While in the face of illness, it is always good to consult with your general practicing physician, it's also good to keep your mind open to other forms of treatment. Many Westerners are initially skeptical about the effectiveness of alternative medicine, but after giving it a try, are convinced of its amazing health benefits.

If you choose to pursue a career in alternative medicine, you will learn to take approaches to illness that are much different from the ones you see on primetime TV emergency room dramas. Undeniably, there are a multitude of pathways you can take in the field alternative medicine. For instance, you might pursue a modality within traditional Chinese medicine, such as "cupping," or you may prefer something completely different. With a career in alternative medicine, you are likely to be learning practices that have been passed down for centuries, so it is of the utmost important that you devote yourself fully to your craft and to your desire to help others.

The field of alternative medicine is incredibly diverse, and so are the salaries that alternative medicine practitioners can earn.
