Content is divided into two broad categories for your reference:
Herbs & Dietary Supplements (Examples: vitamins, botanicals, natural products, and probiotics)
Mind & Body Practices (Examples: tai chi, meditation, prayer, yoga, acupuncture, spinal manipulation, and massage)
Books, journals, and websites on this Welcome page will lead you to more information about CAM therapies that don't fit well into the two categories above (or those that seem to fall into both.)
