Ayurveda – a part of alternate medicine

What is alternate medicine? Alternate medicine is a different branch of treatment that is not recognized as “conventional medical treatment.” In fact, “CAM” or “Complementary and Alternative Medicine” is quite popular in the US. According to a survey (conducted by National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, NCCAM) approximately 36% of adults are under some form of CAM therapy. Combined with meditative therapy, the percentage of CAM users in the US is approximately 53%.

Some of the “CAM” therapies, mentioned in the NIHIS (National Health Interview Survey) 2002, are as follows:

  • Acupuncture
  • Ayurveda
  • Chiropractic
  • Homeopathy
  • Naturopathy
  • Reiki
  • Yoga

For further information on CAM, its use and effects you can browse through https://nccih.nih.gov/research/statistics/2007/camsurvey_fs1.htm
