Alternative Healthcare medicine is a healing practice that is not related to any of the scientific methods of treatment. It consists of a wide range of health care practices, natural products and therapies, ranging from natural herbs to the modified by products extract. It includes various new traditional medicine practices such as homeopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, energy medicine, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, and Christian faith healing. These treatment methodologies do not show relevance to any science-based healthcare system but depending on the natural practices.
Complementary medicine is an alternative medicine approach used together with conventional medical treatment in a belief to cure the particular disease. Integrative medicine is the combination of several practices and methods of alternative medicine with conventional medicine.
Alternative medical diagnoses and treatments neither taught in medical schools nor used in medical practices. Alternative therapies lack scientific validation, and are usually based on religion, tradition, superstition, belief in supernatural energies or pseudoscience. Regulation and approval of alternative medicine treatment varies from region to region.
The term Alternative Medicine means any form of medicine that is outside the mainstream of western or conventional medicine. The complementary & alternative medicine market is expected to generate a revenue of USD 196.87 billion by 2025.
Reports of early 2016 stated that approximately two thirds of the population in most of the developed and developing countries have reported using one or the other form of alternative or complementary form of medicine. There are certain countries that are moving towards the legalization of some alternative medicine therapies that are being backed with approved clinical data.
Medicinal plants are important sources for pharmaceutical manufacturing. New researches in the field of traditional healing systems has led to a resurgence of interest in herbal medicines in Europe and North America, where herbal products have been incorporated into so-called alternative, complementary, holistic or integrative medical systems. Reports of consumers showed positive attitudes towards herbal products because they believe them to be of natural rather than synthetic origin, they believe that such products are more likely to be safe than drugs and are considered part of a healthy lifestyle, and they can help to avoid unnecessary contact with conventional western medicine.

Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Practice which involves the insertion of the tips of needles into the skin at specific points for the purpose of treating various disorders by stimulating nerve impulses. The objective of acupuncture is to regulate and normalize the flow of the Chi, so that the Yin and the Yang return to a state of dynamic equilibrium. Chinese medicine does not draw a sharp line between mind and body as Western Medicine does. Acupuncture help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis or knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches.
