Complementary and Alternative Medicine (DAM) is a term used by the National Institute of Health (NIH) to describe this section of medicine. Additional, alternative and complex methods of treatment include treatment with herbs, vitamins, special foods, as well as treatment, including effects on the spiritual world, bioenergy (for example, acupuncture or energy fields), and psychosomatic therapy.
According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), 36% of adult Americans use some form of DAM, and if you include in the definition of DAM prayers for improving health, this figure will increase to 62 % It is important to note that the methods of complementary and alternative medicine (DAM) are used in 25 US medical centers.
The great doctors interacted with the patient on the physical, mental and spiritual levels, using the principles of the ability to listen, cause trust and express sympathy. The introduction of DAM in practical medicine should be based on the principles of compassion for the patient, but on a scientific basis; The main goal of the implementation should be to strengthen the doctor’s interaction with the patient, since human relationships are central to the process of providing medical care.
The physician must establish a trusting relationship with the patient so that, understanding his problems, goals and preferences, he can offer the patient accurate and adequate information about a rational and mutually acceptable treatment plan. Most patients use DAM methods, so it is very important to respect the patient’s perceptions about this and preserve his love, not trying to persuade, even if the doctor does not completely trust these methods.
In addition, since patients believe that many doctors are not interested in DAM methods, i.e. the patient takes what medicinal herbs and biologically active additives (BAA), then the patients do not give this information to the doctor. Ego can lead to the development of heavy allopathic drug interactions with herbs and dietary supplements. In order to avoid such problems, it is extremely important to obtain information from the patient about everything that he uses for treatment.
Effective prevention and treatment of chronic diseases require multi-component therapy combined with lifestyle changes. Since there is currently very little evidence of evidence of melicins regarding the efficacy and safety of nutritional supplements and herbal remedies, the physician must study and record the use of dietary supplements in order to provide the patient with relevant information and follow his preferences.
