WITH A REPUTATION FOR RESULTS
Complementary Therapies and Alternative Medicine includes therapies from very diverse historical and cultural backgrounds; however they do share a common view of health and wellness and tend to be 'holistic', i.e. they treat the whole person, not just the symptoms of a disease. It is believed that wellness comes from a balance between the body, mind and the environment.
Each person is treated as a unique individual who has his or her own particular make-up, is subject to a unique combination of stresses, lives in a unique environment, and has his or her own
healing mechanisms to recover from illness.
Many forms of Complementary and Alternative Medicine aim to stimulate or enable the body's ability to heal itself. Many complementary and alternative therapies require the individual's active participation in the treatment. The holistic approach of complementary and alternative therapies usually requires more 'lifestyle' changes (diet, exercise and positive thinking) than conventional treatments. This may be a key to their continuing success with those who have tried them.
Just as their nature and origins are diverse, the ways in which complementary and alternative therapies are thought to work are diverse, although many are based on the idea of self-healing. The rapid growth of complementary and alternative medicine suggests that some people are not fully satisfied with conventional medicine. Complementary and alternative medicine refers to a wide range of therapies and practices which are outside the mainstream of medicine. Complementary medicine uses therapies which work alongside conventional medicine.
In the UK at least 30% of people use complementary and alternative medicine each year, and over 50% of us use some form of complementary and alternative medicine in our lifetime.This may be because their symptoms are not fully controlled by conventional medicine or perhaps be due to a desire to use treatments that are more natural and 'self-empowering' (meaning feeling more in control).
