Traditional and Complementary Medicine

Edited by Cengiz Mordeniz

Namık Kemal University

Modern medicine has reached a point where the patient is not treated as a biopsychosocial-spiritual being but rather is seen as a virtual identity consisting of laboratory findings and images. More focus is placed on relieving the symptoms instead of curing the disease. Mostly, patients are turned into lifetime medication-dependent individuals. New medicines are needed to overcome the side effects, complications, resistance, and intolerance caused by pharmacological and interventional therapies.

Traditional medicine has to be reevaluated with modern scientific methods to complement and integrate with evidence-based modern medicine.
