Measures to take:
These ideas will be able to help you work with your physician if you decide to use Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM):
Tell your doctor about any alternative treatments you are using or contemplating, including chiropractic care, exercise, massage, acupuncture, herbal and essential oils, minerals and vitamins, and special diets.
Do not assume your doctor will react negatively. Many health care providers recognize the effectiveness of alternative strategies, even though they do not always suggest them. Many might be able to recommend acupuncturist or massage therapist and work with other complementary therapists. Insurance companies may pay for some CAM treatments. Some health insurance companies cover treatments, such as chiropractic, exercise, massage, acupuncture, if it is prescribed by your provider.
Tell your physician if you plan is to use an alternative medicine treatment. Determine if your Doctor has reservations about the CAM treatment. There may be a conflict with prescription medication you are currently taking.
You and your health care provider may have to work together on the alternate treatment. It is your duty, as well as your health care provider to study advantages and the dangers of a specific remedy.
You may have to seek a Naturopathic Physician who will work with you and your Primary Doctor as a team.
