COURSE OVERVIEWWelcome to Elements of Complementary Alternative Medicine, HE370, or Elements of CAM, anintroductory course designed to present the wide variety of non-allopathic, or non-traditional, medicalpractices used for generations for disease management and prevention. This section, HE370 – 01,Elements of CAM as De-Stressors, teaches the student how to integrate the elements of CAM into theirlives in order to deal with stress effectively. This goal is accomplished by going beyond the lecture andhosting carefully chosen contemplative exercises to teach students how to perform on their own in order

Life’s Challenges and Pressures relationships, money, health issues, people, deadlines, traffic, the news? Please answer: What can you control? What can you not control?There is normalcy to stress: survival; the “fight or flight” response is necessary to get us as faraway from danger as possible. Stress hormones deplete once all signs of danger are gone, as the
ELEMENTS OF CAM: SYLLABUS, LECTURE NOTES, STUDENT HANDOUTS 3“body’s physiological response mechanisms are superbly adapted for dealing with such short-term physical emergencies.” (Sapolsky, 1998, p. 6). However, when they remain, lingeringstress hormones exact physical damage, which is why perpetual stress, always being stressed,takes a physical toll on the body; it is the continual presence of blood stress hormones . Thistoll is articulated as “heart disease, anxiety disorders, high blood pressure, coronary arterydisease, cancer, respiratory disorders, accidental injuries, cirrhosis of the liver, and attemptedsuicide, all of which are leading causes of death in the United States.” (Keegan, 2003).You are not here, however, to learn how to counter the effects of stress on the body – and whatdoes CAM have to do with it? How can CAM de-stress?CAM is effective as a de-stressor because, as a collection of therapies employed to serve theperson in all aspects of humanity: spirit, body, and mind, there exists the increased possibility ofbeing able to treat the individual holistically, many times with no side effects.In the words of Elliott Dacher, medical doctor turned holistic healer and author of IntegralHealing: The Path to Human Flourishing,“The key to the next quantum leap in health andhealing will emerge from the development of our inner life and our consciousness… to integratethe methods and practices…we must be willing to refocus our energy, attention, and efforts onexploring the still uncharted frontier of the human mind and its healing capacities.” (Dacher,2006, p. 15).The mind-body connection is critical to healing and well-being: it is never enough to just treatthe body, the mind must also be treated, hence, the integration of CAM as lifestyle responses toprevention and management of illness and disease. - What is CAM? Complementary medicine is used together with conventional medicine. An example of a complementary therapy is using aromatherapy to help lessen a patients discomfort following surgery. Alternative medicine is used in place of conventional medicine. An example of an alternative therapy is using a special diet to treat cancer instead of undergoing surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy that has been recommended by a conventional doctor. (National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 2007) - The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, or NCCAM, a component of the National Institutes of Health, is the Federal Governments lead agency for scientific research on CAM. - NCCAMs mission is to explore complementary and alternative healing practices in the context of rigorous science, train CAM researchers, and disseminate authoritative information to the public and professionals.
ELEMENTS OF CAM: SYLLABUS, LECTURE NOTES, STUDENT HANDOUTS 4 - NCCAM groups CAM practices into four domains, recognizing there can be some overlap. In addition, NCCAM studies CAM whole medical systems, which cut across all domains. (Ibid). Whole Medical Systems Whole medical systems are built upon complete systems of theory and practice. Often, these systems have evolved apart from and earlier than the conventional medical approach used in the United States. Examples of whole medical systems that have developed in Western cultures include homeopathic medicine and naturopathic medicine. Examples of systems that have developed in non- Western cultures include Traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. Mind-Body Medicine Mind-body medicine uses a variety of techniques designed to enhance the minds capacity to affect bodily function and symptoms. Some techniques that were considered CAM in the past have become mainstream (for example, patient support groups and cognitive- behavioral therapy). Other mind-body techniques are still considered CAM, including meditation, prayer, mental healing, and therapies that use creative outlets such as art, music, or dance. Biologically Based Practices Biologically based practices in CAM use substances found in nature, such as herbs, foods, and vitamins. Some examples include dietary supplements, herbal products, and the use of other so-called natural but as yet scientifically unproven therapies (for example, using shark cartilage to treat cancer). Manipulative and Body-Based Practices Manipulative and body-based practices in CAM are based on manipulation and/or movement of one or more parts of the body. Some examples include chiropractic or osteopathic manipulation, and massage. Energy Medicine Energy therapies involve the use of energy fields. They are of two types:
ELEMENTS OF CAM: SYLLABUS, LECTURE NOTES, STUDENT HANDOUTS 5 Biofield therapies are intended to affect energy fields that purportedly surround and penetrate the human body. The existence of such fields has not yet been scientifically proven. Some forms of energy therapy manipulate biofields by applying pressure and/or manipulating the body by placing the hands in, or through, these fields. Examples include Qi gong, Reiki, and Therapeutic Touch. Bioelectromagnetic-based therapies involve the unconventional use of electromagnetic fields, such as pulsed fields, magnetic fields, or alternating-current or direct-current fields. - How Can You De-Stress with CAM? - There are many CAM techniques that can be applied to lowering the stress(es) in, or de-stressing, your life. Some are: - Deep-Breathing (Mind-Body Medicine) - Deep Tissue Massages (Manipulative & Body-Based) - Meditation/Prayer (Mind-Body Medicine) - Talking (Mind-Body Medicine) - Listening to “White Noises,” e.g., the ocean, rain, wind (Mind- Body Medicine) - Painting/Sculpting/Quilting/Cooking (Mind-Body Medicine) - Dancing (Mind-Body Medicine) - Exercising“Increasingly, CAM therapies are being integrated with conventional medicine. According to theAmerican Hospital Associations Annual Survey of Hospitals, the percentage of hospitalsoffering CAM has increased from 7.9 percent in 1998 to 19.8 percent in 2006 (Ananth 2009;Henkel 2010). The widespread and growing consumer demand for CAM in the U.S. led Wyattand Post-White (2005) to write that conventional “health care must now catch up with consumerpractices to provide guidance in the safe and effective use” of CAM.” (Pamela Jo Johnson,2012).“In recent years, integrative medical-research clinics have been springing up all around thecountry, 42 of them at major academic medical institutions including Harvard, Yale, Duke, theUniversity of California at San Francisco, and the Mayo Clinic. Most appear to be backedenthusiastically by administrators and many physicians.” (Freedman, The Triumph of New-AgeMedicine, 2011)CAM is a reminder that we are more than health challenges, issues, medical or clinicalconditions, etc., but people experiencing them; CAM keeps us in touch with ourselves, which, Ibelieve, lends itself to arriving at healing more quickly than depending solely onpharmaceuticals alone. Our minds MUSAT be involved in our healing

CAM as a De-Stressor“Increasingly, CAM therapies are being integrated with conventional medicine. According to theAmerican Hospital Associations Annual Survey of Hospitals, the percentage of hospitalsoffering CAM has increased from 7.9 percent in 1998 to 19.8 percent in 2006 (Ananth 2009;Henkel 2010).

Breathe deeply. Take your time to interact with your food: look at your food on the plate, take in all the colors, the scents, the warmth of the just-cooked food, pick up your fork and begin eating. Chew slowly: taste the foods, feel the textures, continue chewing slowly, taking time to break food down before swallowing. Swallow. Feel the food go down your esophagus. Pause. Close your eyes, breathing deeply. You have just fed and nourished your body, spirit, and your mind. Repeat the process.II. Week #2 - CAM and Your Body A. Exercise – De-stress with Movement B. Howley and Franks Quote 1. “High fitness in one area enhances the other areas, and conversely, lower fitness in any area restricts the accomplishments possible in other areas…physical activity plays a major role in the physical dimension, it also contributes to learning, relationships, and a sense of our [humanity in the larger scheme of life.] An optimal quality of life requires individuals to strive, grow, and develop, though they may never achieve the highest level of fitness. The totally fit person nevertheless continually strives for the highest quality of life possible. ” (Howley, 2007, p. 6). C. The Centers for Disease Control, or CDC Recommendations:Age Group, yrs.

CAM DEFINITIONSAcupuncture ("AK-yoo-pungk-cher") is a method of healing developed in China at least 2,000years ago. Today, acupuncture describes a family of procedures involving stimulation ofanatomical points on the body by a variety of techniques. American practices of acupunctureincorporate medical traditions from China, Japan, Korea, and other countries. The acupuncturetechnique that has been most studied scientifically involves penetrating the skin with thin, solid,metallic needles that are manipulated by the hands or by electrical stimulation.Aromatherapy ("ah-roam-uh-THER-ah-py") involves the use of essential oils (extracts oressences) from flowers, herbs, and trees to promote health and well-being.
ELEMENTS OF CAM: SYLLABUS, LECTURE NOTES, STUDENT HANDOUTS 10Ayurveda ("ah-yur-VAY-dah") is a CAM whole medical system that has been practicedprimarily in the Indian subcontinent for 5,000 years. Ayurveda includes diet and herbal remediesand emphasizes the use of body, mind, and spirit in disease prevention and treatment.Chiropractic ("kie-roh-PRAC-tic") is a CAM whole medical system. It focuses on therelationship between bodily structure (primarily that of the spine) and function, and how thatrelationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. Chiropractors use manipulativetherapy as an integral treatment tool.Dietary supplements. Congress defined the term "dietary supplement" in the DietarySupplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994. A dietary supplement is a product(other than tobacco) taken by mouth that contains a "dietary ingredient" intended to supplementthe diet. Dietary ingredients may include vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanicals, aminoacids, and substances such as enzymes, organ tissues, and metabolites. Dietary supplementscome in many forms, including extracts, concentrates, tablets, capsules, gel caps, liquids, andpowders. They have special requirements for labeling. Under DSHEA, dietary supplements areconsidered foods, not drugs.Electromagnetic fields (EMFs, also called electric and magnetic fields) are invisible lines offorce that surround all electrical devices. The Earth also produces EMFs; electric fields areproduced when there is thunderstorm activity, and magnetic fields are believed to be producedby electric currents flowing at the Earths core.Homeopathic ("home-ee-oh-PATH-ic") medicine is a CAM whole medical system. Inhomeopathic medicine, there is a belief that "like cures like," meaning that small, highly dilutedquantities of medicinal substances are given to cure symptoms, when the same substances givenat higher or more concentrated doses would actually cause those symptoms.Massage ("muh-SAHJ") therapists manipulate muscle and connective tissue to enhance functionof those tissues and promote relaxation and well-being.Naturopathic ("nay-chur-o-PATH-ic") medicine, or naturopathy, is a CAM whole medicalsystem. Naturopathic medicine proposes that there is a healing power in the body thatestablishes, maintains, and restores health. Practitioners work with the patient with a goal ofsupporting this power, through treatments such as nutrition and lifestyle counseling, dietarysupplements, medicinal plants, exercise, homeopathy, and treatments from traditional Chinesemedicine.Osteopathic ("ahs-tee-oh-PATH-ic") medicine is a form of conventional medicine that, in part,emphasizes diseases arising in the musculoskeletal system. There is an underlying belief that allof the bodys systems work together, and disturbances in one system may affect functionelsewhere in the body. Some osteopathic physicians practice osteopathic manipulation, a full-body system of hands-on techniques to alleviate pain, restore function, and promote health andwell-being.Qi gong ("chee-GUNG") is a component of traditional Chinese medicine that combinesmovement, meditation, and regulation of breathing to enhance the flow of qi (an ancient term
ELEMENTS OF CAM: SYLLABUS, LECTURE NOTES, STUDENT HANDOUTS 11given to what is believed to be vital energy) in the body, improve blood circulation, and enhanceimmune function.Reiki ("RAY-kee") is a Japanese word representing Universal Life Energy. Reiki is based on thebelief that when spiritual energy is channeled through a Reiki practitioner, the patients spirit ishealed, which in turn heals the physical body.Therapeutic Touch is derived from an ancient technique called laying-on of hands. It is basedon the premise that it is the healing force of the therapist that affects the patients recovery;healing is promoted when the bodys energies are in balance; and, by passing their hands over thepatient, healers can identify energy imbalances.Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the current name for an ancient system of health carefrom China. TCM is based on a concept of balanced qi (pronounced "chee"), or vital energy, thatis believed to flow throughout the body. Qi is proposed to regulate a persons spiritual,emotional, mental, and physical balance and to be influenced by the opposing forces of yin(negative energy) and yang (positive energy). Disease is proposed to result from the flow of qibeing disrupted and yin and yang becoming imbalanced. Among the components of TCM areherbal and nutritional therapy, restorative physical exercises, meditation, acupuncture, andremedial massage. 3.
