Complementary Therapies

Complementary therapies are additional or “alternative” approaches to conventional medicine. Their goal is to preserve health, alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. There are hundreds of disciplines and a wide variety of approaches. Here are some examples: 

  • osteopathy
  • physiotherapy
  • massage therapy
  • naturopathy
  • gentle movement practices such as yoga or swimming
  • cannabis

 

The use of natural products is widespread among Canadians (70%).

When conventional medicine fails to heal or relieve us or does not yield the expected results, many people use complementary approaches in the hope that they can regain their health.

If you have scleroderma and want to try an alternative product, it is very important that you get information about them to understand how well they work and how to best incorporate them into your life.

It is important to talk to your doctor before taking any non-prescribed products. Some products can interfere with your medications and are not recommended for treating the manifestation of scleroderma.
