Finally, it can be said that alternativemedicine and modern medicine are important parties in the field of health andtherapeutic, each of the method of treatment and methods that are based on andfollowed in the treatment of diseases. I believe that there should be a singlesystem of medicine, a comprehensive system that takes into account thereligious and spiritual beliefs of patients and their social and culturalvalues, a system that treats the patient as one unit, the human mind, body andsoul are a complete system that affects each other.
