Complementary and alternative medicine is popular nowadays. This popularity has to do with western medicine’s shortcomings in the treatment of various chronic conditions. While alternative and complementary medicine incorporate similar methods, there is a difference between the two. Complementary medicine complements other medical approaches, which has shown high success rates in the treatment of many disorders. Alternative medicine clinic implies using alternative methods to the widely accepted approaches and is less popular in recent years.
