1) WHAT ARE ALTERNATIVE , COMPLEMENTARY AND INTEGRATIVE HEALTH APPROCHES
By Jessica Migala
of Americans say they use alternative health approaches, also known as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
And if you’ve ever attended a yoga class, taken a breath to destress, or received a massage, you can count yourself as someone who’s tested out this approach. Here’s a look at what these terms mean, their potential benefits, and how to find the right practitioner for you.
Alternative and Complementary vs. Integrative Health Approaches
The terms “alternative,” “complementary,” and “integrative health” are often conflated, but they have different meanings. “Alternative therapies are used to describe health and medical treatments that rely on the body’s innate healing power,” says Tabatha Parker, ND, the director of education at the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine in La Jolla, California. “Such therapies, which are rooted in global healing traditions, are designed to promote health, prevent
illness, and raise awareness of disease conditions without the use of conventional medications and interventions.”
Though there are many therapies that fit into this category
when used in isolation from conventional medicine, a few examples are acupuncture with a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, traditionally and culturally used herbs and supplements, and energy practices like reiki.
As for how alternative and complementary therapies differ, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) notes that if one of these nonmainstream therapies is used together with conventional Western medicine, it’s complementary.
If used in place of conventional medicine, it’s considered alternative.
Previously, the common terminology was “complementary and alternative medicine,” and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other academic groups have shifted toward the use of “integrative” and “complementary
health” approaches and therapies instead.
Parker considers “integrative health” a more modern terminology. “[It’s] inclusive of all providers and healing traditions that integrate science with holistic approaches,” she says. Integrative medicine focuses on treating the whole person with coordinated care across various conventional and complementary medicine providers.
Are Alternative and Complementary Approaches Safe?
Generally, yes, when they are provided by a trained practitioner, but it’s critical to see a licensed and certified professional. These qualifications vary by state and type of practitioner.
Before making an appointment with a provider, the NCCIH recommends understanding what your state requires in terms of certifications or licensing and using that as a guide when speaking to a professional about their education, training, and qualifications. They should also be willing to work with your
primary care provider.
That said, there is a difference in safety depending on what therapy you’re using, says Susan Gaylord, PhD, a research associate professor and the director of the Program on Integrative Medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill. For instance, it’s unlikely you can harm yourself by practicing mindfulness, but other approaches, such as taking supplements or herbs, could be harmful if not done under the guidance of a licensed practitioner. Some, like trying a detox or cleanse, can be dangerous.
“To be safe, it’s best if you can coordinate your care with a doctor who is trained in conventional medicine techniques and is also very knowledgeable about other therapies, or works with someone who is,” Dr. Gaylord says. It’s important to have a primary care provider or internal medicine doctor who can aid in diagnosis and watch for things like side effects and medication interactions. Remember
that “natural” doesn’t always equal safe or free of harm, which is why it’s so important to see someone who carries the required certifications or licenses in your state.
Complementary and Alternative Therapies by Type
Whether you’re looking to massage or mindfulness, chiropractic or herbals, a range of complementary and alternative therapies may be supportive of your health goals, depending on the healing approach you’re interested in and what your doctor recommends. According to the NIH’s government data, the most popular complementary therapies are yoga, meditation, and chiropractic care.
Women are also more likely to seek out these treatments compared with men.
~ Practitioners generally break the relatively large category of complementary and alternative health approaches into four types:
~ Nutritional Herbs and supplements, therapeutic diets,
prebiotics, and probiotics
~ Psychological Meditation, hypnosis and guided imagery, and relaxation therapies, such as breathing exercises
~ Physical Acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, reflexology, and Pilates
~ Combinations Also known as mind-body therapies, such as yoga, tai chi, qi gong, dance, music and art therapy, mindful eating, and mindfulness-based stress reduction
There are also alternative medicine or healing systems, such as traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, homeopathy, and naturopathic medicine, which are “systems and beliefs that evolved over time in different cultures and parts of the world,” notes the National Cancer Institute. These approaches use various therapies that can fall under and are used in both conventional and complementary and alternative ways.
Some therapies, such as acupuncture, have a body of research behind them
and are becoming more a part of conventional medicine. Others do not. “Many of these practices don’t have the standard of research that we often come to expect from conventional medicine,” says Mary Guerrera, MD, a professor and the director of integrative medicine in the department of family medicine at the University Connecticut School of Medicine in Mansfield. Some of this is due to funding, she says. Other reasons, according to research, include a lack of well-qualified complementary and alternative medicine researchers, negative bias about this type of research, and reluctance from those in the complementary and alternative space to conduct mainstream research.
However, that doesn’t mean they’re not effective.
Each therapy has its own set of potential benefits versus risks, like every conventional therapy and medicine. For example, according to Parker, “meditation or acupuncture can help patients better manage their symptoms and
improve their quality of life by reducing fatigue, pain, and anxiety.” By using therapies that “support the body’s healing,” she says, people may have fewer side effects.
If you’re interested in complementary and alternative health approaches, speak with your primary care physician about your goals for treatment or general well-being, and the therapies that you’d like to incorporate into your care. They can talk to you about the benefits (or help you research these) or refer you to someone who can (like a board-certified integrative medicine practitioner).
To ensure the safety of whatever therapy you choose to pursue, make sure to consult your primary care physician first. Then find certified and licensed practitioners in the treatment you choose.
You may find that an integrative approach tailored to your health needs and challenges can help you stay well and
help treat existing conditions. “Integrative health brings together conventional and complementary medicine. It’s the best of both worlds,” says Dr. Guerrera.
The word to remember with integrative health approaches is “inclusive,” says Guerrera. Traditionally, we may have thought about medicine as only the practice of seeing your doctor. However, an integrative approach brings together doctors, nurses, pharmacists, as well as complementary and alternative medicine practitioners in their various specialties to collaborate on the approaches to health and healing that might be right for an individual patient, she says.
Incorporating conventional and holistically informed integrative approaches have been found to improve symptoms, cope with a disease, reduce anxiety, improve sleep, and increase involvement in one’s care.
patients report that they’re more satisfied with this whole-body approach.
People who have chronic or complex medical conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, infertility, joint pain, multiple sclerosis, anxiety or depression, and insomnia, among others, may benefit most from an integrative medicine approach.
Finding a CAM or Integrative Health Practitioner
Thanks to a growing interest in CAM and integrative health, led first by The Bravewell Collaborative in the early 2000s, more hospitals have opened up integrative or complementary medicine centers. That’s great news for you: “This means the hospital has done the work of vetting the credentials of the practitioners who are there,” says Guerrera.
Another option is asking your primary care provider for a referral, though they may not be able to confidently recommend someone if it’s an area in which they have limited knowledge or experience.
Sometimes, your health insurance may cover some of these providers and services, so be sure to check.
Outside of a hospital setting, many practitioners have independent practices, and there are also integrative medicine clinics. This will require investigation on your part, as the term “integrative” is often used loosely and not necessarily referring to the type of evidence-informed integrative healthcare philosophies referred to in this article. You can find those clinics in your area with an internet search, but you’ll also want to look into their credentials on your own.
The NCCIH recommends inquiring about practioners' education, training, licensing, and certifications. When inquiring about an initial appointment, ask if they are willing to work with your primary care provider in coordinating your care, suggests Guerrera.
Parker notes that a good resource is the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine’s Find a
The University of Arizona’s Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine also has a directory to find trained integrative healthcare practitioners who have gone through its programs, as well as another directory to find a certified integrative health or wellness coach.
Tips for Consulting Your Conventional Doctor About Complementary Therapies
Research shows that people using complementary medicine may be reluctant to tell their conventional medicine doctor, fearing a negative response or that the disclosure will threaten their relationship.
However, as the authors of that study point out, not being upfront with your doctor about the therapies you’re using could be harmful for your health. (For instance, perhaps you’re using an herb or supplement that would interact with your medication.)
“Having a dialogue with your doctor about this is key,” says Guerrera. “Research
shows that patients want their doctor to talk to them about this, but it’s not easy to move this movement of holistic, integrative, whole-person care into mainstream medicine.” All that is to say: You may have to bring it up on your own. Guerrera suggests opening the conversation with something like “I’m curious: What do you think about XYZ treatment?” Or “I’m interested in XYZ because of this reason. What can you tell me about it or do you know anyone who practices it?”

2) 6 HERBS WITH IMPRESSIVE ANTYVIRAL ACTIVITY
By Tiffany Chaney
The human virome is made up of an estimated 380 trillion viruses, some of which harm the body and others that may
benefit the body by coexisting within it. As much as half the stuff in your body, such as viruses and bacteria, may not be your own biological matter. From birth, viral infections serve an important part in human disease and survival.
A 2006 workshop at the National Institutes of Health analyzed the impact of globalization on infectious disease emergence. It notes that plague epidemics in colonial African cities were closely tied to the advent of the steamship and increased travel and trade. Similarly, we live in a fast-paced technological age with a high population density with shifting commodities, food and capital moving across political borders. Pathogens can easily hitch global rides, as evidenced by the spread of the coronavirus.
Can our immune systems keep up with the speed with which we live our lives? Recent viral outbreaks following the advent of globalization and modern travel also means that we must shift our attention to newer ways
of safeguarding public health. Sometimes, that means returning to older ways. Here are six impressive herbs with antiviral activity to include in your diet and home remedies.
Sage is a part of the mint family and often used in traditional medicine to treat viral infections. A 2014 review published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine discusses the therapeutic potential of the sage species which may provide natural solutions for the relief or cure of life-threatening diseases like dementia, lupus, heart disease and cancer. Sage also can be used to treat common illnesses.
Aqueous extracts from sage, peppermint and lemon balm present significant anti-HIV-1 activity by raising the virion density, according to 2008 findings published in Springer Nature’s Retrovirology. HIV-1 was severely impaired once treated with Lamiaceae extracts (from the mint plant family).
The antiviral activity of sage is linked with safficinolide and sage one which are found in the stem and leaves of the plant, according to a 2017 analysis of the pharmacological properties of sage. These findings were published in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine.
Oregano is also a plant with antiviral properties, thanks to the chemical compound carvacrol that belongs to the mint family. Both oregano oil and carvacrol decreased the activity of murine norovirus (MNV) within 15 minutes of exposure to the virus. MNV is extremely contagious and a main cause of stomach flu. These results were published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology in 2014.
Oregano oil and carvacrol also reveal antiviral activity when it comes to the herpes simplex virus type-1 (HSV-1), respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and rotavirus. The findings were published in the Brazilian Journal of
Microbiology in 2011.
Fennel is a member of the carrot family that tastes like licorice. Studies show it demonstrates antiviral activity against certain viruses.
A 2014 test-tube study revealed that fennel extract presents potent antiviral activity against parainfluenza type 3 (PI-3) and herpes viruses. PI-3 contributes to respiratory infections in cattle. The findings were published in Biomedical Research International.
Fennel essential oil contains the chemical constituent trans-anethole, which also presents antiviral effects against herpes, according to an article published in Evidenced-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2011.
The Korean Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology reports animal research conducted in 2015 demonstrates the potential of fennel to decrease inflammation and boost the immune system, thereby fighting off viral infections.
Garlic is a member of the Allium family and related to shallots, chives, leeks and onions. It’s a popular remedy for many conditions, such as viral infections.
An older study published in the International Journal of Dermatology analyzed the efficacy of garlic extract applied to warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) twice daily. All 23 participants found that their warts were eliminated in just one to two weeks.
A review on the therapeutic effects of garlic conducted in 2014 suggests that garlic presents antiviral activity against viral pneumonia, influenza A and B, HIV, HSV-1 and rhinovirus. The results were published in Avicenna Journal of Phytomedicine.
Garlic also contains anti-inflammatory compounds that stimulate an immune system response which could protect the body against viral infections, according to findings published in the Journal of Immunology Research. However,
these results were based on animal and test-tube studies, not human trials.
5. Lemon Balm
Lemon balm is a part of the mint family known for its lemony zest and taste. It’s commonly used in dressings, seasonings and teas. It also contains potent medicinal qualities, including plant compounds that benefit the body through antiviral activity. These compounds have shown efficacy against the influenza A virus, according to 2016 findings published in Virusdisease.
Additionally, test-tube studies have revealed the antiviral activity of lemon balm against herpes, HIV-1, enterovirus 71 and bird flu. These results were published in the Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry in 2021.
Particular varieties of basil, especially holy and sweet basil, could effectively combat viral infections.
Holy basil is also commonly known as tulsi and may improve
immune response to viral infections, inhibiting the interaction between SARS-CoV-2 Spike S1 and ACE2. The compound eugenol is responsible for augmenting the immune system in this study, according to findings published in the 2021 Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology.
Sweet basil extracts, that include the compounds ursolic acid and apigenin, have been shown to exhibit powerful antiviral effects against hepatitis B, herpes and enterovirus. These results were reported in an older comparative study published in Clinical and Experimental Pharmacology & Physiology.
A clinical four-week study found that those who supplemented with 300 milligrams of tulsi extract experienced raised levels of natural killer and helper T cells. These are immune cells that defend the body against viral infections. The systematic review was published in 2017 in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Much progress has been made in drug
development and immunization, but antiviral therapies that match the pace of human evolution are lacking in our fast-paced global society. The discovery and development of novel antiviral drugs, especially from natural herbal sources, is a vital next step in pharmacology.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise, we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
3) THE INCREDIBLE REISHI: MUSHROOM OF SPIRITUAL POTENCY
By Justin Faerman
For over 2,000 years, the Reishi mushroom (Latin: Ganoderma Lucidium Chinese: Lingzhi) has been revered as one of the most sought-after and powerful tonics in the Traditional Chinese Medicine
pharmacopeia, making it one of the oldest mushrooms known to have been used therapeutically.
After reading some of the more poetic and enthusiastic descriptions of this extremely rare mushroom (it’s been harvested to the point of near extinction at times) that have accumulated over the centuries, one might get the impression that Reishi is nothing short of a proverbial fountain of youth; but looking past the hyperbole there is an impressive and growing body of scientific research validating and substantiating many of these legendary claims. Despite its lack of mainstream awareness in the United States and other Western countries, Reishi is the most well-studied herbal medicine on the planet.
In fact, so much research has been done verifying the borderline miraculous medicinal properties of Reishi, that many Asian (particularly Chinese and Japanese) doctors use it alongside or in place of established pharmaceutical medicines as a first line of
treatment in their clinical practice battling notoriously difficult auto-immune diseases such as Cancer , AIDS and Hepatitis, among others . These days it is most well-known in medical circles for its powerful anti-tumor, anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and general immune-stimulating properties—but that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what this mushroom is capable of.
The Health Benefits of the Mushroom of Spiritual Potency: Life Extension, Deep Relaxation and Physical Rejuvenation
While Reishi was recognized as being particularly beneficial for the sick and ill in ancient Chinese medical texts, it was perhaps better known as belonging to a special class of medicines known as ‘tonic herbs’. These are substances considered so foundational and important to overall health, vitality, and quality of life that they are encouraged to be taken daily for their numerous benefits, sick or not. Of the 50 or so tonic herbs recognized in Traditional
Chinese Medicine, Reishi is considered to be one of the most sacred, earning it fantastic-sounding names like the Mushroom of Immortality and Mushroom of Spiritual Potency.
This is likely because many revered Taoists and monks have long claimed that Reishi is a powerful ‘Shen tonic,’ which translates loosely to an herb that ‘nourishes the spirit’. While this is a claim that cannot directly be verified by science, Reishi has consistently demonstrated the ability to profoundly relax the nervous system, calm the mind and induce a state of relaxed focus, for which it has long been valued by spiritual seekers, meditators and those looking to relieve the stresses of daily life.
When Reishi was first discovered in the Changbai Mountains in Ancient China around 396 BC, it quickly became known as a powerful anti-aging substance and this was one of its earliest known uses—as a special tonic for emperors seeking immortality. And while many may be quick to
dismiss such tales as fanciful folklore, cutting-edge research is now proving that there may be far more to these claims than previously thought.
According to recent studies published in Neuropharmacology, Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry and The FASEB Journal [8, 9, 10], Reishi has demonstrated measurable antioxidant and life-extending properties, as well as the ability to stimulate activity in brain neurons by increasing Nerve Growth Factor levels in cells.
Reishi mushrooms, like most adaptogenic herbs, also supports and balances the endocrine and hormonal systems in the body, which are likely related to its spiritually activating properties. Hormones are the ‘molecules of consciousness’—powerful biopeptides that control mood, perception, sleep-wake cycles, bonding and connection and our awareness of reality. Reishi’s effects on the hormonal system is legendary. Its gentle yet powerful, working to balance the body’s many glands and organs
steadily overtime, which makes it ideal for daily use.
Reishi mushrooms also strengthen the liver, which aids in the detoxification of harmful toxins and heavy metals from the body and can help greatly with allergies be it to foods or environmental pollens and pollutants. In Chinese Medicine, the liver is also responsible in large part for our mood and so taking a quality Reishi supplement daily also helps to promote a positive outlook and reduce depression and anger, which are emotions associated with the liver in TCM theory.
Types, Quality and Usage Guidelines For Reishi
The incredible popularity of Reishi in Asia, along with the increasing interest in the United States and Europe, has led to a large swath of mushroom growers jumping on board to capitalize on the growing demand, not all of them with quality and potency foremost in mind. These tend to vary widely between suppliers and it is important to keep an
eye out for markers of integrity when choosing a Reishi product. According to Ron Teeguarden, one of the world’s foremost experts on Chinese herbal medicine, red and purple varieties of Reishi, although harder to find, are generally superior to other types. He notes that most products on the market are made from the inferior black Reishi mushrooms, therefore it is important to look for products using the previously mentioned strains.
As would be expected, organically grown Reishi supplements are usually of good-to-excellent quality, but also be on the lookout for wild harvested/crafted products. Wild harvesting is just what it sounds like—harvesting wild-growing mushrooms—and wildcrafting is similar, except that the mushrooms are intentionally planted in their natural habitat instead of growing spontaneously. These are frequently some of the best-quality Reishi mushrooms available and are believed to have the most ‘Shen’ of the various types on the market.
Most doctors and researchers use what is called ‘Duanwood Reishi’—referring to the type of wood that the mushrooms are grown on—known particularly for enhancing its immune-stimulating properties and overall potency and quality. Grown without chemicals in pristine mountain environments, Duanwood Reishi is typically superior to most other products and naturally organic due to the strict methods under which it is grown, although not always certified as such.
The Reishi mushroom has truly stood the test of time and the scrutiny of high level scientific research, which is rare in the world of herbs and clearly a testament to the widely experienced benefits it offers to those seeking greater health and wellness.
As with any new herbal product, it is recommended to start off slowly and work up to higher dosages as you become familiar with its effects on your mind and body. Reishi is safe to take long term and doing so is necessary to
realize the full benefits it offers.
