Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)

Complementary and alternative medicine s (CAM, short) is a topic of common discussion these days. You say, practices and products used or used for the treatment of a patient, that the "standard" are not part of care as a complementary medicine or referred to alternative medicine are. Even in the United States, where this discussion is very much in the foreground, the list of practices and products, the complementary and alternative medicine is constantly be seen by a change.

Some experts argue that the use of the term complementary medicine or alternative medicine is faulty. They say there is no alternative medicine and as a believer in science and evidence, we should be the medicine, which sufficiently tested and proven safe and effective, and medicine, which does not sufficiently tested and has been proven safe and effective talk. It doesn't matter whether the therapeutic technique is Eastern or Western; Our focus will be in the patient and his disease or illness. Be no more than komplementär-and get adopted into conventional health care practices and products that currently CAM but later proven safe and effective and alternative medicine.

It is interesting to find that during the medical profession may not be happy about "non-standard" procedures and products - CAM - complementary turn patients to appear and in increasing numbers, as some surveys show alternative medicine. A survey in the United States in the year 2002 showed that 36% of Americans use alternative therapy such as yoga, meditation, herbal treatments in the past 12 months. 1998 A survey of BBC phone in the Kingdom found about 20% of adults use alternative medicine in the last 12 months. It was found that the use of alternative medicine by 30% between 1990 and 1997 had increased. These numbers contain no use of prayers as alternative or complementary medicine as you practiced by many people.

The United States States that the number of college courses in alternative medicine is growing. Naturopathy and osteopathy are also wider acceptance in medical colleges and universities. They seem to take a balanced view, that they neither reject conventional medicine, nor blind adopted the alternative practices.

It is obvious that medical products and processes, not under the term "standard care" a substantial impact on the company have. This is a measure of recognition of this fact, that in 1998, the National Center for complementary and alternative medicine (NCCAM) as lead agency of the Federal Government for scientific research on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) was built.

We are some of these issues of complementary and alternative medicine and try to understand what this different treatment require.
