Alternative Medicine

Alternative—or complimentary therapies as they are often called—can be beneficial for some people. However, it is always important to talk to your doctor when you’re considering starting complimentary or alternative therapies.

Even something as simple as adding vitamin supplements can have an effect on the way your body absorbs any other medicine you may be taking.
