Use of alternative medicineEdit

If patients wish to use methods of treatment which are outside mainstream medical practice, and which regular doctors do not believe can work, does the system support that choice?

Supported by the systemEdit

  • Flag-portocapital Porto Capital - Support is provided for those who wish to use traditional (folklore, natural, etc.) medicine.
  • Flag-mariim Mari'im — limited support is provided for those who wish to employ traditional cures from local folk-lore, although doctors are required to warn patients that most doctors do not believe in the effectiveness of such treatments.

Not supportedEdit

  • Flag-aethelnia Aethelnia - Alternative medicine not expressely prohibited, but not supported by mainstream medicine. Alternative medicine practioners may not call themselves doctors of medicine, nor are they allowed to wear white coats.
  • Flag-lendosa Lendosa — medical treatments not endorsed by mainstream medicine are considered the equivalent of no treatment at all. Those who chose to use these treatments for themselves are considered to have declined treatment, while those to chose to use these treatments for their dependents are considered to have (illegally) withheld treatment. Those who promote treatments which mainstream doctors cannot prove the effectiveness of can be charged with false advertising causing injury or death.
  • Flag-trinia Trinia — non-mainstream medicine does not have any place in the Trinian national health system, although patients who wish to employ it are able to do so for themselves.
  • XochimechatlFlag Xochimechatl — no major health providers make use of alternative medicine, although there is no great difficulty in working outside the system, and traditional remedies are relatively popular.
