By requesting the panel, the United States is providing time for the EU to reconsider its plans to provide new subsidies and recommit to the agreed January 11th U.S.-EU agreement for negotiations.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine in the United States mains (and their patients), the significance of a given therapeutic intervention may be less about efficacy on the physiological level and more about emotional health, coping, psychological growth, transformation, and self-actualization (Maslow, 1968).
