Many Roads to Health

In March, the Weekend Post, CairnsEye reporter, Claudia Liebenberg wrote a feature article on complementary medicine and its place in modern healthcare titled Many Roads to Health.

NICM's Professor Alan Bensoussan is featured throughout the piece, and provides insight and comment about the strong regulative system for complementary medicine in Australia under the TGA; how complementary medicine works in collaboration with conventional medicine and integrative care; and advice for people wishing to purse complementary medicine, such as talking with your GP and using evidence-based complementary medicine.

The feature also discusses NICM's clinical trials and pre-clinical research and how NICM "is currently working to provide hard science to many wellness approaches" – referencing herbal medicines, nutritional supplements, acupuncture, and mind body therapies such as yoga.
