Not all diseases today have a fixed cure or synthetic medicine that is already available on the market. Scientists are still working on these synthetic medicines to cater the needs of people that suffer from different kinds of diseases. People really need to find other alternative medicine methods to keep on fighting diseases they have to suffer.
Today, there are quite a number of discovered ways that are tried and tested by fellow human beings who used to suffer the same diseases that other people have. Alternative medicine is defined as any healing practice that is not within the bounds of conventional medicine. It is usually based on historical or cultural traditions and sometimes they are even taken from personal experiences that have been passed on to generations or new found discoveries by common people while trying new ways of treating and preventing health problems. Various fruits and vegetables, healthy foods are known to work very well. Fruits and vegetables can be converted into shakes or juices for medicinal purposes and so can the vegetables. Yet there are also some methods other than eating fruits and vegetables.
One kind of alternative medicine that has been most recently discovered is the music therapy. During the research conducted in a University, the music therapy has been found to be able to relieve fibromyalgia pain.

Fibromyalgia has the symptoms like unexplained pain and stiffness of joints and muscles, also recurrent fatigue, bowel and sleep disorders and also depression could be a symptom of fibromyalgia. These signs were observed to have declined during the experiment when researchers used music therapy with relaxation techniques.
Saffron is also known to be quite effective. In addition it is known as the most expensive spice that is being sold on the market today.
