The number of people who turn to "alternative" medicine for chronic and even incurable diseases is increasing all the time. This phenomenon, despite not complying with the principles of established science, has assumed social and economic significance. Non-conventional medicine approaches disease from a holistic perspective, from which mind and body are seen as closely linked together and the emotional and the objective meet. One of the main criticisms which advocates of alternative medicine level at official medicine hinges on the idea that by seeking to demonstrate only "the objectivity of the observed phenomenon" there is the risk that the medical intervention could be distracted from its original purpose. So what should we be treating, the disease, the patient, or the person? In the western world, there is no reason to exclude the possibility of combining medical procedures, central to the biological aspects of the treatment, with other types of intervention, non- medical but always directed, primarily, at safeguarding the individual's psychophysical wellbeing.
