Edible Medicines Book Study Vol 10 Social Plants and CAM in the Marketplace - Today is the closing study session on this powerful book by author Nina L. Etkins.  While the study only briefly covers the depth of her research, we do share enough to excite those who are in the fields of Complimentary, Alternative Medicine (CAM) to get the book and continue to learn.  The two main chapters covered today are centered on 1) the role of "social plants" in culture, ceremony, relationships and healthy life practices, and 2) how CAM has risen in recent decades to become an ever-more-important component in the menu of health choices for prevention and treatment of diseases.  Among the social plants considered include: alcoholic beverages, coffee, teas, kava, yerba mate, khat and chocolate.  All of these have very well-established social and nutritional records as well as some negative side effects that should be understood.  We finish our study looking at such practices as herbs, botanical pharmaceuticals, energy therapies, physically manipulative therapies and the ways that these and others are rising to challenge the dominance of allopathic medicine and chemical pharmaceuticals.
