Alternative, complimentary and integrative medicine

We recently published "An Open Letter to Alternative Medicine," which received quite a bit of attention and drew a response from a patient advocate living with rheumatoid arthritis. This is a topic we've covered broadly before on Healthy Debate. Here, you'll find a timeline that includes the open letter, response to it and some other pieces we've published on complimentary, alternative and integrative medicine in years passed.

Please, Alternative Medicine, stop using untrue assertions to justify your existence. You can’t fix the problems of the conventional system with unproven therapies and misinformation.
