Alt. Medicine

Safeguards

Things to remember when adopting Alternative Therapy:

  1. Find out more about the practitioner and his/her qualifications.

  2. Meet patients who have been treated by the practitioner. Do not go by claims in advertisements or newspaper articles

  3. Discuss the possible side effects and worst case scenarios with the practitioner. Get a second opinion, if possible.

  4. Though there has been much research in many fields of alternative medicine, empirical double blind studies where processes and results have been documented are few.

  5. See that the equipment such as acupuncture needles are new/sterilized ones.

  6. If you are prescribed medication check the list of ingredients.
