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.

    • 2 studies were found and reviewed.

    And, the results.

    • There is no supportive evidence that chiropractic is an effective treatment for gastrointestinal disorders.

    The bottom line?

    See above.
