Abstract

This report presents a variety of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) modalities that may expand the conceptual framework and the evolution of the field of neonatology. This brief overview provides evidence-based support of CAM therapies and suggests areas for future expansions. The National Center of Complementary Medicine (NCCAM) categories of lifestyle and biomechanical therapies guide the discussion. The catalyst for exploring complementary care is a desire to identify and expand the nuturants newborns require, such as intense care. The fundamental philosophy of intense care emphasizes the infant and family and inspires a fresher, clearer vision of relationships. Knowing that infants are amazingly responsive organisM.S., health care providers are faced with the realization that the environment must be thoughtfully designed. The holistic medical movement has increasingly challenged the health care profession to broaden the definitions of care and maximize the awareness of the mother-infant bond and parent competency.
