CAM = complementary and alternative medicine
CAM is a fairly recent term created to describe the ever increasing field of complementary medicine. Complementary describes treatments that are used in conjunction with conventional medicine treatments, and alternative describes treatments used instead of conventional medicine.
Everyone has used CAM at some point in their lives, whether it be a hot lemon drink during the flu, or soaking in a bath when feeling worn out. Some have taken it to the point of attending a health retreat in a foreign country or have stories to share of cancer recovery. CAM is versatile and easy to use. Modern medicine is only just beginning to acknowledge the patient’s need, as well as the actual physical benefits of CAM.
People are wanting to take charge of their own health more and more. And that is one of the reasons why I created this website… to educate the simplicity and effectiveness of simple CAM remedies.
