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.

    CAM vs. integrative medicine

    Integrative medicine is not just a 21st century politically correct term for complementary and alternative medicine.

    According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Medicine, integrative medicine combines mainstream medical therapies and CAM therapies for which there is some high-quality scientific evidence of safety and effectiveness.

    CAM, by comparison covers a broader group of therapies, including those for which much of the evidence is unsettled.
