The rumor going around about “Alternative Medicine” and “Primary Medicine”
That Natural Therapies such as Massage, Yoga, TCM, even Nutrition, to name a few are “Alternative Medicines” and that synthetic medicines and surgery are “Primary Medicine”.

- The science or practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease (in technical use often taken to exclude surgery).
