Alternative medicine has its place

Complementary medicine is useful when conventional approaches have failed or do not fit a patient's requirements ('Should the NHS Alliance be endorsing alternative medicine?').

The RCGP found 60% of GPs were interested in knowing more about it.

Professor Edzard Ernst is viewing the battlefield from an ivory tower. The BMJ handbook of clinical evidence gives us the stark statistic that evidence only exists for 15% of medical interventions. Please would the professor comment on this?
