Figure 7: 10 Most Common Therapies Among Children (2007) Figure 8: Most Common Natural Products Among Children (2007) Figure 9: Diseases/Conditions for Which CAM is Most Frequently Used Among Children (2007) NCCIH plans to collaborate with NCHS on further analyses of the survey findings.
Among the areas of interest to the researchers are CAM costs and spending, dietary supplements, and reasons for CAM use.
Future reports will be published by NCHS and posted on the NCCIH web site.
The mission of NCCIH is to define, through rigorous scientific investigation, the usefulness and safety of complementary and integrative health interventions and their roles in improving health and health care.
Overall, approximately 12 percent of children use some form of CAM.
