Alternative medicine
Books in this subject area deal with alternative medicine: any healing practice that does not fall within the realm of conventional medicine. It is frequently grouped with complementary medicine, which generally refers to the same interventions when used in conjunction with mainstream techniques. Alternative medicine practices are as diverse in their foundations as in their methodologies. Practices may incorporate or base themselves on traditional medicine, folk knowledge, spiritual beliefs, or newly conceived approaches to healing.
