The 4th National Convention of the Cuban Society of Bio-Energy and Natural Medicine (BIONAT 2012) kicks off Tuesday in this capital aimed at expanding the local experience through the exchange among experts in the field.
The convention includes the 5th National Homeopathy Conference, the Floral Therapy Forum and other events on Traditional Asian Medicine, Magnetic Therapy, and other specialties, according to the organizing committee.
Participants will discuss presentations on clinical research and pre and postgraduate training for doctors, dentists, psychologists, nurses and paramedic personnel.
Alternative and natural medicine has been validated by research made by the Cuban National Health system and it is used in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, as well as in the patients’ rehabilitation stage.
The Cuban Health Ministry is jointly working with the Agriculture sector to increase productions that are used in alternative medicine. This effort is in tune with the guidelines of the Economic and Social Policy of the Communist Party and the Revolution, which emphasizes the development of natural medicine, said Doctor Marta Perez who heads the alternative medicine department at the Health Ministry.
