" Alternative Medicine encompasses approaches to patients and illnesses that are either not widely taught or practiced in conventional medical schools or that challenge commonly assumed viewpoints of the dominant professional health care system in the United States."(Hughes, Ellen M.D, 1997)
Treating the patient’s whole body using a “holistic approach”
“The 1993 Eisenberg Study revealed that about one-third of Americans were using alternative therapies and spending nearly $14 billion annually for health care.” (Budrys, Grace, 2001)
