This textbook is a compilation of lectures on various topics in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) delivered to medical students and as continuing medical education for practicing physicians at the University of Chicago. The chapters, by different authors, are written in varying degrees of detail. The majority of discussions are extremely thorough, with careful attention to the refereed medical literature for supporting evidence for the utility, or lack thereof, of the modality under discussion.
