Title: Reflexive Practices: ways of using complementary medicine by people living with HIV/AIDS   (PDF File 163.4 KB)

Author(s): Rachel Thorpe

Subject(s): HIV

Description:

Given the high rate of complementary medicine (CM) use amongst people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) it is important to understand the meanings of these practices for CM users and how people make decisions to use them alongside antiretroviral treatments (ARV). The current popularity of CM practices in Western countries has been attributed to a post-modern scepticism of biomedicine and a loss of status of doctors. Other suggested reasons for the current popularity of CM practices include the rise in consumer culture, the growing popularity of preventative health, the ideology of individual responsibility for health and the influence of the internet on how people seek information about health. The fact that many PLWHA are using CM alongside ARV suggests that decision making and beliefs around health and illness are complex.
