Complementary or Alternative Therapies can be a great help, and many thousands of people swear by them.   However, they are not regulated in the same way that the more conventional treatments are.  This may lead to great claims being made, without necessarily having the supporting evidence of research or clinical trials.

You should be particularly careful if you are considering the use of ingested substances, such as herbs or homeopathy.  They are not subject to the same strict regulations and do not have to undergo the same testing to ensure quality and safety.

Many therapies should only be conducted by a skilled and qualified practitioner.  There are 'training colleges' who may award a 'diploma' after very little study, so go to a therapist who has been personally recommended to you, and/or who has been recognised and acredited by the official organisation for that therapy in the UK.

You are advised to thoroughly research any potential therapy, obtaining information from reliable sources - such as a national support group for the relevant condition.  Ask them, and speak to your doctor (and other professional if appropriate), about the pros and cons of the therapy.  Make an informed decision based on your findings.  Do not make a decision solely on what you read on web sites - not all offer reliable and accurate information.  I cannot guarantee the accuracy or reliability of any of the websites linked from these pages. 

You should only use complementary therapies in consultation with your doctor.   Some 'natural' remedies may be dangerous when mixed with other medications.  DO NOT stop or reduce your prescribed medication without your doctor's knowledge
