I've found that alternative medicine is like finding a needle or maybe a couple needles of truth in a haystack of claims that will not bare fruit. If one has years of time and money to find these needles of truth than go on the search for the silver bullet. For most ill people they have neither the time or money to go through the haystack of claims.

I have also found searching through this sea of claims keeps one preoccuppied with one's illness and in some ways makes the situation worse.

Western Medicine does not cure but produces meds that control symptoms that keep us alive and productive and in the case of psych meds often keep us reasonably happy. No this system is not perfect but for the sick person the system in my opinion offers a better option. The results are quicker and most of us just want relief from our pain as fast as possible.

After 40 years of reading books on every new miracle cure I give up. Good nutrition and exercise I believe in. I don't want to look at another book on Lyme's disease, mercury filling and this diet and that diet. Just give me my pill and let me feel better. Makes my life a lot simpler and gives me time to read about other things than the newest silver bullet to save mankind. Personally I believe alternative medicine is infested with quackery and a lot of people out to empty your wallets.

I think when my alternative med doctor committed suicide that was a wake up call. He adopted an eastern philosophy of medicine with herbs acupuncture and the whole deal. He once told me his best response to his depression were his years on Nardil.
