Non-nutritional CAM Therapies – including Mind-mediated Therapies; and Physically Applied CAM Therapies 3. Non-dietary Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Use and Benefits to the Elderly in Health



  • Identifies the important nutritional requirements of the aging population, and how nutraceuticals and other CAM options affect those
  • Addresses the many disease entities and cancers are found with higher frequency in the aged, including cancer, trauma, or infectious disease that can alter intakes of nutraceutical containing foods and/or requirements for various nutrients.
  • Explores the nutritional materials botanical extracts and components that can have important health promotion benefits and risks, to ensure safe consumption
  • Reviews the frequently used non-traditional and often unproven CAM therapies, beyond nutritional and nutraceutical supplements, including a variety of physical and psychosocial treatments.
