However, the concomitant use of CAM with conservative management approaches could enhance therapeutic outcomes and wellness paradigm of the CKD/ESRD patients (Birdee, Phillips, & Brown, 2013). The CAM approach is based on the administration of mind-body interventions, dietary supplements, and herbs based on the CKD manifestations or clinical symptoms.
