Summary
The gap between mainstream and alternative medicine is blurring. Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is widely used in Australia; increasingly, people are turning to these treatments for ailments ranging from minor conditions to life-threatening illnesses. While there are many enthusiastic proponents of alternative healing, others remain sceptical and demand scientific evidence of its success. This book explores the various techniques and therapies available, and looks at how to find a reliable CAM practitioner. The book also considers the myths and facts in the debate over the use of alternative treatments, offering differing perspectives from conventional and alternative medical practitioners and peak bodies. What are the potential benefits and harms of these therapies, and how are they regulated? What evidence is there to support the effectiveness and safety of dietary treatments such as herbal medicines and vitamin supplements? Are these medical alternatives a panacea or a placebo?
