The C.A.M. Report
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.

    Update on Abraham Cherrix and his cancer treatment

    Back in August this young man went to court to avoid a second round of conventional cancer treatment for Hodgkin’s disease in favor of CAM.

    Here’s an update.

    The Washington Post reports he’s doing fine after spending six weeks at a Mississippi clinic where he was treated by a new oncologist.

    His father said the radiation “dramatically” shrank the tumor in his neck.

    An earlier article stated that he also received natural supplements and diet to bolster his immune system.

    Nothing has been written since then. So, I guess he’s doing OK.
