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.

    In the wake of Virginia Tech

    Dr. Edward Creagen has recommendations for those living through grief.

    His thoughts and recommendations can be read at and are summarized below.

    • Actively grieve and mourn.
    • If you don’t face your grief, your wounds may never quite go away.
    • We grieve alone, but we heal in community.
    • Don’t make major decisions.
    • Take care of yourself.
    • Time helps, but it may not cure.

    “You may never return to your previous baseline.” says Dr. Creagen. “The death of a loved one changes us forever. Instead, you may find yourself at a new ‘normal.'”
