Complementary Medicine



Complementary Medicine Diploma

Complementary Medicine is a broad domain of numerous diagnostic and therapeutic disciplines that are used in conjunction with mainstream medical care. Complementary medicine generally exists beyond the scope of medical institutions where traditional healthcare is taught and provided. Complementary medicine encompasses various health systems, modalities and practices along with their philosophies and theories.  The practices and beliefs defined by the users of such health systems on preventing and curing diseases are also a part of complementary medicine. Complementary medicine is often referred to as complementary therapies. Complementary medicine includes popular health systems like Acupressure, Acupuncture, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, Ayurveda and Yoga. The term complementary medicine is often considered synonymous with ‘Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Nonetheless, a distinction can be made between the two. Complementary medicine can be seen as healthcare practices used along with conventional healthcare whereas alternative medicine acts as a substitute for conventional healthcare.

Complementary medicine has maintained its popularity despite being considered as unconventional medicine and the lack of adequate scientific evidence of its working. The reason is that many people have had powerful healing experiences that they claim cannot be denied just because of the lack of notable support from the scientific community. Complementary medicine is also believed to lessen a patient’s discomfort during the course of traditional treatment. For instance, acupuncture has proven to reduce a patient’s discomfort after surgery.Complementary Medicine Diploma is an introductory course in complementary medicine that covers a huge range of conventional therapies with essential information on each therapy.
