Complementary and alternative medicine (cam) is the subject of heated debate. There are many
prejudices for and against cam. At the centre for Integrative Psychiatry (cip) of Lentis cam is
offered alongside conventional treatments, but under strict conditions. Because of the controversy
surrounding cam and the potential health risks involved, the cip in Lentis has formulated a
protocol for cam which is presented in this article.
