In March 2002, the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine issued its final report. In it, the Commission addressed the coordination of research to increase knowledge about Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) products. It stated that “establishing a strong scientific base in CAM is necessary for acceptance and inclusion of safe and effective CAM therapies in health care.”
Additionally, the National Institute of Health (NIH) has increased funding for CAM research from $116 million in fiscal year 1999 to $247.6 million in fiscal year 2002.
New York College continues to solicit funds for research to explore new ways of combining Oriental healing methods with current Western scientific methods in diagnosis and treatment, further validating and supporting the field of holistic medicine.
