ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Alternative Medicine Info, LLC. today announced that its online community information web site has gone live at www.AltMeds.com. The group that created http://www.AltMeds.com has spent two years beta testing the site and building the database of more than 8,000 pages, creating a comprehensive, go-to location for information on alternative medicine philosophies, practices, products, and services.
"We developed this site to provide an excellent starting point for people searching for information about complementary and alternative medical treatments for their own ailments or those of family and friends," said company managing partner Andre Raab. "We are inviting health care practitioners and product vendors to register on www.AltMeds.com and join us in sharing knowledge that can help make people wiser in matters of their own well-being and healthier as a result."
AltMeds.com is the creation of a Nik Froehlich and Andre Raab, two individuals who believe in alternative medicine and natural healthcare, based on their own experiences and the experiences of people they know and love. The site founders are not medical doctors or alternative medicine practitioners, and are not connected to the pharmaceutical, insurance, or hospital industries. Information on the site, drawn from a variety of sources, has no bias toward any specific products or methodology.
In the time since http://www.AltMeds.com began accepting registrants, it has grown into a large and rapidly expanding community where visitors share information about their experiences and also post articles and videos of interest. It's a place to ask questions; find answers; initiate discussions; interact with vendors and practitioners; and locate local natural healthcare products and alternative medicine providers via its comprehensive national directory.
The term "alternative medicine" can be defined as any health care treatment not commonly taught today in American medical schools and includes traditional and folk remedies from countries around the globe. These were treatments handed down from generation to generation, since ancient times, because they were found to be effective. At one time, ancient remedies were the norm, and the pharmaceutical-intensive medicine that doctors learn today wouild be considered the "alternative."
AltMeds.com recognizes that the American health care system is under huge political and economic stress, which has caused a shift away from conventional doctors and drugs and toward traditional natural remedies. The founders believe that, in many cases, alternative treatments can be as effective as pharmaceutical drugs and carry fewer side effects. Site visitors are encouraged to do their own research and make their own informed decisions about health care.
Alternative medicine practitioners and service providers, vendors of alternative products, and those who have had experiences with alternative medicine as patients are invited to share their experiences, ask and answer questions, and share what has worked for them by visiting http://www.AltMeds.com.
AltMeds.com... SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE, OBTAIN IT FROM OTHERS, GIVE A LITTLE, GET A LOT. Self empowerment and action can lead to improved health and quality of life for you and those around you.
