Let's face it, Doctors are very quick to prescribe medication. But sometimes, the side effects of the medication are worse than the actual illness. Do we want to spend our lives depending on some pill to make us better? No! We can do things to make us better.
There are many types of alternative medicines. They include massage therapy, acupuncture, new age healing, special diets, music therapy, aromatherapy, herbal medicine and much more. Alternative medicine can help migraines, chronic pain, back pain and more! It has also been used by a lot of terminally ill patients, a lot of AIDS or cancer victims prefer it.
There are many different kinds of alternative medicine, you just have to find out which one is right for you. There is so much information on the internet about alternatives to medicine for so many different kinds of disease. What is the hurt in trying?
I am actually using acupuncture for my migraines, and I've seen such a difference. The thought of acupuncture is way worse than it actually is! Most of the time, I do not even feel the needle going into my head. All I feel is deep relaxation and the pain escaping my body. You do not know until you try. I think too many people give up on chronic pain, there maybe something you can do to get your life back.
Try! That's the best advice. And if something does not work, try something else. Is not living worth it? You owe it to yourself. Research and talk to your Doctor, and hopefully you will find the right treatment for you.
