The general term "Complementary and Alternative Medicine" (CAM) has been used in the UK and USA to distinguish it from mainstream medicine. So what's in a name? Most members of the public use these two words (complementary and alternative) almost without thought when referring to non-mainstream healthcare. In fact, the difference between the two is quite important to understand.
...my CST practice is necessarily Complementary to mainstream medicine, and is not Alternative...
True "Alternative" medicine would emphasise wellness, but would also have to include surgery, and some provision for hospitalised treatment with trained nursing staff. It would look almost exactly like a modern hospital. There would probably be very few vaccinations. Use of long-term medications such as statins or beta blockers would be very rare. There would probably be less surgery, because there would also be a far larger preventative focus. A Vitalist approach would result in much smaller, earlier and lower impact interventions. The entire public health package would be radically different in its philosophy, and in its application.
