Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the most common form of inflammatory joint diseases, is a disease of unknown etiology and affects 1% of the population worldwide and generally involves many joints because of the systemic nature of the disease. The diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is primarily based on clinical symptoms, so it is often difficult to diagnose RA in very early stages of the disease. A disease specific autoantibody that could be used as a serological marker would therefore be very useful. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are the first line drugs of choice for the symptomatic treatment of RA. Because of the risks associated with the use of NSAIDs and other limitations, the use of alternative drugs such as corticosteroids, DMARDs and medicinal herbs, is on the rise and according to reports 60-90% of dissatisfied arthritis patients are likely to seek the option of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
CAM or natural healing has been part of public healthcare choices in Ireland from early monastic times, when cures were sought and used for a range of ailments. Natural healing predates biomedicine and has remained a popular choice down through the ages. This has been replicated on a global scale from the beginnings of traditional medicines to current use today of indigenous or folk medicines as healthcare choices. Often described as "alternative" to the more accepted, dominant, scientific biomedical systems used by most countries for their healthcare systems. both the EU and the WHO have sought to map, and recommend protection and recognition of non-dominant traditional medicines. This book is based on research which explores CAM communities across the globe, and uses Ireland as one example of the emergence of a vibrant CAM community. It explores lack of government recognition and inclusion of CAM in healthcare choices in most countries of the world, despite public demand. It discusses the growth of unsupported CAM private training and public service industries across the world, delivering lifelong learning and second chance education, creating employment to meet industry demand.

According to Health Canada, Approximately 20% of individuals will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, and the remaining 80% will be affected by an illness in family members, friends or colleagues. New medications and a more holistic approach to empowering people with mental disorders (consumers) and assisting them in gaining life skills through a collaborative approach has helped alleviate many symptoms. At the same time, many consumers are dissatisfied with conventional treatments and experience adverse side effects from medications. An increasing number are turning to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) to alleviate their internal turmoil. An integrative approach was found to be the most fair and comprehensive method of increasing choices for consumers in their recovery. This book, therefore, provides an overview of all the different types of CAM therapies available and their relative effectiveness for treating mental illnesses. It will be especially useful to consumers, family members, psychiatrists, physicians, social workers, counsellors, therapists, community workers and anyone interested in integrative and alternative healing approaches.
Infection with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) continues to be a significant public health issue in the United States. Allopathic medicine, specifically Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART), has dramatically reduced mortality rates associated with HIV infection. HAART, however, has negative side effects, and some people living with HIV find the side effects a challenging aspect of treating their health issue. As a result, some of those living with HIV turn to Complementary/Alternative Medicine (CAM) to alleviate their symptoms. Since patient navigation of CAM options are fraught with uncertainties, and with the documented decrease in time people spend with a physician in the United States, nurses may play a critical role in determining a patient's choice of care outside or alongside allopathic treatments. Yet knowledge level of CAM, and behavior toward referral, has been less studied among this important group of healthcare professionals.
A term referring to a heterogeneous group of hygienic, diagnostic, and therapeutic philosophies and practices whose principles and techniques diverge from those of modern scientific medicine. Some of these differ from traditional medicine only in preferring natural hygienic and therapeutic methods to drug treatment and surgery, some have roots in ancient or modern philosophical or religious systems, and some are based on what some more clinically oriented critics assert are naive, false, or inconsistent notions of anatomy, physiology, psychology, pathology, and pharmacology. Complementary and alternative medicine, or CAM, is a category of medicine that includes a variety of treatment approaches that fall outside the realm of conventional medicine. An increasing amount of research is being done to establish the safety and efficacy of alternative medicine.
