Well, that is what many people call alternative medicines. Just say the word “alternative medicines” in a room full of doctors and nurses and you would get very strange looks from most of them. And I would be one of them. But maybe the alternative medicines can offer good coping strategies.
somethimes we reach after every method or medicine there is to give us answers and/or relief as a cooing strategy. No matter who offers it, why they offers it and no matter wether or not the method is proven to actually help. Is a positive effect of that method just a placebo-effect? And if you get a positive effect, isn’t It ok to use that method wether the positive effect proven in studies or not? Shorly said; our coping strategy is to seek for relief and/or cure and/or answers by ourselves.
