The Shen Clinic
Complementary & Alternative Medicine
The Shen Clinic specialises in Complementary and Alternative Medicine the definition of which follows: The term Complementary and Alternative Medicine (C.A.M.) refers to any therapy that is not provided by orthodox health practitioners such as doctors, dentists and nurses. The Cochrane Collaboration defines C.A.M. as a broad domaine of healing resources that encompasses all health systems, modalities, practices and their accompanying theories and beliefs, other than those intrinsic to the politically dominant health systems of a particular society or culture in any given historic period. C.A.M. is understood to mean therapies that are presented as an option to conventional or Western medical treatment (orthodox). For example - when cancer patients choose not to have chemotherapy or radiotherapy, and instead follow a special dietary regime.
