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.

    Bio mapping: A complementary way to reduce stress

    More technology to our rescue.

    Bio Mapping is a research project that explores new ways for people to gather and use information about their bodies.

    According to Christian Nold, the Bio Mapping tool allows the wearer to record their galvanic skin response — a simple indicator of their emotional arousal — in conjunction with their geographical location. The data can then be used to plot a map that highlights points of high and low arousal.

    By sharing and reflecting on these data, maps can be made that show where we as a community feel stressed and excited.

    Think of the possibilities.

    Thanks to Jonathan Crowe at The Map Room for the lead.
