雅思大作文: 替代疗法与传统医疗 To what extent do you agree

Currently there is a trend towards the use of alternative forms of medicine.

However, at best these methods are ineffective, and at worst they may be dangerous.

To what extent do you agree with this statement?

范文

Alternative medicine is not new. It is accepted that it pre-dates conventional medicine and it is still used by many people all over the world. I am unconvinced that it is dangerous, and feel that both alternative and conventional medicine can be useful.

替代疗法并不新鲜。人们普遍认为它比传统医学更早,至今仍为世界各地许多人所使用。我不相信这是危险的,我认为替代疗法和传统疗法都是有用的。

There are several reasons why the conventional medical community is often dismissive of alternatives. Firstly, there has been little scientific research into such medicine, so there is a scarcity of evidence to support the claims of their supporters. Furthermore, people often try such treatment because of recommendations from friends, and therefore come to the therapist with a very positive attitude, which may be part of the reason for the cure. Moreover, these therapies are usually only useful for long-term, chronic conditions. Acute medical problems, such as accidental injury, often require more conventional methods.

有几个原因可以解释为什么传统的医学界经常对替代疗法不屑一顾。首先,这类药物的科学研究很少,因此支持其支持者的说法的证据不足。此外,人们经常因为朋友的推荐而尝试这种治疗,因此以非常积极的态度去看治疗师,这可能是治疗的部分原因。此外,这些疗法通常只对长期慢性疾病有效。急性医学问题,如意外伤害,通常需要更传统的方法。

On the other hand, there remain strong arguments for the use of alternatives. Despite the lack of scientific proof, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence to suggest that these therapies work. In addition, far from being dangerous, they often have few or no side effects, so the worst outcome would be no change. One of the strongest arguments for the effectiveness of alternative therapies in the West is that, whilst conventional medicine is available without charge, many people are prepared to pay considerable sums for alternatives. If they were totally unhelpful, it would be surprising if this continued.

另一方面,使用替代方案的理由仍然很充分。尽管缺乏科学证据,但有很多轶事证据表明这些疗法有效。此外,它们非但不危险,而且往往几乎没有或根本没有副作用,所以最坏的结果就是没有变化。西方关于替代疗法有效性的最有力的论据之一是,尽管传统医学是免费的,但许多人愿意为替代疗法付出相当大的代价。如果他们完全没有帮助,如果这种情况继续下去,那将是令人惊讶的。

I strongly believe that conventional medicine and alternative therapies can and should coexist. They have different strengths, and can both be used effectively to target particular medical problems. The best situation would be for alternative therapies to be used to support and complement conventional medicine.

我坚信传统医学和替代疗法能够并且应该共存。它们有不同的优势,并且都可以有效地针对特定的医疗问题。最好的情况是使用替代疗法来支持和补充传统医学。
