CAM Treatments Among Adults
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

With the issues involving homeopathy last year, there are questions as to what would Complementary, Alternative and Integrative medicine (CAM) become as one of its most respected practices currently ridiculed in a review and revision of its regulation by FDA in US.

CAM experts, on the other hand are not entirely troubled to the tight and strict policies against them as, they have stated, “US is not the only country using CAM. The problem with us people is when it is news in the US; we immediately treat it as global issue. When an argument was incited between homeopaths and allopaths (conventional medicine) causing a riot in Menteng, Indonesia, the world didn’t care even if Jakarta post has reported casualties”.

Indeed, CAM practice has continuously been flourishing in many countries as adults continue to patronize it and even take it as an immediate treatment.

Complementary and alternative medicines are mostly popular among women aged 18 – 55 and those who are middle and high incomers, as told by The Peterson Group, one of the leading source of information on CAM. In many cities, the use of CAM is higher than 50% of the population. In Asian regions, acupuncture leads the list of most popular of CAM treatment while China holds the biggest user of different treatments. This is not as surprising, of course, as Asia is the origin of most of its practices.

According to reviews, definition of CAM has been altered with the passing of time, causing a lot of misconception. In a sense, CAM is explained as a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not generally considered part of conventional medicine. Complementary medicine is used together with conventional medicine, and alternative medicine is used in place of conventional medicine. Integrative medicine combines conventional and CAM treatments for which there is evidence of safety and effectiveness.

Many critics still believe that CAM is fraud as it does not comply with the rules and scientific methods that conventional medicine follows. Psychologists even conclude that the usual habits of old people prevent them from believing the facts and complaints against the real existence of complementary, alternative and integrative.

Whether there is truth or none on CAM, a lot of people are still continuously patronizing its effectiveness, even when western countries would not. Much to the disagreement of conventional physicians and doctors, the future of CAM in other parts of the world shows no signs of stopping even when US has revised their regulation.
