These therapies is instead of using the medicines the drug industry produced, it generally uses the methods, which affect the body’s network.
At the beginning of an illness, changes occur in the nervous system in other words in the body’s network before the structural damages. For this reason, the approach to healing and patients must primarily be at an energetically-informative level.
As a result of the overall healing of the patient, the methods included in integrative and/or complementary medicine proves quicker discovery compared to conventional treatment. Physicians with this point of view use conventional methods more effective and correctly.
