When woo meets mainstream medicine

---it gets my attention, especially when the mainstream embraces or teaches it uncritically. My mission: expose it. The latest is the Maine Medical Center Family Practice elective, Integrative Medicine focus:

The integrative medicine portion of the rotation takes place both in the Family Practice Centers and in the offices of complementary and integrative medicine practitioners in the community. This aspect includes opportunities to observe patient care and provider/patient interactions and has the potential for complementary therapy treatments. Learning experiences may include integrative medicine consults, mind/body medicine, homeopathy, manual therapies, acupuncture and nutritional and botanical medicine.
