Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Many Americans use clinical treatments that are not part of mainstream medicine. Complementary medicine is used together with traditional medical care. An example is making use of acupuncture to aid with side effects of cancer therapy. When health treatment providers and centers supply both types of care, it is called integrative medicine. Natural medicine is used as opposed to mainstream treatment. To minimize the wellness risks of a non-mainstream therapy: Discuss it with your physician. Learn what the research claims about it; Choose specialists very carefully; Tell all of your doctors and experts about all of the different types of therapies you use.
