Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Complementary medicine, also known as traditional or alternative medicine, has gained much attention in recent years as it has been shown to be effective in treating a number of chronic and infectious diseases such as cancer, autoimmune disorders and various common infections. As such, vitamins, minerals, herbs, polyphenols, aromatherapy, natural products, chiropractic medicine, osteopathic manipulative therapy, nutritional therapy and yoga have been shown to boost the immune system and, as a result, help to manage and treat disease. This Special Issue will focus on complementary treatments to overcome or manage chronic and infectious diseases.
