Haute MD Expert Dr. Vineet Sandhu dives into what CAM entails and his recommended methods. Here is what he had to say:

There are five categories of complementary and alternative medicines (CAM) that are used in the holistic space, which include alternative medical systems, mind-body interventions, biologically-based treatments (BBT), manipulative and body-based methods, and energy therapies. The one we will focus on due to its popularity and importance to CAM is biologically-based treatments.

According to the National Center for CAM, biological-based therapies (BBT) "includes specialized diets, herbal products, and other natural products such as minerals, hormones, and biologicals." Just recently, Vitamin D and Omega 3 FA were published to decrease autoimmune diseases in addition to their other impactful properties on bone health and lipids.

I also recommend daily turmeric for arthritis. Zinc and magnesium are important as well. If you are experiencing awful migraines, magnesium can help alleviate those symptoms. These are just a few to name proving the extensiveness of the holistic space.
