Abstract/OtherAbstract:
More and more neurological patients use some form of complementary and alternative medicine. Contrary to what many sceptics believe, not all of these approaches are useless. Contrary to what many proponents think, not all treatments are harmless. Neurologists should know more about complementary and alternative medicine and should advise their patients responsibly.
