11 of the Most Popular Alternative Medicine Therapies

The trend toward alternative, natural, holistic and complementary alternative medicine (CAM) is growing.

I like to challenge headache and migraine sufferers to think beyond the small plastic bottles of pharmaceutical drugs and aim for natural and better-for-you cures.
