Alternative health care or alternative medicine generally refers to therapies not typically employed within traditional western medical practice. This includes natural medicine, homeopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture, theraputic massage and more. In case you are interested in alternative health care options, here are some resources that have been recommended by students and scholars at Yale. Alternative health care may be covered by your private health insurance, and you would need to call your insurance company to check since policies vary widely.
