1 doctor agrees
In brief: Mostly not.
The definition of complimentary and alternative medicine is slippery.
I am a D.O., doctor of osteopathic medicine, and many M.D.'s consider my practice of manipulation, and philosophy of body self healing to be apocryphal(not accepted).I adhere to evidence based medicine as much as any dr.-but even the evidence isn't that firm.We learn more even day.Gsk told use Paxil (paroxetine) was safe in kids, not.
