Complementary and alternative medicineComplementary and alternative medicine, as dened by the US National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine NCCAM , is a group of diverse medical and healthcare systems, practices and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine. These systems of medicine are all characterised by the fact that they involve holistic practice that is, the procedures are individualised according to each patients circumstances. This means that medicines or procedures appropriate for one patient might be totally inappropriate for another even though the symptoms may be similar.

Conversely, the same medicine may be used to treat very different conditions in different patients. A distinction can be made between complementary and alternative therapies, which include those manipulative interventions that generally rely on procedures alone for example, chiropractic and reexology , and complementary and alternative medicine for example, aromatherapy, herbalism and homeopathy , which is associated with the use of medicines or remedies as they are often called.
However, the terms are often used interchangeably, as in this book. The denition of homeopathyHomeopathy is a complementary and alternative therapy the use of which is based on the Law of Similars and involves the administration of ultradilute medicines prepared according to methods specied in the various ofcial national homeopathic pharmacopoeias see Chapter 2 , with the aim of stimulating the bodys capacity to heal itself.
However, it is not the UKs most popular complementary and alternative therapy by total market value, and it is possible that herbal and perhaps aromatherapy products will be fully reimbursable under the NHS in the foreseeable future.
The practice of homeopathy has changed little in the last years or so in the way its medicines have been used. In direct contrast to orthodox medicine, relatively few new medicines have joined the modern homeopaths armamentarium in recent years. The history of homeopathyChristian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann was born just before midnight on 10 April in Meissen, the ancient town renowned for its porcelain and situated on the banks of the River Elbe, about miles south of Berlin.
He qualied as a physician at the Frederick Alexander University in Erlangen in In , Hahnemann translated and annotated a materia medica written by the eminent Scottish physician William Cullen Hahnemann disagreed with Cullens suggestion that the mechanism of action of cinchona bark in the treatment of marsh fever malaria was due to its astringent properties. Because he knew of the existence of several astringents more powerful than cinchona that were not effective in marsh fever, he decided to test the drug by taking relatively large doses himself.
He found that the resulting toxic effects were very similar to the symptoms experienced by patients suffering from the disease. Hahnemann then tried a number of other active substances on himself, his family and volunteers to obtain evidence to substantiate his ndings. In each case he found that the medicines could bring on the symptoms of the diseases for which they were being used as a treatment.
Thus he systematically built up considerable circumstantial evidence for the existence of a Law of Similars see below based on the concept of like to treat like. He called the systematic procedure of testing substances on healthy human beings, in order to elucidate the symptoms reecting the use of the medicine, a proving. In Hahnemann published his most famous work, the Organon of the Rational Art of Healing commonly simply referred to as The Organon. The subject matter in the sixth edition was set out in numbered sections or aphorisms, usually denoted in the literature by the symbol and the relevant section number.
