In her book, Don’t Sweep It Under the Drug!, author Cathy Rosenbaum undertakes the complicated task of putting a realistic and evidence-based face on the Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) growth industry that is nominally regulated and controversial within the medical community. Her section on the role of the FDA and herbal medications is especially helpful to those that are thinking of starting or currently taking a wide range of nutritional supplements. She also weaves spirituality, mindfulness and guided imagery throughout the manuscript. For those interested in CAM this is an excellent place to start. – Richard G. Wendel MD, MBA
