Naturopathy.  The foundation of Naturopathic medicine is the vitalistic philosophy of natural healing -- the "healing power of nature."  The emphasis is not on finding a disease and killing it, but rather on helping the body establish its own state of good health so that the body can fight the disease naturally.  Locate a Naturopathic Physician.

Homeopathy.  Homeopathic remedies act by stimulating individuals to heal themselves and are selected based on the Law of Similars: "Let Likes Be Cured By Likes."  Locate a Homeopathic Physician.

Holistic medicine is a system of health care which fosters a cooperative relationship among all those involved, leading towards optimal attainment of the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of health.  It emphasizes the need to look at the whole person, including analysis of physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, social, spiritual, and lifestyle values.  

Chinese Medicine has been used as front line medicine by the majority of the worlds population since before recorded history, and is still the most widely utilized medical system in the world today. Adverse reactions to Chinese herbs are extremely rare and are negligible when compared to those commonly produced by pharmaceutical drugs.

Ayurveda, one of the oldest systems of natural healthcare, literally means "science of life and longevity," and originated in the ancient medical traditions of India. According to Ayurveda, each of us inherits a unique mix of three mind/body principles which creates our specific mental and physical characteristics.

There are many different, yet effective, natural complementary methods for treating disease.  Medicine's role should be to promote the body's ability to heal itself. While a Western physician turns to his medical reference book to find drugs to kill viruses, a homeopath or Chinese herbalist reaches for natural remedies to boost the immune system and enable it to do its job.  Use MedSearch to Locate a Holistic Practitioner.
