An integrated approach to healthcare draws on complementary and alternative treatments as well as mainstream pharmacological medicines, providing a wider choice of effective healthcare options for consumers.
Global research together with rising sales figures for complementary medicines demonstrate that consumers are increasingly opting for an integrated approach to their own healthcare, drawing together complementary therapies and orthodox medical treatments. Complementary and alternative medicines have been shown to be cost-effective and often comparing favourably with mainstream products.
Throughout the world, publicly-funded Health Services, as well as private providers, are delivering and funding treatments such as osteopathy, homeopathy and hypnotherapy in hospitals and community practices on a routine basis.
We at Nelsons are committed to widening patient choice by developing and distributing complementary medicines, supported by appropriate information and educational resources for practitioners and patients alike.
