Re: Should medical students be taught alternative medicine?
I do not understand the term 'alternative' medicine. Since Ancient Times Plants, Herbs were used. These Ancient traditions are the original remedies. Gradually, man started using these plant extracts adding chemicals which is the Pharmaceutical Trade. This has side effects. I therefore presume Alternative refers to Pharmaceuticals and not the Ancient Traditional plant cures which do not have any side effect. It is this Original treatment which needs to be revived.
Peace be with you.
