    Re: Medicine vs Medication

    medicine is a substance that you treat an illness or a study or practice of treating or preventing illnesses

    on the other hand medication is a medicine, or a set of medicines or drugs used to improve a particular condition or illness

    so you can not say alternative medication or traditional medication as the study or practice is meant here. We say alternative medicine or traditional medicine in this case.

    hope I was able to shed some light on it.
    cheers
