Herbs and other dietary supplements besides vitamins are the most commonly used type of "complementary medicine" (also called alternative medicine) in the United States, followed by visits to chiropractors, yoga and massage, a new report finds.

In 2012, nearly 18 percent of American adults said they took herbs or other supplements that were not vitamins and minerals. Other types of complementary medicine were less common: 8.5 percent said they were treated by a chiropractor or osteopathic physician, 8.4 percent said they did yoga, 6.8 percent said they had a massage and 4.1 percent said they meditated.

So it seems like every study done so far demonstrates that chiropractic care is more cost effective than medical care except for one study.  That was the Medicare chiropractic demonstration project which showed chiropractic to be more costly than medical care but that was only in one area of the country the Greater Chicago Area.
Here is a paper which appeared in JMPT last year.  It states that the costs in Chicago blew away the stats for Medicare.  It states after the Medicare Demonstration Project was done that costs were still 17% higher for chiropractic Medicare in the Chicago area, but if you remove the Chicago area we are less expensive.

Low T Business Is Booming

It is perhaps the biggest men's health craze since Rogaine or Viagra: so-called low testosterone clinics, which have rapidly grown in cities and suburbs all across the country. But these "low T" clinics have also drawn the ire of leading urologists and endocrinologists who question the clinics' safety. 

The clinics themselves say they're legitimate medical practices. Dr. Bill Reilly is the chief medical officer at Low T Center, one of the largest chains of low T clinics, based in Southlake, Texas. His company has 45 offices and some 35,000 patients.  Reilly says the growing criticism from others in the medical community is perhaps just ignorance and fear of the competition. After all, Low T Center expects to more than double its sites in the next year, reaching perhaps as many as 70,000 patients.
