Whole Medical Systems
Whole medical systems, as the name implies, works with complete systems of theory and practice. These systems were developed before modern conventional medicine and have evolved in tandem. Some examples include homeopathic medicine and naturopathic medicine, which uses non-invasive and natural methods to treat illnesses and diseases. These are relatively new forms of Whole Medical Systems in comparison to the ones coming from non-Western Cultures, such as the traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, a system of medicine with historical roots in the Indian subcontinent.
