A study of different complementary therapies in relation to orthodox treatments

I bet you were about 18 months old. You learned, 'nose, mouth, eyes, arm, leg, toes…' As your studies developed you went further and added knees, elbows, shoulders and 'tummy'… and while you may not have yet learned about different types of joints or the digestive organs themselves, you may have realized that limbs move differently and that food and toilet visits were intimately connected! Naming and understanding what the 'bits' are for is useful to us from a young age; and the depth of our understanding naturally reflects both our level of interest as well as our need for applying it. Anatomy has developed as a system with complex names, which may put some people off, yet serves to quickly identify exactly what we are talking about.

Return to top Fish oils: Before the supplement hucksters get too excited, try looking at their report. The report concerns only the question of how to minimise the chances of another heart attack myocardial infarction, MI after you have had one.

One section of the advice among many concerns diet. Patients should be advised to consume at least 7 g of omega 3 fatty acids per week from two to four portions of oily fish. For patients who have had an MI within 3 months and who are not achieving 7 g of omega 3 fatty acids per week, consider providing at least 1 g daily of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment licensed for secondary prevention post MI for up to 4 years.

What Is the Role of Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Public Health?

Initiation of omegaacid ethyl esters supplements is not routinely recommended for patients who have had an MI more than 3 months earlier. Patients should be advised to eat a Mediterranean-style diet more bread, fruit, vegetables and fish; less meat; and replace butter and cheese with products based on vegetable and plant oils.

Later, on page 27, the evidence is assessed. What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment in all patients after an MI? One trial has shown a benefit of treatment with omegaacid ethyl esters in patients within 3 months of an MI.

However, other secondary prevention treatment had not been optimised in this trial and the majority of patients had preserved left ventricular function. There is some uncertainty about how much additional benefit patients after acute MI optimally managed for secondary prevention, including those with left ventricular systolic dysfunction, will obtain from the addition of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment.

There is also a paucity of evidence for the effectiveness of treating patients who have had an MI in the past, at least 3 months earlier. The efficacy of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment in patients both early and later after MI deserves further research.

Journal of American Geriatrics Society, May , 43(5) Orthodox treatments work far better for early stage cancers and do an overall very poor job treating late-stage cancers that have metastasized Unless the cancer or chemotherapy or radiation destroyed one or more vital organs, several alternative treatments work almost equally well whether the cancer is detected in an early stage or in a late stage.

Many of you have probably heard of the ‘alkaline diet’. There are a few different versions of the acid-alkaline theory circulating the internet, but the basic claim is that the foods we eat leave behind an ‘ash’ after they are metabolized, and this ash can be acid or alkaline (alkaline meaning more basic on the pH scale).

According to the theory, it is in our best interest to make sure. 1 Understand complementary therapies that can be used by users of health and social care services 2 Understand the role of complementary therapies in relation to orthodox treatments 3 Understand the role of complementary therapies in maintaining health and wellbeing.

The reasons for dissatisfaction with orthodox treatment deserve further investigation, as does the effectiveness of complementary treatments, which must be demonstrated before they are integrated with orthodox medical practice.
