Time To Talk Tips on Complementary Health Practices

Like any decision concerning your health, decisions about whether to use complementary health practices are important. An essential part of that decision-making process is learning what scientific studies have discovered about the complementary health approach you are considering. Understanding a therapy's potential benefits, risks, and scientific evidence is critical to your health and safety.

This monthly series, Time to Talk Tips, is designed to encourage a discussion between you and your health care providers. Tell your providers about the complementary practice you are considering. This will help ensure coordinated and safe care.
