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 an editorial on Medscape, Dan Hurley, author of the book Natural Causes says, “It’s time for physicians to face [the fact] that the majority of their patients use supplements.”

    Mr. Hurley believes, “They need to ask all their patients about them — Do you take vitamins? Do you take any herbs or other supplements? — and apply evidence-based standards in discussing their merits.

    To all physicians: Welcome to The C.A.M. Report — specializing in reporting evidence-based results on complementary and alternative medicine — Fair, Balanced, and to the Point.
