Let me try and reply to your post more accurately. Basically, I disagree.
I think that "chemophobia" (although I wouldn't necessarily call it that myself) is actually disturbingly prevalent in our society. I'm not saying that looking for alternatives can hurt, but if people are too be more trusting of an alternative treatment because it has the words "traditional", "natural" or "drug-free" in the description somewhere, that can be very dangerous. When cancer patients turn to homeopathy instead of following the advice of the oncologists, people die. This is serious.
But yes, by all means -- do your research. Just make sure you do it well, and understand that there are drugs in "alternative" medicine as well, and risks to not following your doctor's advice.
