Publication date: March 2016 Source:Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, Volume 7, Issue 1 Author(s): Sharmistha Mallick This paper is an attempt to understand the project of mainstreaming in India's health care system that has started with an aim to bring marginalized and alternative systems of medicine in mainstream.

Homeopathy and cancer
Representatives of the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons comment: Older readers will recall a profession proud to be independent, eclectic, able to explore, expand and develop treatment options available to patients committed to its care. Individuals' experience was valued; indeed much of what we do today is based on the collective experience of the past. Members were fulfilled and graduates mentored into confident colleagues. Oft' forgotten in the EBM debate is that the collective of anecdote is evidence. Then accountants, managers, targets, marketing and disciplinaries for failure to conform appeared...

Attitudes, Knowledge, Use, and Recommendation of Complementary and Alternative Medicine by Health Professionals in Western Mexico
Conclusions We observed a high rate of Mexican health professionals that had ever used CAM, and they had mainly used homeopathy, massage therapy, and herbal medicine. However, the recommendation rate of CAM by Mexican physicians was significantly lower than that in other countries, which is probably due to the lack of CAM training in most Mexican medical schools.

Case report of two siblings with multi- morbidities receiving homeopathic treatment for one year
Conclusion Treatment by a homeopath employing a variety of homeopathic methodologies and medicines over 1 year was associated with improvements in ADHD status, patient generated outcomes, parent reported pathology and reduction in conventional medication. No causal conclusions on treatment efficacy can be derived, nor the effects of homeopathic medicines separated out from the reduction in conventional medicines. More systematic research is warranted to tease out these effects, and should document treatment by homeopaths as experienced in clinical practice to explore therapeutic potential.

Should Nurse Practitioners Prescribe Complementary and Alternative Medicine?
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a large and fast-growing fact of life for nurse practitioners (NPs), particularly the vast majority of us who practice primary care. CAM is a range of therapeutic approaches categorized as follows: whole medical systems (eg, homeopathy, naturopathy, and ayurveda); mind-body techniques (eg, meditation, acupuncture, tai chi, and hypnotherapy); biologically based treatments (eg, herbal remedies and dietary supplements); manipulations (eg, chiropractic and massage); and energy medicine (eg, reiki and qi gong).

Complementary and Alternative Medicine Treatment Options for Otitis Media: A Systematic Review
Abstract: Otitis media (OM) has numerous presentations in children. Together with conventional medical therapies aimed to prevent and/or treat OM, a rising number of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatment options can be offered. Since OM is common in children, parents may ask healthcare professionals about possible CAM therapies. Many physicians feel that their knowledge is limited regarding these therapies, and that they desire some information. Therefore, we conducted a literature review of CAM therapies for OM, taking into account that many of these treatments, their validity and efficacy and have not be...

Integrative management of pediatric tonsillopharyngitis: An international survey.
Abstract This survey investigated the management of pediatric tonsillopharyngitis, with a focus on natural remedies. 138 pediatricians, general practitioners and ear-nose-throat (ENT) specialists in 7 countries were surveyed by a dedicated questionnaire. A rapid strept test (RST) to diagnose acute tonsillopharyngitis was routinely used by 56/138 participants (41%). The use of RST allowed 200 diagnosis/year compared with 125 diagnosis/year for clinicians who did not use this tool. Homeopathy remedies were prescribed as a supportive therapy by 62% of participants (85/138). Among different homeopathic remedies, SilAt...

How to handle worsening of condition during treatment - risk assessment in homeopathic practice.
Authors: Stub T, Salamonsen A, Kristoffersen A, Musial F Abstract Even though homeopathy is regarded as a harmless intervention, homeopathic practice may not be entirely risk-free. Risk in homeopathy can be divided into direct and indirect risk. Direct risk refers to traditional adverse effects of an intervention; indirect risk is related to adverse effects in a treatment context, e.g. the practitioner. Available data suggest that the risk profile of homeopathic remedies in ultra-molecular potencies is minor, but there is a potential for indirect risk related to homeopathic practice. The concept of 'homeopathic agg...

I wanted to see if there was research that could demonstrate the ability to use homeopathy in epidemics/pandemics. If so, what type of research and can it be recognised as valid?

When Lack of Evidence Is Evidence of Lack
Abstract In their recent article “A Gentle Ethical Defence of Homeopathy,” Levy, Gadd, Kerridge, and Komesaroff use the claim that “lack of evidence is not equivalent to evidence of lack” as a component of their ethical defence of homeopathy. In response, this article argues that they cannot use this claim to shore up their ethical arguments. This is because it is false.

Scientism and Pseudoscience: A Philosophical Commentary
Abstract The term “scientism” is used in a variety of ways with both negative and positive connotations. I suggest that some of these uses are inappropriate, as they aim simply at dismissing without argument an approach that a particular author does not like. However, there are legitimate negative uses of the term, which I explore by way of an analogy with the term “pseudoscience.” I discuss these issues by way of a recent specific example provided by a controversy in the field of bioethics concerning the value, or lack thereof, of homeopathy. I then frame the debate about scientism within the broader cont...
