To complete this task students will need to critically evaluate evidence and demonstrate critical thinking skills. Instructions:Students will critically evaluate the condition of HYPERTENSION. To complete the task students will need to critically appraise the literature and based on this propose appropriate therapetutic interventions. Students will need to investigate two-(2) complementary medicine (CM) treatments relevant to their modality (either herbal or nutritional or both).The literature r eview, must be compiled fro m a search of the most rece nt (5 -10 years) publ ished literature abo ut your topic; however, if there are limited studies you may go beyond this range.
