Complementary and Alternative Medicine - What You Need To Know
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard care. Standard care is what medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy, and allied health professionals, such as nurses and physical therapists, practice. Complementary medicine is used together with standard medical care. An example is using acupuncture to help with side effects of cancer treatment. Alternative medicine is used in place of standard medical care. An example is treating heart disease with chelation therapy (which seeks to remove excess metals from the blood) instead of using a standard approach. The claims that CAM treatment providers make can sound promising. However, researchers do not know how safe many CAM treatments are or how well they work. Studies are underway to determine the safety and usefulness of many CAM practices. To minimize the health risks of a CAM treatment Discuss it with your doctor. It might have side effects or interact with other medicines Find out what the research says about it Choose CAM practitioners carefully Tell all of your doctors and practitioners which CAM and standard treatments you use NIH: National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine

We shouldn’t use labels like “Alternative” and “Conventional” Medicine
What is alternative medicine? Does alternative medicine work? The University of Toronto recently stirred up a bit of controversy by uncritically offering a class on "Alternative Medicine." When people looked at the coursework, which included many studies debunked by this channel, some people started to freak out. The issue highlights a much larger problem: No one is sure how best to teach that subject. The dichotomy, however, between alternative and traditional medicine, or between Eastern and Western medicine, is a false one. We would be much better off if we could reframe the issue. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This episode was based on a post I wrote for the Upshot.

TEDxTerryTalks - Ratib Islam - Alternative Medicine: Challenging the Language of Insulation
Ratib Islam provides a measured look at the rhetoric of alternative medicines, and explores its lack of distinction between evidence based and non evidence based claims. Ratib is a 6th year B.Sc. student, majoring in biochemistry with a minor in philosophy. He became interested in alternative medicine in 2009 when naturopaths were recognized as physicians and doctors, capable of prescribing drugs previously restricted to physicians with MDs. As a result, he co-founded a club, with two medical students and a medical graduate student, called UBC Students for Science Based Medicine to educate the public about alternative medicine from a critical approach. There aim is not to debunk or offer medical advice, but to educate and empower consumers by translating otherwise inaccessible information and obscure concepts. This is largely due to the risks of relying on unsubstantiated therapies and the lack of people engaged in this kind of service. Club website: http:/www.sbmubc.org November 5th, 2011.

Introduction to Herbal Medicine - Lesson 1
Follow me on Instagram; https://www.instagram.com/the.mental.health.herbalist/ Subscribe here http://bit.ly/1M2vCOs Introduction to Herbal Medicine Welcome to this four part online course on herbal medicine. I hope you enjoy the course and learn about the power of herbal medicine for your health and wellbeing. In this first lesson we will explore What is herbal medicine? What is a herb? Is there evidence to support herbal medicine? How does herbal medicine work? Are herbal medicines safe? Why use herbal medicine? What is herbal medicine? Herbal medicine is the practice of using medicinal plants for their health benefits. Herbal medicine has been used worldwide throughout history. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimated that 80 percent of the world’s population use herbs and natural remedies for their primary health-care needs. There are thousands of plant throughout the world have medicinal uses. Many of them are also used in medicine to make pharmaceutical drugs. What is a herb? The word herb implies different things to different people, and definitions varying according to area of interest and personal bias. A herb is a plant with medicinal benefits. Depending on the herb, the medicinal benefit can be derived from the aerial parts, the leaves and stem, the seed, the flower or the root. A herb can also be described as a drug, as it is a substance that can have a physiological effect when ingested into the body. Is there evidence to support herbal medicine? Yes there is evidence to support herbal medicine. There are three sources of evidence for the use of herbal medicine for their health benefits. First is tradition Thousands of years of traditional herbal medicine provides us with the longest clinical trial in history to demonstrate the effectiveness of many herbal medicines. These herbs would not have been used if they were of no benefit to our health. Second is clinical practice Practicing herbalists have a wealth of knowledge from their clinical practice with patients that supports the effectiveness of different herbs for different conditions. and Thirdly from Evidence based research There is a growing body of evidence from research and clinical trials that supports the effectiveness of herbal medicine. So how does herbal medicine work? Medicinal herbs are packed with nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc., that are essential for good health and well being. Besides their content of important nutrients, plants also synthesise secondary metabolites, for example alkaloids and volatiles, that have disease-preventive properties. Herbs are also high in antioxidants, which act to repair and protect cells from oxidative stress which has been linked to heart disease, liver problems, arthritis, premature skin ageing, and eye damage. Herbal medicine can also be used to support the nervous system. Another powerful way that herbs can reinforce our health is by strengthening the immune system, which is arguably our best defense against pathogens that lead to illness. Herbal medicine can also be used to improve digestion. Digestion is involved in transforming food into nutrients. If you cant transform your food into the nutrients that the body needs, our health will suffer. Most chronic diseases begin with poor digestion. Are herbal medicines safe and effective? Most commonly used herbs are safe to use. But some plants can produce side effects and, like all medicines, herbal remedies must be treated with respect. Why use herbal medicine? Herbal medicine is increasing in popularity in recent years and there are many reasons for this growing interest in herbal medicine. Firstly there is there is the rising cost of prescription medicine. About me The Mental Health Herbalist is a holistic channel on YouTube, dedicated to teaching you about herbs and herbal medicine. Like Hippocrates, I believe food is medicine and can heal and prevent all sorts of illnesses. Caution Remember always consult with a doctor if you have an illness and consult with an herbalist if you want to go on a course of herbs. These videos are for information purposes only. If you taking medications consult with a medical doctor. If you want to take a course of herbs I recommend you talk to a herbalist. If you want more information contact me by email.

Cupping Therapy: Alternative Medicine for Pain, Immunity & Digestion
Relatively unknown to most people living in the West until recently, cupping therapy is an alternative therapeutic method that has been popular in China since around 1000 B.C. Some records show that variations of cupping practices might actually be much older. Cupping therapy has a host of health benefits that can often outweigh modern medicine techniques. One of the biggest advantages to trying alternative practices like cupping therapy, acupuncture or massage therapy is that these methods don’t pose the risk for unwanted side effects like pharmacological drugs or surgery do. In fact, there’s really no downside to trying alternative practices like cupping, since studies show they can help boost immune function and speed up healing time without the use of any medications or even herbs.

Fairy Tale Science and Placebo Medicine - Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)
http://facebook.com/ScienceReason ... Harriet Hall with her talk "Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM): Fairy Tale Science and Placebo Medicine", World Skeptics Congress 2012 in Berlin. Introduction by Willem Betz. --- More videos of the World Skeptics Congress will be uploaded to the following channels: • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/RationalHumanism • http://www.youtube.com/WissensMagazin Please don't forget to subscribe! Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL602E2CD13B5D203C --- Harriet Hall, MD, aka "The SkepDoc," is a retired family physician and former Air Force flight surgeon who writes prolifically about science, critical thinking, alternative medicine, and quackery. She is a CSI fellow, a contributing editor to both Skeptic and Skeptical Inquirer magazines, an editor of the Science-Based Medicine blog, an adviser to the Quackwatch website, a founding fellow of the Institute for Science in Medicine, and is on the editorial review board of the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. --- Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an artificial category covering a wide variety of treatments that are dubious, untested, or inadequately tested. Medicine that has been proven to work is just "medicine" -- not CAM. Science is the only reliable way to find out if a treatment really works, and proponents of CAM have recognized the need for scientific studies to support their claims. Unfortunately, good science requires more than just getting positive results from a controlled study. When therapies based on fantasy are studied with the tools of science, it produces confusing noise. Studying how much money the Tooth Fairy leaves under the pillow doesn't prove she exists. Pragmatic studies give an unfair advantage to treatments that have no specific effects but are dressed up like Cinderella with non-specific effects. Energy medicine modalities like Therapeutic Touch are a bit like the Emperor's New Clothes: they have impressed adults with apparently supporting studies; but a 9 year old child, Emily Rosa, pointed out their nakedness with a simple experiment showing that practitioners were deceiving themselves. Meta-analyses and systematic reviews are often flawed, especially when applied to improbable modalities. When science shows that a CAM treatment works no better than placebo, some CAM advocates accept the results but argue that we should use the treatment anyway, because placebos make patients feel better. This constitutes a double standard, because we wouldn't accept that argument for prescription drugs. Prescribing placebos is unethical, and placebo use can lead to harm in several different ways. There is only one science, and it must be rigorously applied to determine the effectiveness and safety of any treatment, whether alternative or mainstream. Recent emphasis on evidence-based medicine (EBM) is encouraging, but in practice EBM tends not to give enough consideration to basic science and prior probability. We need truly science-based medicine to determine whether CAM treatments really work. --- World Skeptics Congress: Promoting Science and Critical Thinking in a World of Uncertainty. Why do people turn to pseudoscience for help? What makes alternative medicine so attractive - and how can we find out what really works? Why is it so difficult for us to deal with risk and uncertainty in a rational way? Can we teach children to think critically and scientifically? And how can academic disciplines like biology or psychology protect themselves from pseudoscientific contamination? The 6th World Skeptics Congress in Berlin was an intellectually stimulating three-day event dealing with paranormal and supernatural claims, fringe science issues, and scams. Major topics at this event were science and pseudoscience in education, in particular anti-evolution claims and origin myths, and the problems of risk and benefit assessment, especially in alternative medicine. Gerd Antes, Wim Betz, Johan Braeckman, Edzard Ernst, Chris French, Luigi Garlaschelli, Harriet Hall, Ray Hyman, Chris Mooney, Simon Perry, Massimo Polidoro, James Randi, Gita Sahgal, Eugenie Scott, Simon Singh, Samantha Stein, Kylie Sturgess, Rebecca Watson and Tomasz Witkowski are just some of the world-renowned presenters who took part, taking apart the claims and conspiracies of the modern world. • http://www.worldskeptics.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/worldskepticscongress2012 • http://www.gwup.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/gwup.org --- Tags: complementary alternative placebo medicine cam fairy tale science treatments studies harriet hall homeopathy pseudoscience education skeptical rational critical thinking skepticism world skeptics congress 2012 berlin .

How Alternative Medicine Has Infiltrated U.S. Medical Schools - Steven Salzberg
Presented by the National Capital Area Skeptics - www.ncas.org. Alternative medicine has become very popular over the past two decades, thanks to relentless promotion by the media, politicians, and a few highly visible celebrity doctors. Since the early 1990s, the NIH has spent over $2 billion studying complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), but has yet to show that any "alternative" treatment is effective. Part of this funding has been dedicated to establishing training programs in U.S. medical schools. Through these programs, doctors-to-be today learn about treatments based on acupuncture and homeopathy that are little more than magical thinking. In the middle of an intensive training program, most medical students do not have time and are not encouraged to question these practices. These same academic medical centers that host these training programs also offer CAM therapies to unsuspecting patients. This talk reviews some of the CAM topics now taught and practiced at major U.S. medical schools, and will discuss some of the conditions for which these CAM methods are used, including chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders, and cancer. It will also cover the largely unscientific basis of these methods, and explain why proponents have succeeded in convincing both doc tors and patients that CAM is "worth a try" for many disorders. Steven Salzberg is an expert on genomics and DNA sequencing whose lab has developed many of the methods used to decode and analyze genomes over the past two decades. He participated in the Human Genome Project and dozens of other genome projects for many plant, animal, and bacterial species He co-founded the Influenza Genome Sequencing Project and helped to decode the bacteria used in the 2001 anthrax attacks. He is currently Professor of Medicine, Biostatistics, and Computer Science and Director of the Center for Computational Biology in the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. He holds undergraduate and Masters degrees from Yale University and a Ph.D. in computer science from Harvard University. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the International Society for Computational Biology. He writes a widely-read column on science and pseudoscience for Forbes magazine, at forbes.com/sites/stevensalzberg, which received the 2012 Balles Prize in Critical Thinking from the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.

Prince Charles 'sells snake oil' – Edzard Ernst on alternative medicine 'dangerous' to NHS
Watch the full episode here: http://bit.ly/GU178 Edzard Ernst, expert on evidence based analysis of alternative medicine and author of ‘A Scientist in Wonderland’, talks to Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi about the efficacies of such treatments, and whether recent government suggestions that they should be integrated into the NHS are such a good idea. He gave up a professorship in Vienna to move to Britain to study the subject because alternative medicine is a 'paradise for any researcher' because there are so many unanswered questions. He saw miraculous cures effected by homeopathy such as people getting out of wheelchairs, and says you have to question if it is down to homeopathy or to the placebo effect. The challenge with studying this is creating a placebo alternative to the real thing, and his solutions included actors portraying psychic healing and needles that did not pierce the skin for acupuncture. His study showed actors were actually better than healers at stopping pain, but many said he should not publish that because it would deprive pain sufferers of the placebo effect they gain from the treatment. He argues 'you can only make progress in medicine if you tell the truth,' saying that whilst the placebo effect may alleviate suffering, it does not save lives. He says it is a 'fallacy' that because something has been around for centuries it must work, citing bloodletting as an example that killed millions. He says that chiropractic treatment is 'just as wacky' as homeopathy, and the proof it works just as poor. He says the risks come from people genuinely using it as an alternative to serious conditions like cancer, where alternative medicine goes from being harmless to 'life-threatening.' In the present Ebola outbreak a team of homeopaths went to Liberia to cure the outbreak, and he says if they are 'so deluded' to think they can achieve that, 'one wonders what they do to their patients in everyday practice.' He describes David Treddinick, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare and an advocate for alternative medicine including homeopathy and astrology, as 'really dangerous' and on a mission to integrate homeopathy and other treatments into the NHS. He had a complaint lodged with his vice-chancellor by Prince Charles' private secretary, alleging he broke confidence on a document about the economical effects of integrating alternative medicine in the NHS by critiquing it as 'irresponsibly misguided.' He says the Prince is a 'snake oil salesman' for selling Duchy Originals Detox Tincture, and believes that it is 'crazily naïve' to believe that detox products work, describing them as 'bogus... also dangerous' as it leads to people thinking they can overindulge, take the tincture, and everything will be fine, which is not true.

Using Only Alternative Medicine Linked To Lower Cancer Survival
Yale University researchers warn in a new study alternative therapies as the treatment for curable cancers are at a significantly higher risk of death. The study found that patients who choose alternative therapy solely to treat cancer are at a much higher risk of death than patients treated with conventional therapies. The team at Yale studied the outcomes of 840 patients diagnosed with breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancer from 2004 to 2013, 280 of whom received alternative medicine instead of chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation. The remaining 560 patients received conventional treatment for their cancers. When comparing outcomes, the researchers found a higher risk of death among patients treated with alternative medicine only. https://www.upi.com/Health_News/2017/08/10/Alternative-medicine-only-treatment-linked-to-lower-cancer-survival/4151502386800/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Homeopathy - Debunked
Please be sure to check out GMS' wonderful content! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG1uayRlzz3ahT8ISRdyw7Q/featured This, is homeopathy – Debunked. So let’s start by explaining exactly what homeopathy is. Put simply, it’s an alternative medicine (do you know what they call alternative medicine that works? Medicine), that asserts that “illnesses can be treated with minute doses of substances that in large doses would produce symptoms of the illness. Or as the creator of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann put it ‘like cures like'. For example, Aconitum is an extremely poisonous plant that causes (among other symptoms) nausea, headaches and diarrhoea, and so homeopathic advocates assert that because influenza causes the same symptoms, a homeopathic remedy for influenza can be made from Aconitum. So with that said, you might be wondering, “How exactly is homeopathic ‘medicine’ made?” Well, to create a homeopathic remedy for influenza, for example, a homeopathic ‘technician’ grinds Aconitum into a very coarse grain, mixes it with either water, alcohol or a combination of the two, and then thoroughly shakes the solution. From here, the ‘technician’ then mixes one part of this solution with ten parts water, alcohol or a combination of the two, and then puts it through a process called ‘succession’, which is a deliberately verbose way of saying ‘it’s shaken’. And finally, this process (which is called ‘potentization’) is repeated until the solution is as diluted as desired, which is normally 30 times, which, to put this into perspective, means that you’d need to drink 8,000 gallons of the final solution to ingest one molecule of the original solution – (which is more liquid than the average person drinks in twenty years!). Anyhow, there’s just a taste of the content within the video :) And here’s the links to the research that I reference within the video. 1.

After the Storm - Complementary and Alternative Medicine
http://facebook.com/ScienceReason ... World Skeptics Congress 2012 (Award Session): Edzard Ernst, the world's first professor of complementary medicine, with his talk "After the Storm". Edzard Ernst also receives the CSI "In Praise of Reason Award". Introduction by Ray Hyman. More videos of the World Skeptics Congress will be uploaded to the following channels: • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/RationalHumanism • http://www.youtube.com/WissensMagazin Please don't forget to subscribe! Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL602E2CD13B5D203C --- Edzard Ernst is an academic physician and researcher specializing in the study of complementary and alternative medicine. Ernst was appointed Professor of Complementary Medicine at the University of Exeter, the first such academic position in the world. Edzard Ernst served as chairman of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) at the University of Vienna, but left this position in 1993 to set up the department of Complementary Medicine at the University of Exeter in England. He became director of complementary medicine of the Peninsula Medical School (PMS) in 2002. Ernst was the first occupant of the Laing chair in Complementary Medicine, retiring in 2011. He was born and trained in Germany, where he began his medical career at a homeopathic hospital in Munich, and since 1999 has been a British citizen. Edzard Ernst is the editor-in-chief of two medical journals: Perfusion and Focus on Alternative and Complementary Therapies. Ernst's writing appeared in a regular column in The Guardian, where he reviewed news stories about complementary medicine from an evidence-based medicine perspective.[3] Since his research began on alternative modalities, Ernst has become "the scourge of alternative medicine" for publishing critical research that exposes methods that lack documentation of efficacy. Prof. Ernst qualified as a physician in Germany in 1978 where he also completed his M.D. and Ph.D. theses. he has received training in acupuncture, autogenic training, herbalism, homoeopathy, massage therapy and spinal manipulation. Edzard Ernst never formally registered as a homeopath, despite training as a homeopath and beginning his medical career at a homeopathic hospital in Munich. In 1988, he became Professor in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) at Hannover Medical School and in 1990 Head of the PMR Department at the University of Vienna. Edzard Ernst is a member of the Medicines Commission of the British Medicines Control Agency (now part of the MHRA) which determines which substances may be introduced and promoted as medicine. He also sits on the Scientific Committee on Herbal Medicinal Products of the Irish Medicines Board. He is an external examiner for several university medical schools in several countries. Edzard Ernst is a Founding Member and on the Board of the Institute for Science in Medicine, formed in 2009. In February 2011 Ernst was elected as a Fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. His written works include "Trick or Treatment? Alternative Medicine on Trial" (with Simon Singh). • http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edzard_Ernst --- World Skeptics Congress: Promoting Science and Critical Thinking in a World of Uncertainty. Why do people turn to pseudoscience for help? What makes alternative medicine so attractive - and how can we find out what really works? Why is it so difficult for us to deal with risk and uncertainty in a rational way? Can we teach children to think critically and scientifically? And how can academic disciplines like biology or psychology protect themselves from pseudoscientific contamination? The 6th World Skeptics Congress in Berlin was an intellectually stimulating three-day event dealing with paranormal and supernatural claims, fringe science issues, and scams. Major topics at this event were science and pseudoscience in education, in particular anti-evolution claims and origin myths, and the problems of risk and benefit assessment, especially in alternative medicine. Gerd Antes, Wim Betz, Johan Braeckman, Edzard Ernst, Chris French, Luigi Garlaschelli, Harriet Hall, Ray Hyman, Chris Mooney, Simon Perry, Massimo Polidoro, James Randi, Gita Sahgal, Eugenie Scott, Simon Singh, Samantha Stein, Kylie Sturgess, Rebecca Watson and Tomasz Witkowski are just some of the world-renowned presenters who took part, taking apart the claims and conspiracies of the modern world. • http://www.worldskeptics.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/worldskepticscongress2012 • http://www.gwup.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/gwup.org .

Alternative Therapies for Chronic Pain | Kaiser Permanente
One-hundred million Americans suffer from chronic pain every year, and many of them turn to alternative therapies for relief.  In fact, a new study shows that more than half of patients with chronic pain enrolled in a managed care setting use chiropractic care or acupuncture. As Mary Sawyers reports, the study also finds that many of these patients don’t discuss this care with their primary care providers. For more information, visit http://www.kp.org
