Conventional or Traditional Medicine
Conventional medicine is founded on sound scientific research. That alone makes it better than any untested “alternative medicines” that might be completely useless and even harmful to the person that consumes said medicine. Conventional medicine is run through strict medical trials that are overseen and double checked at every turn. This is something that the proponents of alternative medicine have never done because they know that they’re solutions would not stand up to the scrutiny that any real scientist would require to be convinced of a medication’s legitimacy.

Hey–not saying that medical researchers routinely kill witnesses who figure out that clinical trials aren’t going so well. But you gotta wonder just how efficacious those new drugs really are. Especially when you might be able to avoid ever needing them.
