New complementary and alternative medicine report

If you've asked us for any information about the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in the United States, you probably saw the 2004 report, "Complementary and Alternative Medicine Use Among Adults: United States, 2002," with a note that this was the most up-to-date and comprehensive info available.

Well, I'm happy to say there's a new report on the subject. "Costs of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and Frequency of Visits to CAM Practitioners: United States, 2007" was released by the CDC on July 30, 2009.

The data covers a wide range of CAM practices, including energy therapy, acupuncture, biofeedback, hypnosis and massage, providing data on out of pocket costs, practitioner costs, and number of visits per year.
