Complementary and alternative medicine (cam) approach is to holisitically treat the patient using lifestyle, alternative therapies, nutrition, as well as supplements and or herbs.
The emphasis is on bringing balance rather than just treating a problem. Combining this with traditional medicine can lead to longer lasting and more effective outcomes.
