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.

    Non-drug options to treat insomnia

    Heathereen Cochran, MS, RN, an adult nurse practitioner at Oncology Care Associates in St. Joseph, Michigan, has published an informative review on non-drug treatment options for insomnia.

    In light of the recent JAMA publication (discussed here) showing the superiority of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) over Imovane (zopiclone), it’s interesting to review the status of these non-drug treatment options.
