Can CAM treatment strategies control symptoms of RTIs and reduce antibiotic use? A SR of SRs

Introduction: Respiratory-tract-infections (RTIs) are among the most common infections experienced in the community, and are among the most common reasons for antibiotic prescribing internationally. Despite widespread public popularity, there is a paucity of research investigating the potential contribution of complementary-and-alternative-medicine (CAM) to the treatment of infections. Our aim is to identify CAM strategies that control symptoms of RTIs, reduce use of antibiotics, and that are safe.
