The publication has released their latest guide to address the growing interest in the field, aiming to provide readers with comprehensive information about various forms of alternative treatments. According to Rodriguez, CAM refers to a wide range of medical practices that are not considered to be part of standard healthcare but can be used alongside it. The definition includes alternative medical systems, mind-body interventions, biology-based therapies, and manipulative and body-based methods.
As these treatments may not be suitable for everyone, Rodriguez offers an objective overview of each type of CAM therapy and lists how they are typically used. For example, she notes that manipulative CAM treatments such as massage therapy, chiropractic, yoga, and tai chi can help with muscle pain, flexibility, balance, and physical well-being, but they can also be difficult to perform, expensive, time-consuming, and may not necessarily work for all conditions.
On the other hand, alternative medicine like herbal remedies, naturopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, or TCM, and Ayurveda can be less invasive than standard treatments and provide relief for specific symptoms, but some of their purported health benefits are not backed by scientific evidence.
Although many forms of complementary medicine and therapies can be practiced at home, Rodriguez advises readers to seek advice from a medical professional before starting, as some treatments may react adversely with medication or exacerbate certain health conditions. She also cautions that while some CAM therapies can be used to manage the symptoms and side effects of cancer treatments, they should not replace conventional care without first consulting a healthcare provider.
With the release of their latest guide, Alternate Treatments aims to continue its mission of helping their readers and customers make informed decisions about natural alternatives to traditional medicine.
