Edzard Ernst – Critically evaluates all things “complementary” – and said this in a blog…

http://edzardernst.com/2015/06/an-alternative-treatment-that-could-actually-be-integrated-into-clinical-routine/  – The evidence for FM has become substantially more promising since we last looked at it systematically. The indication for which the evidence is most convincing is the improvement of elderly people’s balance. Considering that FM is virtually risk-free and inexpensive, I feel that it is one of the rare alternative therapy that could be integrated into clinical routine (for this particular indication).
