If this is your first time to hear the term alternative medicine, it's not really a surprise. This is because alternative medicine is not commonly practiced by people. 

WebMD actually defines alternative medicine as "medical treatments that are used instead of traditional (mainstream) therapies." Alternative medicine is also called complementary medicine by some people. 

Examples of alternative medicine include acupuncture, chiropractic medicine, herbal medicine, and even aromatherapy, yoga, and meditation.

iOS and Android Apps for Alternative Medicine

Here are examples of alternative medicine apps that are available for iOS and Android:

It is a useful app both for professional practitioners and people who want to look into alternative medicine as treatment options for their health concerns. 

Alternative Medicine is available for download for Android devices only. 

Handbook of Natural Medicine

For anyone practicing natural medicine and even those who are simply curious about it, the Handbook of Natural Medicine is a good app to have in your phone. 

According to the article by Healthline, it is actually the app version of "The Clinician's Handbook of Natural Medicine" and you can use it to help treat conditions using natural means. 

Handbook of Natural Medicine can be downloaded by Android devices only.

Homeo Guide

Another example of alternative medicine is homeopathy, which is defined by WebMD as "a medical system based on the belief that the body can cure itself."

"Those who practice it use tiny amounts of natural substances, like plants and minerals," WebMD adds. 

A homeopathy app that is available for download for those who practice or want to check out this form of alternative medicine is Homeo Guide. As its name suggests, the app can serve as a guide for anyone who wants to use homeopathy to treat minor ailments and injuries. 

Homeo Guide is available for download for both iOS and Android devices.

Many might not realize it, but yoga can actually be classified as complementary or alternative medicine. A good yoga app to have installed on the phone of any yogi is Yoga Studio.
