Visit the Complementary and Alternative Medicine Center of Excellence in our online Health Library for more information on a wide range of CAM topics.

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) refers to treatment practices and products used in place of or in combination with traditional Western medicine. When combined with traditional medicine, it is sometimes referred to as integrated medicine. These practices often focus on the connection between the mind and body for overall health and for healing and pain relief.
