Abstract and Keywords

Studies suggest that between 20%–50% of adults in industrialized nations use some form of complementary and/or alternative medicine (CAM) to either prevent or treat health problems, with higher rates of CAM use observed in nonindustrialized nations. Frequently used approaches include biologically based treatments, manipulative and body-based practices, and mind-body interventions. This chapter summarizes findings from systematic investigations of CAM in treating anxiety disorders and other anxiety states.

Keywords: alternative medicine, anxiety disorders, botanical CAM, complementary medicine, dietary supplement
