Like it or not, the medical industry is market driven so it doesn't surprise me that hospitals are offering alternative Tx - after all, they too want their share of the $38B alternative Tx business pie.

I have serious problems with the ethics and morality of this. Especially when CCC's get involved like, Mayo Clinic. It appears to validate it with the science to back it up.

I have to retract my last statement about the Mayo Clinic Alternative Therapy. They have cleaned up the site considerably since I visited last. It is much more in line with current science.
