    Holy crap what a pantload. I had to politely tell her that I try to go with things that can be clinically proven, not things that rely on emperical evidence... then I had to explain to her why homeopathy is bullshit. :hsugh: I hope they havn't given this fuckface too much of their money

    this guy just sounds like an all around tard. He's got my grandparents on that "eat right for your blood type" program and it just sounds ridiculous.

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate therapeutic effect of comprehensive therapy of acupuncture as main in postoperative recovery of prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc. METHODS: Seventy-seven cases were randomly divided into an observation group (n = 40) and a control group (n = 37). The observation group were treated with acupuncture at Shenshu (BL 23), Dachangshu (BL 25), Baliao (BL 31, BL32, BL33, BL 34), Zhibian (BL 54) combined with polarized light, and the control group with western medicine dikeleke 75 mg, once daily. They were treated for 1 month. RESULTS: The cure-markedly effective rate was 95.0% in the observation group and 75.7% in the control group with a significant difference between the two groups (P<0.05). The average VAS score was 2.28 +/- 0. 96 in the observation group and 3.49 +/- 1.45 in the control group with a significant difference between the two groups (P <0.01). CONCLUSION: The comprehensive therapy of acupuncture as main can obviously increase the therapeutic effect in the postoperative recovery of prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc.

    "Proven?" Do you mean "shown" possibly?

    If you don't believe in natural medicine you're a fucking idiot. Not to say every form out there is 100% proven/effective, but to pass off treating a condition as less valuable than treating symptoms would be pretty ignorant.

    i knew a lady once while i was in Maine that did that "reflexology" stuff, all that foot crap. she was a crazy hippie and had already smoked away most of her braincells back in the 60's, why anyone would give her any amount of credibility is beyond me.

    nice lady though, but why someone would trust their health with someone like this over a medical doctor is beyond me. she was going to give me a free session but i never got around to, i'm sure it would feel good at least :dunno:

    Truth. It doesn't happen too often but many times a drug is less effective than those "scientific" studies have led the public to believe (the FDA has become an incompetent regulator in the last 15 years).

    But American's are getting what they deserve...

    Indeed. I love how people think that it's not doctors/scientists coming up with the alternative treatment... Many look towards natural compounds, but no, synthetic compounds must be vastly superior because we hear more about them!!!! I guess 3 X 8 is the best workout too, cuz we hear more about that than CP, etc..

    natural shit is stupid. i still can't beleive people go to get acupuncture. I saw this cupping stuff on tv. Where they take this glass cup and light a match underneath it. Then they put the cup on your back. It suctions your skin. Most retarded thing I ever seen. New Age medicine is just a bunch of BS. Anyone who beleives in this garbage need's their head examined.

    Yeah dude medical science is a big conspiracy and THE MAN is using mind control drugs to fool us.

    I'm talking about new age medicine. maybe i should have clarified that. There was a thing on 30 days about it. Morgan Spurlock is the host. They tried defending it saying it was just as valid as regular medicine. It was total bs though. I think acupuncture is one of the biggest scams in medicine. It's the most stupid shit ever. ANYONE who think's that this actually helps you is a shmuck.

    Not everything has been proven or even will be, a lot of it can be fads, but until you can disprove it then nobody can really say much... I think that many things are much better than pharmaceuticals

    I am more than willing to debate it. If you think that pharmaceuticals are the answer to most issues you've been misguided. People are horrified by the hepatoxicity of M1T and other compounds but neglect to think of the effects from synthetic medicines because they're the "magic get better pill." Then you have interaction among pharmaceuticals, prescriptions to counteract negative effects of other prescriptions, etc etc etc.. it really takes a toll on the body. Prevention, maintenance, and treatment are key... Rarely does a pharmaceutical do this, much less without substantially compromising your body. The FDA is one of the more corrupt governing bodies, economically driven health, how about that? It's unsettling thinking that your next prescription or health "treatment" may be decided upon commissions and kickbacks gained by pharm reps and the doctors who write the prescriptions. How anyone can not see this is beyond me.
