complementary/integrative approach to medicine

Complementary & Alternative Medicine- CAM is a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not generally considered to be part of conventional medicine.

Complementary medicine is used together with conventional medicine. An example of a complementary therapy is using aromatherapy to help lessen a patient's discomfort following surgery. Alternative medicine is used in place of conventional medicine. An example of an alternative therapy is using a special diet to treat cancer instead of undergoing surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy that has been recommended by a conventional doctor.

Integrative medicine combines treatments from conventional medicine and CAM for which there is evidence of safety and effectiveness. More Information: [National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH)]
