Alternative medical systems
One of the reasons for this sorry state of affairs is that alternative medical systems receive little official support and minimal funding. The situation often deteriorates into a conventional versus alternative medicine confrontation, with each system belittling the other, and this is a real tragedy. By ignoring alternative systems, doctors may be depriving patients of better medical treatment options. We need to remember that all doctors are on the same side - all of us want our patients to get better, no matter what system of medicine we practice!
