Some of these "natural' healing therapies are really a joke... The videos are something to watch and laugh.

I really wish people could get charged with fraud for taking money for these "treatments". It's just ridiculous

I was sent to one of these people by my parents once haha. I remember they pricked my finger or something, took a blood sample on a tissue, then placed it on my chest. Then proceeded to do the arm resistance thing shown in the video.

The Museum of Questionable Medical Devices

Highly educational. wink   An old plain-vanilla website, but with lots of good material.

Recommended by 9 out of 10 doctors ...

johnr: OMG how do they get away with it some people are soooo gullible

 

In no way do I support quackery, but OTOH some conventional treatments (drugs) have remarkably low efficacy in trials - yet are self-reported to be remarkably effective when prescribed.

 

Use of a little quackery isn't unique to "alternative" medicine.

Had to laugh at this from the above link:

 

"Chiropractors across the country are also starting to see an influx of patients whose neck and shoulder pain increased after using the pillows"

 

 

 

So the gullible people are complaining to their fake doctors that their fake pillows don't work

Also have to laugh at "journalists" writing it's instead of its.

That's brilliant. It's versus its, your vs you're, there vs their, who vs whom, I vs me.

English and its grammar were never my strengths, when I was at school. Now, because of my learning additional languages (Maori and Spanish) my English grammar has improved. Not that each directly impacted English, as each language had its own grammatical rules, but the learning of each language piqued a desire to improve my English grammar.

+1 for learning a second language at school.

Went off topic there.

I've had great results from chiropractic treatment, so I don't think of them as quacks. However, that is not to mean there aren't some quacks among them.
