Scope and Importance:
Alternative medicine is a conventional method of healing the disease by examining the symptoms without collecting clinical evidences. An integrative approach to medical treatment is a broader approach to healing by allocating more time and attention to the patient and not solely based on the biomedical western model of treatment. CAM (Complimentary and alternate medicines) therapies have been extensively demonstrated and recognized as safe, effective, and nontoxic additions to conventional healthcare.
It is basically aimed at the Clinical Practitioners, medical/health practitioners, students, professionals and researchers and professional bodies and institutions.
Alternative medicine can be defined as the practice having the healing effects of medicine but not based on evidence gathered using the scientific method. It involves a wide range of health care practices, products and therapies, alternative medical diagnoses and treatments which typically have not been included in the degree courses of established medical schools or used in conventional medicine. Examples of alternative medicine are homeopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, and acupuncture. Homeopathy is a branch of science that deals with curing a disease by administration of a very low dose of substance that creates similar symptoms in a healthy person. These ideas are called as 'like cures like' and the 'law of the minimum dose'. It is widely considered as a pseudoscience. Naturopathy is based on vitalism, which puts forward a special energy called vital energy or vital force that governs the bodily processes such as growth, reproduction, metabolism, and adaptation. Naturopathy is a holistic approach with non-invasive treatment and it is similar to conventional medicine which encourages minimal use of surgery and drugs. The term "naturopathy" is derived from Greek and Latin, which means "nature disease. Acupuncture involves penetration of the skin with needles to stimulate certain points on the body. It is part of traditional Chinese medicine. It is based on removing pain or curing diseases by correcting the imbalances in the flow of energy called as qi through its channels called as meridians. Chiropractic deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal disorders and their effects on health.
