According to Cancer.gov, "complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard medical care." Standard medical care is typically anything that is seen as conventional or traditional medicine as provided by health professionals with a license to practice medicine (M.D. or medical doctor or D.O. (doctor of osteopathy). There are standard medicine practitioners who also practice CAM, as well as holistic practitioners who are medical doctors (M.D.) who treat patients within the principles set forth by holistic medicine. Alternative medicine can be a bit confusing. There are many categories, lots of techniques, and even lots of words in other languages associated with these methods of healing and promoting wellness. And what is alternative medicine an "alternative" to, anyway? Understanding the basics of alternative medicine, as well as knowing about the various techniques and traditions that guide these methods, can help you determine how best to treat your health problems as well as remain healthy and strong.This guide will dispel some myths about alternative medicine, provide you with a basic understanding of the most used alternative techniques, and help you understand all the benefits that you should consider when making health and wellness choices. Let's start with a fundamental problem, which is understanding the difference between the many terms that get thrown around when talking about alternative therapies. 10,000 words on all Alternative Medicine Therapies explains every thing you wondered.

'Alternative Medicine and Wellness Techniques: 14 Paths to Integral Health' (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 3) is a scholarly article that outlines 14 alternative pathways or practices for achieving holistic health. When the author speaks about 'holistic' health, he conveys that these practices and techniques do not only cure the symptoms of a disease but also gradually but definitely remove the underlying cause of the illness. The 14 pathways outlined in the book are Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Kirlian Photography, Kyodo, Naturopathy, Osteopathy, Qigong. Radionics, Reiki, Sophrology, Tai Chi Chuan, Tibetan Medicine and Yoga. Before he discusses the various pathways to holistic health, the author relates to the reader why he wrote this book, namely as a result of large-scale medical abuse and malpractice suffered by himself, his mother, and his wife, over several years. He then also outlines how he found a way out of 'business medicine' into 'real medicine' by relocating to South-East Asia in 1996, where he lives ever since. As Chinese medicine, next to Ayurveda, is not only the oldest of these medical, sportive or meditative practices, the author has put a particular focus upon it, explaining the basic tenets and principles, such as the duality of Yin and Yang, the two complementary energies of every organism, and the theory of the Five Elements. The book comes with illustrations and a complete Bibliography. It is the third volume in a series of Scholarly Articles the author intends to publish in the near future.

Alternative therapies, once the province of the hippie counterculture, are now a mainstream phenomenon. But they are more than a medical and economic sensation. At once spiritual and bodily, medical and recreational, they are an enormously popular cultural practice bound up with the pleasure-seeking drive of consumer culture as well as with spiritual and neo-liberal values. Complementary and Alternative Medicine critically examines this phenomenon - which some denounce as the triumph of superstition over reason - by asking practitioners themselves what makes these therapies so appealing. Drawing on a wealth of interviews with Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practitioners as well as on the author's longstanding participation in CAM culture, the book provides a much needed look from both the inside and the outside of the CAM phenomenon. This book is essential reading for students and scholars of cultural studies, anthropology, sensory studies and sociology.
