Alternative Medicine Summary


Alternative Medicine: Should We Swallow It? by Institute of Ideas

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an increasingly acceptable part of the repertory of healthcare professionals and is becoming more and more popular with the public. It seems that CAM has come of age - but should we swallow it? Contributors from a variety of healthcare backgrounds make the case for and against CAM in this text. The Institute of Idea's mission is to expand the boundaries of public debate through organizing conferences, discussions and salons, and publishing written conversations and exchanges in a hope to play a part in shaking up a culture that seems to shy away more and more from confrontation and the clash of ideas. This series aims to present thought-provoking arguments.
