Alternative - most commonly used when looking for more options. Example: The drink was too sweet, he looked for an alternative (different) beverage. With regard to the medical field, Alternative Medicine - any types of healing or treating an illness or disease that is not a traditional medical practice. Example: A patient has a stomach ache. The doctor gave the patient a cup of black tea. The tea is an alternative medicine. The doctor could have given him an antacid. Alternating Current - an alternating current (AC) is an electrical current. More specifically, a current that periodically flows in opposite directions. If you are researching Alternative Medicine, the alternating current may be in reference to a practice called "Electrotherapy". Electrotherapy is a medical treatment that uses electrical currents to treat / help a wide range of illnesses or symptoms. I hope this helps you.
