Baha'i has no special, esoteric, alternative healing system. As an inclusive religion, it is also medically inclusive. That is, while most Western Baha'is rely first on conventional medicine, homeopathy and naturopathy are also accepted - but with the caveat that: where there is no controlliing professional body, be cautious in choosing a practitioner. Yoga is another system of health medicine that is accepted, but yet again one should be cautious in choosing a teacher since there is no governing body and no universal set of standards. Medicine, Chiropractic, Osteopathy and, to a much lesser extent, Homeopathy and Naturopathy, are the systems of choice. If you are looking for a special system given as a revelation of some sort by Baha, you will not find it.
