Prescription Management, Refills & Alternative Medicine Q & A

What is alternative medicine?

Alternative medicine is a branch of medicine involving treatments that are different from conventional treatments. Conventional treatments are usually based on the results of longtime, widely accepted scientific research.

Alternative medicine is sometimes more difficult to prove or backed by newer research that is often less extensive than the research behind standard treatments. It is a different branch of medicine and more is being discovered.

What does alternative medicine involve?

Alternative medicine utilizes various treatments, such as nutritional counseling, natural products, lifestyle changes, massage therapy, acupuncture, reflexology, and vitamins and herbal supplements.

The right healthy lifestyle modifications can have a profound positive impact on your general health and wellness and help decrease chronic disease burden.

Some alternative medicine treatments cross over and are also used in conventional medicine, such as acupuncture. Alternative medicine can incorporate helpful additional modalities, such as music, movement, and mindfulness.

Alternative medicine often involves mind and body practices. It’s centered around viewing each individual as a whole person instead of just a patient with specific isolated symptoms.

Click2MD physicians consider every aspect of your health, including your mindset and psychology, your sleep habits, your stress, your daily life habits, and more. This ensures the physician leaves no stone unturned.

Alternative medicine assists your body’s natural healing process. Treatment involves the body, mind, and spirit, personalized care, and a strong and comfortable patient-practitioner relationship.

What is evidence-based medicine?

For example, you cannot have two groups of people with pneumonia and treat one group with antibiotics and the other without antibiotics and then compare the results. Based on experience and evidence, antibiotics are beneficial (recommended).

The studies are designed to objectively determine what sorts of advantages or disadvantages a treatment or test has, whether it might be harmful and whether certain people might benefit from it.

Evidence-based medicine is based on evidence that’s highly respected in the medical field. 

What does evidence-based medicine involve?

Evidence-based medicine usually involves medications that may or may not be approved for specific conditions by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Physicians have been using this medication for such conditions and have good results and low side effects. The physicians at Click2MD make you aware of this and prescribe only if necessary.

Evidence-based medicine integrates individual clinical expertise with the best available clinical evidence from systematic research.

Evidence-based medicine is part of allopathic medicine, normally referred to as medical treatment.
