Complementary and alternative medicine is a group of assorted medical and healthcare systems, practices and products that are not considered or accepted by conventional medical practice. One reason that this type of medicine is termed complementary and alternative is due to the fact that most of these practices don’t have the scientific evidence to backup their methods.
Many Americans have started looking towards alternative medicine rather than general medicine. The reason for this is due to the amount of prescriptions that general doctors are prescribing without treating the patient. People want doctors to care about them and their problems. They are tired of doctors throwing pills at the problem.
In the past MD's didn't believe in alternative medicines. However now a days patients are turning to complementary and alternative medicines. And because so many people are turning to alternative medicines, insurances have started to cover some of these treatments. Even MD's are starting to catch up to current medicine and use complimentary treatments in conjunction with conventional medicine. Complementary and alternative medicine involves the connection between the mind and body and not only relieves symptoms but works to resolve the underlying problems as well.
Complementary medicine and alternative medicine are two completely different types of medicine in the way that they work for patients. Complementary medicine is used together in conjunction with conventional medicine. Whereas alternative medicine is used in the place of conventional medicine.
Whether you have used complementary or alternative medicine in the past, or are looking for a different type of approach to your healthcare needs, complementary and alternative medicine is continually growing in its practices, treatments, and products. Some complementary and alternative medicines include Yoga, Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Biofeedback, meditation, hypnotherapy, and nutritional supplements.
