Why the interest in Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies? Why do we value CAM?

Apr 18, 2013 | News

I wanted to share this article because I love the way it describes the history and value of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).

The article comes from…
Desai, V et al. (2013). “Alternative Medicines and Their Applications in Dentistry-A Brief Review.” Int Journal of Pharmaceutical and Chemical Sciences. 2013; 2(2): 542-545

It can be downloaded here.

The article states…

“The history of medicine includes many ludicrous therapies. Nevertheless, ancient wisdom has been the basis of modern medicine and will remain as one important source of future medicine and therapeutics. During the last decades, there is increasing interest to unlock the secrets of ancient herbal remedies”.

This fits the narrative of the history of magnetic therapy perfectly. Practices like that of the physician Anton Mesmer and his theory on animal magnetism were discredited by the French medical establishment. Even Benjamin Franklin was included in the 1784 investigation commissioned by King Louis XVI that discredited Mesmer’s work. The reputation of magnetic therapy suffers even to this day from this episode. But recent research is now unlocking the therapeutics of static magnets and their applications for the treatment of minor pains and minor injuries.

Then…

“Patients are more interested in alternative medicine for many reasons. The two main ones being the high costs and the potential for side-effects”.

The costs of ongoing medication and/or surgery are immense, whether it’s out of pocket expenses borne directly by the patient or the tax payer funded national health system. For many people, the relatively small one off purchase of Q Magnets is a bargain and with little or no side effects, if they work they are a useful alternative. 

Next…

“Unlike mainstream medicine, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) often lacks or has only limited experimental and clinical study; however, scientific investigation of CAM is beginning to address this knowledge gap”.

With the advent of the MRI and new research into static magnets for the treatment of chronic pain and injury recovery, the future of magnetism in medicine is showing significant promise. Much of this magnetic field therapy research is listed here.
