People in africa have so many customs specially Christians who use Alternative Medicine, thinking that the Bible condemns techniques such as biofeedback, maditation, herbal remedies, acupuncture, chiropractic care, hypnosis, yoga, visualization, homeopathy and aromatherapy. They think that some kinds of alternative medicine are good for health but they tink that other are bad too, for example: The Hallelujah Diet (a popular vegetarian Christian diet), also earns high marks for its emphasis on biblical nutrition, while marijuana is not recomended, despite benefical results in treating some diseases.

Yoga is fine as a complementary practice that "can improve general well-being", but it is "antithetical to biblical Christianity" when used "as a deeply religious practice with the goal of union with the divine". Prescription drugs are sometimes derived from herbal remedies (such as aspirin from willow bark). They caution readers to give more credibility to therapies that have been clinically tested in randomly controlled trials. Always the Christians promote the theological idea that thair bodies are temples of the Holly Spirit.
