Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    A false start for TM in California

    In an earlier post, Director David Lynch’s plan to fund the inclusion of transcendental meditation TM in the classroom was discussed.

    Here’s an update.

    Principal Carol Ramsay announced the start of a TM club as part of a new wellness program that would encourage students to eat balanced meals and exercise more. During the meeting, one attendee criticized TM as a cult, while others complained that the program would be linked to a religious movement.

    As resistance grew, the David Lynch Foundation withdrew the $175,000 it had pledged to Terra Linda High School in San Rafael.
