What is Complementary Medicine
Complementary medicine is a term used to describe therapies or healthcare approaches that are used in addition to, or alongside, conventional care.
Common uses of complementary medicine include improving quality of life for those living with chronic conditions or in palliative care; post-surgical care; and helping anxious patients to complete orthodox treatments and procedures that have unpleasant side effects, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy. People with chronic or life-limiting conditions such as multiple sclerosis, mental health problems (i.e. mild depression and anxiety), weight problems, musculoskeletal problems, or a history of substance misuse (including alcohol and drugs), can be greatly supported using complementary medicine alongside conventional care.
