What it is:  the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, is a division of the National Institutes of Health, “The Nation’s Medical Research Agency,” from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. To quote the site, NCCAM …”conducts and supports research, trains CAM researchers, and provides information about CAM.” 

Where it is

What you’ll find there:   Information about what CAM (complementary and alternative medicine – that’s the CAM in NCCAM) is; research based information on specific therapies such as acupuncture, milk thistle and other herbs, the latest studies on alternative medicine remedies and treatments such as a January 2009 report on acupuncture for migraine headaches and a study that showed grapeseed extract may help neurodegenerative diseases, and much more.   NCCAM is a conservative, reliable resource for anyone interested in alternative medicine. 

Recommendation:  Bookmark this site and visit often.
