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.

    Sunflower therapy for dyslexia

    It seems to improve self-esteem but not cognition (eg, perception, memory, judgment, and reasoning) or literacy, according to a recent study of 70 dyslexic children aged 6 to 13 years.

    Call me skeptical, but…

    improvements in academic self-esteem, and reading self-esteem in the absence of actual improvement in academics and reading seem to miss the mark in terms of what these children actually need from treatment.

    Sunflower therapy includes individually applied kinesiology, physical manipulation, massage, homeopathy, herbal remedies and neuro-linguistic programming. More info is found here.
