Abstract [en]

Dyspepsia is a common disorder. A lack of effective therapies for managing dyspepsia may invite use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). The aim of this study was to elucidate CAM methods and their perceived effects in a middle-sized community in Sweden. Group interviews were used. Persons with uninvestigated dyspepsia, according to the Rome II criteria, were included. Data were studied systematically using manifest content analysis. A total of 25 persons (13 women and 12 men) were assigned to five different groups. The CAM methods used by participants were categorized as follows: (1) nutritional, (2) drug/biological, (3) spiritual/psychological, and (4) physical activity. In this study, 26 CAM methods associated with various effects were identified and all persons had used at least one method.
