Alternative medicine is any practice that is put forward as having the holistic healing effects of medicine, but is not based on evidence gathered with the scientific method. It may consist of a wide range of health care practices, products and therapies, using methods of medical diagnosis and treatments which were typically not included in the degree courses of established medical schools teaching medicine, including surgery. Examples include homeopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic and acupuncture.
