Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
Medicine is the science, art, and practice of diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease.
Science-based medicine is the mainstream medicine which depends on scientific evidence to establish clinical diagnosis and treatment. Whereas Alternative medicine is the use of non-mainstream approaches in place of the conventional ones or complement them.
Biomedical sciences are fields of study concerned with biological systems and medicine. Example areas of study include the utilization of biological systems to develop new medical diagnostics, therapies, and forensics besides answering arising ethical and legal questions.
Nutrition & Biochemical Sciences
Nutrition is concerned with the actions of nutrients from food, minerals, vitamins and supplements “Nutraceuticals” on growth, reproduction, generating energy, health and disease prevention.
Nutritionists focus on assessing food intake,absorption, and growth, and designing food menu plans to help clients achieve healthier lifestyle and maintaining weight.
Biochemical sciences are concerned with analyzing body chemical composition, body fluids, chemical reactions needed to sustain life, metabolism of food and nutrients, how to generate energy, and what chemical imbalances can cause disease and how to diagnose such imbalances.
Allied Health & Biophysical Sciences
Allied health is the segment of the healthcare field that delivers services involving identifying, evaluating and prevention of disease. Allied health services also encompass dietary and nutrition services, physical therapy, rehabilitation, health administration, health informatics, imaging technology, pharmacy technology, and medical laboratory testing.
Biophysical sciences explain how living bodies function and move, study their organs and sensory systems, research and develop new tools useful in areas such as biofeedback, neuropathy, neurotherapy, biooptics, light therapy, enhancing physical and mental performance, and whole body.
