Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an umbrella term for complementary medicine and alternative medicine, and incorporates integrative medicine and various subjects such as herbalism, meditation, chiropractic, yoga, body work and diet-based therapies.

The perceived boundaries within CAM and between the CAM and the dominant system vary with culture, time and can change with scientific evidence. In many countries, long established traditional medicines viewed as CAM in US and the West with caution or even scorn, have to various degrees re-emerged, been officially recognized, regulated and standardized, and/or begun a process of scientific rationalization with Western medical principles.
