We encounter patients after they have explored various avenues of self-help. At times, these avenues involve the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Our readings this week are very helpful.
Select a common (or not so common) illness or condition that affects a specific ethnic group.
Identify two (2) CAM therapies that patients are likely to try before seeking (or in addition to) allopathic, osteopathic, or ayurvedic medical intervention for the illness or condition.
Discuss the effectiveness of each therapy you identified.
Please answer each question separately. Each question must be 250-300 words each. Please be plagiarism free.
