The term "alternative medicine" or "complementary medicine" is often used to refer to medication, natural supplements and vitamins, and other therapies that are not usually used in the medical "mainstream".
Our goal is to always recommend those treatments and therapies that have been scientifically proven to be safe and beneficial for you. Where any recommended treatment has risks or would only be marginally beneficial you will be advised.
If you prefer to try alternative treatments and therapies, this is your choice. Please always let your doctor know what therapies you are using (even those that are not prescribed) so that he or she has a complete picture of your health.
