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.

    Making chiropractic care benefits available to vets

    The US House of Representatives has passed legislation to expedite expansion of chiropractic benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care system. The bill was approved 421:1.

    According to an article on, “HR 1470 requires the VA to have a chiropractor on staff at no fewer than 75 major VA medical centers before the end of 2009. All major VA medical centers would be required to have a chiropractor on staff before the end of 2011.”

    The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
