Complementary and alternative medicine for Gastroenterology

With increase in number of patients and practitioners using CAM modalities, the number of studies on the application of CAM for treatment of GI disorders has been increased. As conventional medical therapies either may not produce satisfactory results or may have side effects, many patients also seek complementary and alternative medicine. Furthermore, patients will prefer additional CAM therapies to improve health-related quality of life through holistic concepts. In the USA, it has been reported around 51% of the patients with GI tract disorders have tried some form of CAM , whereas, in the UK about 26% of the patients with GI tract symptoms and 48% of the patients with irritable bowel syndrome has  been noted to use CAM .
