Healthcare costs less with CAM, mortality in CAM and Conventional medicine equivalent

According to a recent study, using CAM in healthcare is a cost-effective alternative to conventional practice.  An economic evaluation of  the cost of CAM compared to conventional medicine, appraised in a 6-year study in Holland, showed that CAM was generally less expensive than conventional treatment. Furthermore this study came to the conclusion that mortality rates of patients treated with CAM compared to conventional medicine was equivalent.
