The BCMA is great news for professional practitioners, ethical knowledge and patients who demand expect excellence in every aspect of treatment.
In addition, BCMA is totally to representing "the professional face of complementary medicine" and promoting medical research, education and knowledge in the field. BCMA will help to stimulate demand for the medicine. BCMA work closely with the conventional medical profession as we ultimately believe that the most important person after all, is the patient and believe that by presenting the patient with good care, accurate information about complementary medical approaches they can make responsible informed decisions about health care. It is important to remember that both complementary and conventional medicine have a great deal appropriately, justifiably and responsibly. Ultimately, the freedom to choose one's own health care is absolutely necessary human right which must be protected.
