• Complementary and alternative medicine as defined
by NCCAM, is a group of diverse medical and health
care systems, practices, and products that are not
presently considered to be part of conventional
medicine
• The name „complementary medicine‟ developed as
the two systems began to be used alongside (to
complement)each other.
Complementary medicine is used together with
conventional medicine.
Example using aromatherapy to help lessen a
patient‟s discomfort following surgery.

Alternative medicine is used in place of
conventional medicine.
Example using a special diet to treat cancer instead
of undergoing surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy
that has been recommended by a conventional
doctor.

such as enzymes, organ tissues, and metabolites.
• Dietary supplements come in many forms, including
extracts, concentrates, tablets, capsules, gel caps,
liquids, and powders. They have special requirements
