To the Editor: The complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) series raised awareness and provided balanced and thoughtful debate. The article by Kerridge and McPhee in that series1 is no exception, but we would like to question their conclusion that “not only is it unclear whether a true integration of conventional and unconventional medicines is possible, but, more importantly, whether it is even desirable”. For a variety of reasons we believe that it is both possible and desirable.
