Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM)

Complementary and alternative medicine, also known as CAM, is often used by a growing number of American families in pursuit of health and well-being. Examples of CAM include homeopathic natural relief, probiotics, dietary supplements, acupuncture, meditation, and yoga.

  • Complementary medicine, such as a natural remedy, is used together with a traditional medicine. For example, natural ear drops are administered in addition to a prescription medicine to help relieve certain ear problems.
  • Alternative medicine, such as a natural remedy, is used in place of a traditional medicine. For example, natural ear drops may be administered to help temporarily relieve ear symptoms instead of a prescription or over-the-counter medicine.
