Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard medical care. CAM therapies need to be evaluated with the same long and careful research process used to evaluate standard treatments.
Mind-body medicine uses a variety of techniques designed to enhance the mind’s capacity to affect bodily function and symptoms.
Other mind-body techniques are still considered CAM, including meditation, prayer, mental healing, and therapies that use creative outlets such as art, music, or dance.
Biologically based therapies in CAM use substances found in nature, such as herbs, foods, and vitamins.
Some examples include dietary supplements, 3 herbal products, and the use of other so-called natural but as yet scientifically unproven therapies
