> > I'm not so sure the comparison between a high blood pressure med and a psych med is not valid. The bp med controls symptoms and does not cure. It also does it in a manner that disrupts natural body functions. Often one med does not work and another type of bp med is chosen. Sometimes a combo is needed. Sometimes one stops working and another is needed. Not that much different really than psych meds. Keep tinkering with the body until a desired result is produced. For all I know my bp med may be causing some unknown damage with it's disruption of natural processes to lower my pressure.

Many of alternative docs are not covered by med insurance. They tend to need tons of expensive tests. I think many of them are charlatans that take advantage of people who have not been helped by conventional medicine and drain people of money. How many of them treat the poor. These docs have clinics that charge outrageous prices. So they offer medicine that few can afford.

As I stated before alt med is like finding a needle of truth in a haystack of outragous claims. Sure some of them have have find processes that work but figure out who these people are. Basically right now alt med is a big unregulated mess.

Another thing when I used to browse on alt med websites advertising the latest miracle product. There were always testimonials. Were these testimonials even real? I suspect many of them were made up.

I just don't have time for this any more. Spent to many years reading books and buying products that cost me a lot of money and delivered nothing.

Sorry for the rant. But see to many people getting ripped off and being made false promises.
