Looking For an Example of Alternative Medicine?

There is a lot about alternative medicine that the general public doesn’t know. Skeptics argue about its effectiveness, and write it off as “voodoo” or New Age garbage. What those same skeptics don’t know or won’t admit is that alternative medicine was once the only form of medicine, and was practiced for centuries throughout the world. The ancient Romans may not have had Penicillin, but they were able to treat infection with herbal remedies and nutritional supplements, which are both common examples of alternative medicine. Many treatments that are considered alternative today were once modern and traditional forms of medicine for many cultures.A Well-Known Example of Alternative MedicineA common example of alternative treatment is aromatherapy. Many people think aromatherapy is as simple as being around something that smells good, yet these days aromatherapy techniques are taught in medical schools in France. Aromatherapists believe that our health is directly related to our five senses, and the sense of smell emphasizes healing. Aromatherapy, as an example of alternative medicine, uses 100% pure essential oils derived from nature. It is believed that when inhaled, these oils help reduce our stress level and allow us to relax. Aromatherapy also works as an antiseptic that can help get rid of air born viruses and bacteria, and as a way to treat or eliminate sexual dysfunction or interest. It can also be used for fatigue, as it can be very energizing. Aromatherapy originated thousands of years ago in ancient India and Egypt.Another Example of Alternative MedicineAnimal-Assisted Therapy is also an example of alternative treatments. Once written off as a nice way to pass the time, but not very beneficial to clients with physical or emotional ailments, AAT has since been verified by top medical researchers who have proven that interacting with a loving, non-judgmental animal such as a dog, cat, or horse can lower a person’s blood pressure, help ease pain, anxiety, and depression, and can help calm acute psychiatric clients. AAT has also been proven to decrease the loneliness of elderly patients and help improve the self-esteem of patients.AAT is an example of alternative medicine that is very quickly gaining acceptance. It is commonly used with delinquent and autistic children, and therapy horses are specially trained with an emphasis on being gentle and affectionate. AAT with therapy horses can assist Autistic children with learning to interact and trust the horse, as well as help decrease extra-kinetic movements like rocking, striking out towards others, and head-banging. As for delinquent children placed in a ranch-type group home, they learn to care for the animal by feeding it, cleaning the stall, and developing determination, focus, and concentration through riding lessons. This example of alternative medicine teaches children who were once considered delinquent to learn responsibility, trust, and confidence.It would be possible to list example after example of alternative medicine, including acupuncture, homeopathy, and herbal remedies.

Is Internet Marketing a Farce? Is Medicine School a Farce?

The first concern that many people I interact with have about being an internet marketer is if it even is a real job, let alone one that can even earn an income. Money people find it hard to believe that even earning a few dollars off the Internet is possible.Do Doctors and Internet Marketers get paid?Yes they do because they accomplish tasks (heal the sick) that others are willing to pay for. In the same vein internet marketers are also paid because they are accomplishing tasks that other individuals and web based companies find value in.There might probably be an alcoholic doctor out there who sits at home on his ass all day not doing anything; he probably doesn’t get paid since he is not accomplishing the tasks he is expected to do.In the same way do not expect to be paid if you are in internet marketing but are not really doing much, doing the right things or not adding any value to any other individual or web based company.Are there Doctors and Internet Marketers that get paid millions? Yes there are. If you do a search on the Internet you will find many news articles, postings and instances from various sources of doctors, as well as internet marketers making millions.The point to keep in mind is that not every doctor out there is a millionaire. Some doctors might still be on minimum wage or running money losing operations on their own somewhere in the world. So just because you do internet marketing it does not mean that you are going to become a millionaire eventually.However if you did do the right things as a doctor or internet marketer then the possibility of becoming rich is very real. Not a certainty but something at least conceivable.There are world renowned medical specialists out there making millions and just like that there are internet marketers who have excelled in their respective niches and raking in the bucks. In medicine they tend to be called specialists while in the internet marketing world they are sometimes called internet gurus. These guys are typically highly proficient in using the right internet marketing tools for right kind of product.Do bear in mind as well that just like in the real world, every person that claims to be a guru (internet marketing guru in this case) might not really be one and may in fact be a newbie himself. Haven’t you heard of quack doctors?Do you have to work hard to become a doctor? Or internet marketer? Absolutely YES! Doctors literally mug continuously for 10-15 hours a day for close to 5-8 years on average before they can even start to practice. My extended family does have a few doctors, so I know first hand.I distinctly remember a cousin mugging at a library and not even being able to turn up for Thanksgiving and our Xmas eve dinner while preparing for the exams. The family actually visited him there to say hello! Another nephew was popping pills just to stay awake to finish studying the syllables.Passing exams is not the end of it, the first few years as a practicing doctor can involve several 24-hour ER shifts in a week and periodic examinations thrown in as well.The truth of the matter is internet marketing can make you money if you work hard at it. It is indeed not a scam per se but there are many programs out there that over promise and under deliver. Beware of “make a million dollars in 3 days” type of affiliate marketing schemes that don’t sound realistic.
