Interest in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is growing worldwide, even in Vietnam where traditional medicine is considered mainstream. We conducted a survey of the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of CAM therapies among physicians in oriental medicine (OM) hospitals in Vietnam. A two-stage random selection process selected 337 physicians who were interviewed using a face-to-face method with a standardized structured questionnaire. Data from 312 physicians who completed the questionnaire suggested that oriental herbal medicine and acupuncture (Vietnamese OM version) were the more commonly used CAM modalities compared with Vietnamese folk medicine and other forms of CAM...

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease with higher morbidity and mortality among ethnic Chinese patients than Whites. Corticosteroid and other immunosuppressive drugs, including cyclophosphamide, azathioprine, and hydroxychloroquine are traditional therapies for this disease. Since the year 2000, mycophenolate mofetil and rituximab have been widely used in refractory SLE or severe lupus nephritis. Because the high disease activity remains, even after active therapy, and serious side effects from Western medicines may develop, more than 40% of SLE patients in Western countries are pursuing complementary and alternative therapies (CATs)...

METHODS: An observational cohort study in 204 children <12 years was conducted over a 1 week treatment period...

Who was Thomas Henry Storey? Dedicated healer or charlatan? A danger to his patients or hero to the profession? He graduated from the Palmer School and Infirmary of Chiropractic in 1901. One of the largest chiropractic colleges, the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, would be founded by one of his patients in 1910 and incorporated in 1911. He led the founder of chiropractic on his first expedition to Los Angeles. Thomas' seventy-nine year life span took him from Canada through the north central United States to the West Coast from Washington to California and south into Mexico...

Alternative medicine encompasses ancient medical practices of Ayurveda, Unani, Tibbi, chiropractice, acupuncture and others alike. This part of medicine ignores mechanisms of drug action and relies on antique methods and natural remedies. It has no study of pathology, rather depends on philosophy. One must take note of ethno-botany in the evolution of ancient medicines. Ethnobotany reflects the use of drugs available in natural places. Use of natural plants as medicine by the animals is very interesting to observe...

Although chiropractic is used by approximately 10 percent of the U.S. population, predictors of its use have not been definitively described. Previous studies have suggested that chiropractic users differ from nonusers in a number of sociodemographic characteristics, but their findings are inconsistent, perhaps because of differences in populations sampled and dates of data collection, most of which are prior to 1990. Regional studies have been conducted in rural areas based on the premise that rural residents are more likely than non-rural residents to use chiropractice; however, this premise has not been definitively documented...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the rationale for and necessity of adjusting the film focal distance when X-ray angulation is employed during a radiographic study, and to determine the sensitivity of human interpreters to overall differences in film density and the correlation, if any, with digital analysis of radiographic films. DESIGN AND SETTING: The study was performed in the radiology department at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri. A standard X-ray phantom of the hand and wrist and several aluminum step wedges were exposed from 10% to 250% of baseline exposure intensity using equipment commonly found in a field doctor's practice...

The aim of this study was to compare and contrast the views of general practitioners (GPs), hospital doctors and medical students to alternative medicine. A questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 100 GPs and 100 hospital doctors in the South West Thames Regional Health Authority (SWTRHA). A convenience sample of 237 pre-clinical medical students at St George's Hospital Medical School was also given a questionnaire. Eighty-seven GPs and 81 hospital doctors replied. Five therapies were investigated: acupuncture; chiropractice; homeopathy; naturopathy; and osteopathy...

In Muscatine, Iowa, a medically underserved rural area, a cohort study of health care utilization was made before and after a significant increase in medical manpower. There was a slight increase, rather than a decrease, in the use of chiropractic services associated with the growth in the physician manpower pool. The level of access to physician services was not a significant predictor of chiropractice utilization.
