  1. And naturpoaths aren’t that altruistic either – I see lots of them with big houses a stable of arabian horses etc as well. And the companies that make all those “natural” supplements that are prescribed aren’t doing it for free as well.

  2. lives halfway between two CVSes.

    if i go 2 miles to the west the shelves have plenty of homeopathic “remedies” (prominently displayed right next to their cheaper CVS brand equivalent). but if i go 2 miles to the east there aren’t any “CVS brand equivalent”s on the shelves at all, and the homeopathic shtuff is there but hard to find.

  3. – you are absolutely right about the retailers profiteering (but please see my followup comment for an anecdote) and you are also correct in saying that these “remedies” work exactly as well as water and yet people still purchase them.

    but i wasn’t talking about that… i was responding to the absurd conspiracy theory that ‘pharmaceutical companies know that homeopathy works’ (to paraphrase). obviously they know how ineffective it is, and that’s why their focus is elsewhere.

  4. ,
    Homeopathy is a huge business and many pharmacy companies sell homeopathic products. CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and others carry homeopathic remedies just because people buy them. They don’t work. The pharmacists will even tell you they don’t work if you ask them, but people still buy them.

  5. And now I’m sad. I was looking forward to learning something new, but I guess I’ll have to look elsewhere.

    Evaluating proof claims is a difficult process, but it can be fun. But when those claims involve medical treatments it can become a matter of life and death. Please, everyone, treat it seriously.

    Sorry for sounding trollish. I didn’t mean to. Best of luck to you!

  6. I am disappointed. You claimed to have proof. But what you provided is simply a refinement of your claim: you narrowed it to make it much more specific. That is not proof of anything.

    Would you mind sharing with us your proof?

  7. I do the same – never go back to a Dr who isn’t worth my time. I do have proof that neurotoxins and the like are promoted by the medical field so I guess I am waiting on proof that natural medicine does anything. If that never comes, oh well.

  8. I’m sorry to hear that none of the doctors you’ve met have spent as much time as they should have explaining/educating. Don’t give up the search: I’ve met both kinds of doctors – I just don’t ever go back to the ones that don’t spend enough time.

    But please don’t be fooled by the warm fuzzy words from this video. You hit the nail on the head: the “education” they offer isn’t “proof” at all, it’s just a sales pitch to convince you that proof is not necessary!

  9. Could you please update the Wikipedia page on Homeopathy to include references to these MANY MANY controlled studies you talk about.

    Wikipedia is the first source that most people turn to when researching Homeopathy. If the information there is wrong, why don’t you correct it?

  10. I don’t understand? She says Naturopathic medicine helps the body heal itself? How is this different to most regular medicine?

    Mainly treat the cause? How is this different to modern medicine?

    Treat the whole person? Emotional cause? Physical cause? How is this different to my doctor that tailor makes my treatment to me?

    Prescribe lifestyle or dietary changes? My doctor bugs me about this all the time.

  11. I have no proof this is going to do anything that’s worth my time and energy but when the Dr. started recommending education in addition to healing, I was impressed. I’ve never met a Dr. that wanted to educate me about what’s up with me on the inside.

  12. – so there is zero corruption in alternative medicine? None of its practitioners need funding because they are just doing out of the goodness of their hearts?

    I see a troubling future for you, one where you will be separated from a very large chunk of your cash.
