Most medical doctors don’t agree with alternative doctors that alternative treatments work to cure any disease, especially serious health problems. However, evidence has proven that alternative treatments can and does work. Perhaps, it’s more of a financial disagreement then anything. If people use alternative treatment remedies to treat or prevent recurrences, medical doctors will receive fewer patients and will not be able to prescribe as many medications. However, one should never avoid seeing a medical doctor or receive traditional medical treatment if they have serious health problems.
One thing medical and alternative doctors do agree that cancer needs to be eliminated. Both doctors agree that early detection; therefore, early surgery is the most effective type of treatment for cancer. The disagreement is over the type of treatment that follows surgery. Most traditional doctors think radiation and chemotherapy are the best follow up treatments for cancer. Alternative doctors say that alternative treatments help prevent recurrence of the disease. Alternative treatment focuses on changing ones’ diet and environment to prevent the disease.
