Complimentary and Alternative Medicine
What is Complementary and Alternative Medicine?
Complementary and alternative medicine aim to cure the human body of illness and disease through methods that do not include prescription drugs, invasive procedures or other 'traditional' medical practices. Acupuncturists, herbalists, chiropractors, aromatherapists, naturopaths, reflexologists and other professionals all consider themselves to practice alternative medicine. Many colleges, universities and more specialized alternative medicine institutes offer degree and career certification programs for students interested in all varieties of complementary and alternative medicine.
