What is alternative and complementary therapy?

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term used to describe a variety of health care systems and practices which are currently not considered to be part of standard healthcare. Standard healthcare often referred to as 'conventional medicine' is that which is applied by medical doctors and their associated health professionals such as psychologists and registered nurses.

More specifically, complementary medicine is that which is used alongside conventional medicine and is aptly named as it is intended to 'complement' and enhance the standard healthcare treatment an individual is already receiving. For example, acupuncture is often used to ease the unpleasant side effects of breast cancer treatments such as hot flashes, nausea, vomiting and pain and the purpose of the treatment is not to cure the cancer but to improve its side effects.

Contrastingly, alternative medicine is that which is used in the place of conventional medicine and in many cases is used because other methods have proven unsuccessful. Choosing alternative therapy means deciding not to use conventional care and instead involves the sole use of an alternative therapy.

Integrative care is another approach which is often mentioned in the same spectrum as complementary and alternative healthcare. It offers complementary therapies and conventional treatments alongside one another, often delivered by a team of health professionals from both fields. For example in the case of cancer care, individuals may be offered complementary programs such as massage therapy as a way to help patients manage their stress and create an overall sense of well-being.

Definitions aside, no alternative or complementary healthcare practitioner will suggest that individuals cease or refuse standard medical treatment. Instead, what most practitioners are striving for is the development of a working relationship with an individuals doctor with the patients health and well-being as their shared primary goal.

Helping donors and charities to be effective

We are a charity dedicated to getting the best for other charities and their donors. 

For over 80 years, we have found the most effective and efficient ways to connect donors to the causes that matter to them and for money to get where it’s needed.

For charities, we provide not only financial services and advice but also donation processing, freeing them up to concentrate on the real work of making a difference.

Making an impact in the charitable sector is what drives us. That's why we have spearheaded many of the changes that make the UK one of the best giving environments in the world.

We specialise in information and advice about charitable trusts and foundations that fund in the UK. If you're not looking for charitable funding, or you're not based in the UK, this website may not be of much use to you. Also, you can't use this website to do a search for trusts that match your need; you need to use our software somewhere for that.

Some of what we do is aimed at those people looking for funding for an individual. Charitable funding for individuals can be for education (in its widest sense) or because of social need - poverty, disability, ill health etc.
