ACAM FEATURED WRITERS AND ARTICLES


Alternative cancer treatments and the Rubik's Cube
Dr. Antonio Jimenez, M.D.
Hope4Cancer Institute

In the field of cancer therapy, there is a glaring gap between the volume of published science that backs up conventional medicine when compared to alternative medicine. Lack of adequate resources has kept alternative medicine a relatively disorganized field, and much of the progress in this arena has been dependent on the individual brilliance of the bigger minds that are engaged in the development of its science and clinical research.

Gearing up for the hockey season...
John Gannage, MD
I'm pushing 50 years old. In 1-1/3 years, I'm at the half-century mark. Hard to believe. I received a "compliment" the other day from a patient at the Clinic. His words were: "Geez if you get any thinner (more fit?) you'll have to move around in the shower to get wet." I said "Thanks, I'll take that as a compliment." He meant it as one, so he said.
