Complementary and alternative drugs and treatments (CAM) such as yoga, massage and aromatherapy are a group of medical and health care systems, practices and products that are not presently considered to be a part of conventional medicine. CAM may be used to try to slow disease progression or eliminate the disease altogether, for symptom management, pain relief, or stimulation of the immune system. CAM treatments usually include affectionate care, and often have a spiritual reinforcement.

It is generally recommended if a CAM drug or treatment is to be used, it is in addition to, rather than instead of, western scientific based medicine. This combination is known as "integrative medicine."

NOTE: If existing treatments are not adequate, cutting edge treatments are available through clinical trials. There may also be treatments in use in other countries that may be of interest.
