  1. As a concluding remark, it is worth emphasizing the belief that nature has the cure and treatment of every illness but this is people who should find its keys and secrets. There is a general hopefulness which illustrates that by the application of technologies and science, mysteries of every natural material and element could be discovered which not only prevents the spreading of the misconceptions but also facilitates the developments of the scientific knowledge and medical treatments.

  2. On the other side, alternative medicines are not risk-free; they can do more harm than good if taken without having the details of their effects on the body. People might abuse natural medicines the same way as they do synthetic drugs. They have the misconception that if unconventional medicine consists of herbal products which are natural, then there is no harm done if they triple the dosage, or more.

  3. Nevertheless, nobody can close his/her eyes to the benefits of alternative medicines which have been harvested so far. To exemplify this vantage point, gone are the days in which people were well-fed and their diet incorporated meat, dairy products, grains, etc. So, in this era, using herbal approaches could compensate for the deficiencies. Another example which merits consideration is that touch has been always one of main factors for healing a chronic disease and many believe that touch could alleviate most of agonizing pains. Therefore, alternative medicines have some advantages which cannot be denied comprehensively.

  4. Nowadays, there is such a voracious appetite toward other forms of medical substances that is increasing the controversy around their medical aspects. Whilst many do believe and advocate the application of such materials, a vast majority of not only people but also scientists refute the idea. A great number of opponents of not applicating non-medical substances constantly blame the supporters of ideas of deceiving others financially and spreading superstitions unconsciously.

  5. Although, alternative medicine is used by a significant percentage of the population notably cancer therapy but it is not the same as experimental medicine. Besides, alternative therapies are often based on tradition, belief in supernatural energies, etc. So, they are not based on scientific knowledge. In fact, alternative medicine consists of a wide variety of therapies ranging from those are ineffective, to those with known harmful and toxic effects.
