Sources of Alternative Medicine

There has long been debate surrounding the application and effectiveness of popular alternative medicine treatments as compared to Western medicine. Recently, scientists successfully cloned human stem cells thanks to the help of sophisticated equipment and meticulous laboratory-style research. But as much of the focus of modern medicine has heavily centered on innovations in technology, you may be surprised to find that more than four billion people (65-80 percent of the world's population) rely on alternative medicine.

For an example of nontraditional medicine, consider yoga. Not only does this practice provides benefits like relaxation and an excuse to curl up on a mat, but it also helps control diabetes symptoms. This playlist illustrates common uses of holistic medicine and begs the question: Can nontraditional and Western medicines work together?
