Sometimes modern medicine may not be what the doctor ordered. Alternative medical treatment or homeopathic medicine can offer patients new hope and potentially provide a better quality of life to people suffering from serious illnesses. Homeopathic medicine is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. They can often be used to supplement traditional treatments.
Homeopathic treatments are rarely covered by traditional health insurance and therefore can be quite expensive. In fact, According to the NHSR, the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) industry generated roughly $40 billion in annual revenue in 2007. However, adults in the United States spent roughly $33.9 billion out of pocket on alternative treatments that year. The majority of these expenses ($22 billion) covered self-care costs, including natural products, fitness classes (yoga, tai chi, etc.), and homeopathic medicine; the remaining $11.9 billion was spent on practitioner visits.
