What gets me is that this person goes on to bash online self-publishing sites. While there is a lot of web pollution coming from those sites, I see them as a necessary part of free speech. People should be allowed to share their medical opinions and beliefs. If you are looking for serious advice, then look to see if MD comes after their name.
Sometimes people outside the medical establishment make important medical discoveries. The first anesthesiologists didn't have that title. Some recreational drug users discovered the first anesthesia meds. Sure, the one was a dentist, and wanted a pain-free way to extract teeth, and he found that laughing gas worked for that. But the one chance he had to prove himself, the medication let him down, and he was declared a laughing stock of medicine. Then another guy comes along and decides to use a parlor game of chemical sniffing to find a suitable anesthetic. Well, someone shoved some chloroform in his face, and the next thing he remembered was being on the floor from his chair and not knowing how he got there. He presented his discovery and was declared a hero, even though his discovery took quite a few lives. About the only use for chloroform these days is in obstetrics, if I remember right. Now, there are more options, and with the right patient selection and the right drugs, it is relatively safe.
Oh, and local anesthesia was discovered on the streets. Cocaine users noticed that cocaine made their nose and lips numb, and then doctors tried using it. Once pain receptors were discovered, researchers were able to modify cocaine to make it non-addicting while still able to numb tissue.
