  • Shortly before I began research for this book on alternative and complementary medicine, I informed a dear friend of the pending task. His first comment was “How many volumes?” Those three words would haunt me throughout the project. One book hardly scratches the surface; therefore my objectives were to compile up-to-date information on and explanations of as many alternative, complementary, or integrative healing methods as possible and to present them in an unbiased and accessible A-to-Z format.

  • The use of complementary medicine has mushroomed over the last decade. Along with the increased popularity there’s been an increase in the number of practitioners who practise complementary therapies either as their primary discipline or as a ‘complement’ to their own discipline, such as nursing or medicine. With an increasing acceptance by the public and by mainstream healthcare professionals, practitioners of complementary medicine are being asked to provide evidence of the effectiveness and safety of their therapies.

  • Why would one examine in detail complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatments in mental health care in an era when traditional psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological treatments have never been better? There are at least two reasons: one is empirical, the other is theoretical. First, empirical data show that public interest in CAM treatments is growing rapidly, and it is thus incumbent on physicians to follow their patients’ lead and become knowledgeable about these treatments (Spiegel 2000; Spiegel et al. 1998).

  • The initial reason for writing Complementary and Alternative Medicine: An Evidence- Based Approach was the need to examine research evidence and claims purported by advocates, clinicians, and researchers of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) regarding its effectiveness. Both of us had previous experience with certain of these therapies since we had worked with American Indians who used alternative spiritual- indigenous medical approaches to health-related problems. Joseph Jacobs, a Mohawk, grew up using many of these healing practices.

  • Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)1 is now a major part of the healthcare system in all advanced societies.2 It is also a common part of discourse in medicine and healthcare. This growth of interest has only partially been matched by academic study of it. Indeed, over recent years there has been an increasing recognition that CAM is essentially under-researched (House of Lords 2000).

  • In defining a new paradigm it is difficult to know where to begin. How do you take fifteen years of medical practice in pathology and ten years of clinical observation utilizing the theories of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, and therapeutic nutrition and meld them into a model of biological understanding and medical practice? The answer is actually quite simple — start from the beginning and build a convincing model based upon sound physics, physiology, pathology, and clinical medicine and see if the model fits the expected outcome.

At the same time, affluent consumers in the industrialized world are spending their own money on healthcare approaches that fall outside what has been considered mainstream medicine.

  • As health care providers, we spend our lives searching for treatments that reduce suffering and lengthen the lives of our patients. Sometimes we find solutions in surprising places. Although we all have hopes for advancements in technology, the future of medicine is also about challenging preconceptions as we change our healing biases. In many ways, this is the natural evolution of “global medicine.” We have global communications and global banking; however, until recently medicine has remained remarkably provincial.

  • The rise of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) – a whole array of practices, products and approaches to health and illness1 – can certainly no longer be characterised as cultural fad or fashion. Changes in the use of titles (from ‘unscientific’ and ‘marginal’ to ‘complementary’ and ‘integrative’) reflect a more substantive relocation and transformation of many of these medicines from the fringe to the mainstream of both community and professional health-care discourse and practice (Tovey et al. 2004).

  • For 250 years, veterinary medicine and its scientific underpinning, veterinary science, have struggled to gain the confidence and respect of clients, fellow health scientists and practitioners, and the general public. And it has been accomplished by means of the scientific method and strict objectivity. To embrace unproven or even discredited “complementary and alternative” techniques surely is regressive both for patients and for veterinarians.

  • There are a number of excellent books on the market addressing the role of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in nursing, midwifery and physiotherapy (Rankin-Box 2001, Tiran 2000, Charman, 2000) which review, in general, a range of themes relevant to the discipline. As far as possible I have tried to avoid going over the same ground in this· book, however, there will be inevitably some overlap. In addition I have assumed that the reader has a prior level of knowledge covering paediatric, professional and legal issues in nursing.
