Non-conventional approaches, also known as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) are growing in popularity as more and more people associate natural products and therapies to offer some kind of a health benefit. People who frequently use CAM therapies see a potential upside and believe that these, so called “natural approaches” are beneficial and can cause no harm. Sadly, this is not always the case. Many of the CAM therapies that are freely available through the click of a button, lack sufficient evidence, are potentially unsafe, can interact with other commonly used medications, or may not have any scientific evidence of efficacy. Having said that, there are many CAM therapies that are beneficial and safe to use.
Therefore, to educate consumers, IControlMyHealth scientific team, in collaboration with leading clinicians and thought leaders has developed a proprietary methodology to rate these CAM approaches. Therefore, you take a sigh of relief and decide (after discussion with your health care provider) whether to use or not use a non-conventional approach.
