Alternative Remedies

Welcome to the Alternative Remedies website. It is a free information site aimed at helping people to break away from the drug-orientated grip of modern medicine.

It aims to inform people about alternative remedies and therapies that can help to alleviate a whole host of different ailments, health issues and personal problems.

With an alternative approach to general health, a door opens to a huge arsenal of complimentary medicines and therapies that are not available from your local medical doctor.

Alternative remedies are meant to compliment modern medicine, not completely replace it. So we advocate working in harmony with your medical practitioner's advice as well as to open your minds and hearts to these alternative ways to better health and natural health remedies to give you alternatives that you may never have realised were there for you.


On the site's Articles page you'll find several individual articles relating to the world of alternative health. This is a section of the website that is growing steadily over time, so if you don't see a topic that interests you now, please feel free to will research and add it to the database.

See below about my note on the blog, as all the old articles in there will now appear under the articles page.

This website used to operate as a Wordpress powered blog to keep you informed and up to date with changes to the website, additions of new articles and products and any breaking news in the world of alternative health in general.

However, the author has had just about enough of Wordpress sites getting hacked and the hassle and pain of having to clean out all the code-junk they like to infest the site with. This last hack that I have just uncovered (December 1st 2018) was so difficult to clean out that I had to resort to deleting the entire site and starting again.

Hence, the appearance of this original homepage I made back in 2007 when I first created the site. The blog will never be resurrected in its old format. From now on, the site will be what's called "static" in the business. That just means I will use basic flat files that I store on my PC and upload to the server manually.

From today, I still have a big job ahead of me to recreate all of the old blog posts (I always backed up my stuff!) as static pages and upload them. What has any of this got to do with the alternative side of life?


It's my little way of hitting back at the system that has almost everyone and his dog creating Wordpress blogs and thinking it's the best thing since sliced bread. Well, it's not. It's also my way of expressing my own ideas on what makes a good website and how I can use my own creativity and individualism to make a great site!

Stay tuned because this site is going in a new, positive and all-round better direction!

Website Author

Terry Didcott is a qualified hypnotherapist and web designer among other things, but what truly inspired him to create this website was his life changing experience about thirteen years ago.

At the age of thirty four, Terry suffered with crippling arthritis. Unable to move around and in great pain, all his caring doctor could tell him was, "There is no cure, you'll just have to live with it." He was then prescribed pain killers and anti inflammatory drugs and left to "get on with it"

Not being one to simply lay down and let the drugs finish him off, he researched the disease and looked for alternatives. He found them.

Within a year he was almost fully mobile again and most of the pain was gone. Now, thirteen years later he is still completely free from arthritis and lives a normal life. This website is a testament to his research into the then little known world of alternative cures. He knows without a shadow of a doubt that alternative remedies work when medical science cannot.

He is currently working on his story of how he overcame arthritis and the book will be available exclusively from this site soon...
