Resource Guide to Naturopathy and Alternative Medicine
While mainstream medicine has relied on medical journals and laboratory research in order to advance, alternative medicine tends to take a bolder approach. Generally, alternative medicine dives into traditional and naturopathic remedies in search of new or long forgotten cures. This has led to many healthy, unfortunately overlooked options for patients. So whether you are seeking alternative medicine as a supplement to your current treatment or looking for a fully naturopathic solution to what ails you, this guide will show you where to find more information.
