Aspiring hyperbaric medicine clinical investigators take note. In last month's New England Journal of Medicine, "A Randomized Trial of Tai Chi for Fibromyalgia" put the lie to the myth that it's next to impossible to produce first-class evidence for alternative medicine. Still, it takes money, plenty of money. Big Pharma didn't fund this study, Big Government did—the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, to be precise, a section of the National Institutes of Health. The results should be motivating for HBOT researchers, who could secure like funding if they tried harder, and especially welcome news for people living with fibromyalgia.
