Conventional Medicine
 
Definition

Conventional Medicine comprises a body of thought, knowledge and practice that is commonly referred to as 'modern medicine'. It is an umbrella name that covers many fields of specialisation e.g. Cardiology, as well as the provision of "General Practitioner" or GP services. Conventional Medicine also includes the provision of hospital services, radiology, pathology, surgery and pharmaceutical medicine.

 
 
How It Works

Conventional medicine generally uses an approach of diagnosing a symptom or set of symptoms, and then prescribing a treatment or product (generally pharmaceutical) to address the symptom(s).

 
 
Conditions

A wide range of conditions are treated with Conventional Medicine. Generally Conventional Medicine is better at treating acute conditions as opposed to chronic conditions.

 
 
Expect

During a Conventional Medical Consulation a GP will discuss your medical history, conduct a standard medical examination and then recommend the most appropriate course of action. If appropriate, the GP may prescribe pathology, urine or stool analysis to assist in the diagnosis.
