Due to the growing evidence of the benefits of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and continued popularity of CAM amongst the general public, many forward-thinking family doctors now appreciate the value of complementary therapies and refer patients to CAM practitioners when appropriate. This multi disciplinary approach places greater emphasis on prevention and successful management of both the physical and emotional components of chronic disease which are intimately related.

Most family doctors have patients with chronic illness who could benefit from the services of CAM practitioners, and vice-versa. To promote moves towards more integrated care CAM practices Apple A day RX has created a worldwide CAM practitioner listing.

Many practitioners of Conventional medicine and Alternative medicine create barriers to healing their clients by believing that their system of medicine is the only way. As CAM practitioners we can help many people suffering from the pain and misery of illness by working with Family physicians/GP and other CAM practitioners.

The Apple A Day RX app was created for the purpose of building bridges by providing a resource tool to :

  • inform medical doctors of the level of scientific evidence for complementary medicines and therapies
  • encourage complementary and alternative medicine practitioners to consult and work with medical doctors for improved therapeutic, safe outcomes for their clients.
  • appreciate how scientific research of complementary practices can add value in identifying the mechanism of action and develop effective, practical, patient-centred strategies for the promotion of health.

For example, I have worked in Integrative Medicine centres as a practitioner of Ayurveda, Remedial Massage, Homotoxicology, Yoga and Spiritual Counseling in Integrated Medicine Centres in Germany, Canada, UK and Australia. Understanding disease pathology and pharmacology from a western and eastern perspective gave me the edge in treating clients and working with medical doctors who were open to CAM therapies to improve the health and wellbeing of their patients. Using this multidisciplinary approach we strategically formulated treatment plans with timelines due to budgeting issues, and successfully treated severe illnesses like; infection of potential kidney transplant patient (drugs and herbs were contraindicated), Anorexia, Infertility, Diabetic Neuropathy, Chronic Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, ADHD, etc.

If you are a CAM practitioner that has not previously worked with Medical Doctors, or you are looking for marketing strategies to enhance your business then help is at hand as Apple A Day RX provide a coaching service to help you build your clientele.
