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.

    NIH starts CAM for seniors website

     NIHSeniorHealth is a website that features health and wellness information for older adults from the National Institutes of Health.

    Now, it’s added a CAM link.

    Most interesting are the video interviews and discussions among experts, which the NIH has collected from a variety of sources.

    However, some were recorded a decade ago. For example the arthritis video on exercise is dated 1996. A narrative about John Glen and balance studies at NASA is dated 1998.

    The bottom line?
    It’s a good primer for CAM and general health information.
