To choose the most suitable one, it is important to listen to the doctor and be informed about all the available options, especially if an alternative therapy is chosen Kambo.
Alternative medicine encompasses all those practices that are not included in traditional Western medicine but that claim to have a healing effect. Hypnosis, homeopathy, macrobiotics, reflexology and yoga are some of the most popular treatments. They come from different traditions and their effectiveness has not been demonstrated with current clinical trials beyond the placebo effect. The fact that a patient believes in a therapy induces the body to produce endorphins that act as natural pain relievers. If you choose to try an alternative therapy, it is important to proceed with common sense:
- Do not abandon conventional therapy. Alternative therapy should complement conventional therapy, not replace it.
- Record the experience. It is useful to write down the entire process, the professionals who are involved in it, and the changes observed.
- Keep the doctor informed. This can alert the patient to possible side effects or interactions with the medication.
Additionally, those undergoing alternative treatment for multiple sclerosis should exercise caution and, before trying any alternative, should:
- Contact several sources to obtain reliable information about the therapy being considered.
- Discuss alternative therapy with the doctor. Get their point of view on the risks, benefits, side effects, and possible drug interactions.
- Find out if the professional carrying out the therapy works with conventional doctors.
- Talk to people who have used the treatment. It is best not to rely on references provided by the alternative professional or the person who is trying to sell the product or service.
- Verify the history (training and experience) of the professional offering the treatment.
- Thoroughly investigate any treatment that requires hospitalization.
- Calculate the total cost of therapy. Some treatments are very expensive and most are not covered by social security.
