Alternative Medicine Links & Resources

Below is a list of direct links to a number of websites for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM):

American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM)
The use of EDTA chelation therapy for cardiovascular disease remains quite controversial and is generally not subscribed to by most physicians in the United States or by major medical organizations, such as the AMA and the American Heart Association. Their position is that this treatment is “unproven” for the above mentioned conditions. However, a national medical association known as ACAM (American College for Advancement in Medicine) has sponsored educational seminars and conferences for physicians on the use of EDTA chelation therapy for the treatment of cardiovascular disorders since 1974. It has established a protocol for the safe and effective administration of EDTA. Many of its members have been certified in the use of chelation therapy by the American Board of Chelation Therapy

Autism Research Institute
Taken from the ARI website: "Rates of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis in children are rapidly increasing to epidemic proportions, and are expected to continue to rise. Families and communities struggle to understand, and to cope with this challenge. While causes of ASD remain unclear, recent scientific advances challenge the traditional view of autism as an untreatable disease—as one that is “genetically hard-wired.” These developments support the position that Autism Research Institute (ARI) has always maintained: Autism Is Treatable. Established in 1967 by psychologist and renowned father of modern autism research Dr. Bernard Rimland, ARI continues to pioneer in research, outreach, and cooperative efforts with other organizations worldwide. ARI advocates for the rights of people with ASD, and operates without funding from special-interest groups."
