Does Complementary and Alternative Medicine Represent Only Placebo Therapies?

Jeffrey Bland, PhD, FACN, FACB

Abstract
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is something you heard about from your hairdresser, who thinks she saw it on Oprah a category that . . . includes acupuncture, homeopathy, healing magnets and assorted herbs and supplements.1 This is a quote from Jerry Adler’s editorial in the December 1, 2007, issue of Newsweek titled, “A Big Dose of Skepticism.” The editorial represents a strong shot across the bow of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) at the National Institutes of Health as well as the tens of thousands of licensed CAM practitioners and millions of their patients who regularly employ what have been termed “CAM therapies.”
