  • This is an exciting and timely book. It describes how nurses are pioneering complementary therapies within the medical system to give comfort and healing to their patients. It is 40 years since I graduated from general nursing training at Prince Henry’s Hospital Melbourne with deep disappointment about the medical model of 1960. Perhaps my greatest concern was that nurses had insufficient opportunity and resources to give true caring to their patients.

  • 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.

  • This book was written to provide accurate and helpful information about complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) to people with multiple sclerosis (MS). The term CAM refers broadly to medical approaches, such as acupuncture or herbal medicine, that are not typical components of conventional medicine. Despite the fact that the majority of people with MS appear to use CAM, it may be difficult to find reliable information about the relevance and usefulness of these therapies in MS.

  • 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).

  • A Compendium of Essays on Alternative Therapy is a web based resource, encompassing some of the modalities of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), such as homeopathy, herbalism, tai chi, cupping, and Feldenkrais method. While this e-resource deals with only a few of the popular CAM modalities, it is hoped that this will promote further insight, research, and exchange of ideas on the state of CAM modalities within the CAM community, CAM practitioners, conventional clinicians, and general scientists .

  • Complementary and alternative medical (CAM) therapies encompass a broad spectrum of practices and beliefs (1). From an historical standpoint, they may be defined “... as practices that are not accepted as correct, proper, or appropriate or are not in conformity with the beliefs or standards of the dominant group of medical practitioners in a society” (2). From a functional standpoint, complementary (a.k.a.”alternative”) therapies may be defined as interventions neither taught widely in medical schools nor generally available in hospitals...

  • 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.

  • With hospitals, private clinics, and individual practices establishing complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) programs, guidelines and standards need to be established. It is important to note here that these guidelines, which will present consistency and create a basis for quality, are not created to protect the public from itself or from “quacks” who seek to take advantage of incurable disease states. First, there will always be those who seek to take advantage of people regardless of any guidelines, standards, or licensing laws.

  • The veterinary profession has made major diagnostic and therapeutic advances in the treatment of infectious and degenerative diseases. The incidence of chronic disease and cancer, however, has increased at alarming rates and is diagnosed at younger ages, even in puppies and kittens. Perhaps it is this rising incidence of degenerative diseases that has spawned an insatiable search by professionals, scientists, and animal guardians for alternative therapies.

  • Most of the people I meet in my work perceive themselves as not capable of much. Some don’t even particularly like themselves. I know how they feel. As a young man I felt the same, and it nearly destroyed me before I acquired the confidence to become a teacher, therapist and organiser of personal development and complementary therapy courses.
