In brief: Many approaches
There are many alternative approaches including bodywork (chiropractic/osteopathic/massage), acupuncture, frequency specific microcurrent, prolotherapy/prolozone, vitamins/minerals/amino acids & other supplements, herbal medicines, homeopathy, biofeedback, yoga, chi gong & relaxation techniques.
Whatever modality, it is best to find the underlying cause & contributing factors & address those issues.

In brief: Alternative Answers
Many pharmaceuticals are plant derived and chemically modified to achieve certain properties.
A naturopathic clinician specializes in herbal supplements and medicinals that can be very effective and complement traditional medical practices. Hippocrates, the 'father' of modern medicine, said it best when he said, “let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. Eat well to be well.
