The term alternative medicine (also termed as complementary medicine) refers to any healing practice (therapy) that does not fall within the umbrella of conventional medicine. Commonly practiced alternative therapies are naturopathy, chiropractic, herbalism, traditional Chinese medicine, Unani and Ayurveda, meditation, yoga, hypnosis, homeopathy, acupuncture etc.

There are some other practices also in addition to the above practices like hypnosis, aromatherapy, spiritual and diet-based therapies.

The conventional medicine is established on scientific investigations and evidence based.

For examples Acne can be treated by applying  5% tea tree oil gel. It is supposed to be as effective as 5% benzoyl peroxide for treating acne.

Natural medicines might work slowly but they are less harmful in terms of side effects. It does not mean we can take any medicine for a disease without consultation.. One should be careful in taking medicines and must consult a naturopath or herbal expert.

There are many herbs and spices (e.g. fenugreek, garlic, ginger) which have blood sugar lowering properties that make them useful for type 2 diabetes patients.
