Alternative medicines include treatments other than allopathic. Alternative medicine treatments include systems with healing ability such as acupuncture, acupuncture, naturopathy, herbal remedies, and homeopathy. The medical profession does not regard these healing systems as orthodox treatment systems. Some of these treatments are accepted to be of value for certain conditions. Herbal medicines include drugs that are derived from plants. Herbal medicines are either used for therapeutic purpose, or as supplements to improve well-being or health. Herbal products are available as teas, extracts, powders, capsules, tablets, and others. These products are natural, hence considered to be safe. Herbal medicines have the ability to cure almost all the types of diseases.
Nutraceutical is a combination of the words nutrition and pharmaceutical. Nutraceutical medicines or products are fortified food or food products that provide supplementary diet and also help in prevention and treatment of diseases except anemia. Nutraceuticals are not regulated and tested to the extent of pharmaceutical drugs. These have the ability to treat diseases including ADHD, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, anemia, sickle cell, anxiety, aphthous ulcer, carnitine deficiency, depression, dietary supplementation, dyspareunia, eye conditions, fibromyalgia, herbal supplementation, herpes simplex, herpes simplex, suppression, high cholesterol, Huntington’s disease, hypertriglyceridemia, insomnia, jet lag, muscle pain, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, Parkinson’s disease, peripheral neuropathy, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, rheumatoid arthritis, short bowel syndrome, and smoking cessation.
Probiotics are live yeasts and bacteria that benefit the health of individuals. These are referred as ‘healthy’, ‘helpful’, or ‘good’ bacteria. An imbalance of natural yeasts or bacteria within the body has been associated with a range of indications including suppressed immune system, yeast infections, skin rashes, weight gain, diarrhea, and constipation. Probiotics may be taken orally to restore any imbalance in the normal urogenital or intestinal flora. These are available as contained naturally, or dietary supplements or added to foods such as kefir, sauerkraut, or yogurt. Increase in inclination toward safe and lesser side effects boosts the global Alternative Medicines Market. Rise in side effects and adverse drug reactions due to usage of allopathic medicines drives the market. Surge in awareness about the benefits relating to alternative medicines is a key driver of the market. However, slow healing ability of alternative medicines restrains the market.
