Traditional Medicine has contributed to human health care in the 21st century. There are many challenges to the safety and effective use of traditional medicine. The WHO Strategy will meet the gaps and challenges. One of the simplest and most effective ways to significantly lower health care costs and thus increase access is through a major focus on preventive medicine. In this clinical arena, many of the alternative health care systems may have much to offer. Homeopathic and naturopathic physicians, for example, strongly advise their patients about diet and other health-promoting lifestyle choices as a matter of routine care. In contrast, many conventional physicians do not routinely give such advice until a patient has already become chronically ill, by which time the patient may need expensive high-tech surgery and face a lifetime of expensive drug therapy. The widespread use of CAM therapies has implications not only for research but also for the education of conventional health care professionals. Health care professionals need to be informed about CAM and be knowledgeable enough to discuss with their patients the CAM therapies that their patients are using or thinking of using.
