This alternative "medicine" should not be endorsed, or supported, by anyone with half a brain. None of it. Shut them all down.

One bad apple doesn't make all bad.

With thousands of mental health workers on the take using damaging mind drugs and with cardiologist's using Statin drugs there is reason to suspect the health industry of tremendous fraud leading to billions in health care that should be addressed.

The deaths and violence alone from the pharmaceutical industry should be met with harsh penalty.

There is no science to the mental health industry. No medical model. NO evidence based medicine. No test for chemical imbalance of the brain to which the APA admitted to the falsehood in 2004. The industry is based on hearsay and is political.

Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness

Every so often Al Frances says something that seems to surprise even him. Just now, for instance, in the predawn darkness of his comfortable, rambling home in Carmel, California, he has broken off his exercise routine to declare that “there is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.” Then an odd, reflective look crosses his face, as if he’s taking in the strangeness of this scene: Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Associations Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV), the guy who wrote the book on mental illness, confessing that “these concepts are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries.” For the first time in two days, the conversation comes to an awkward halt.

There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a medical condition.

Much safer with alternative medicine then the pharmaceutical toxic medicines that have a track record of death and violence.

So ... in other words .... you just buy into anything without evidence, but anything with actual science and evidence you completely discard. If you want to risk your life with the sewage that is "homeopathy" fine, but don't spread lies about it being safe.

No... I research and depend on evidence based medicine and separate the Horse manure of the Pharmaceutical Industry and the bad and addicting drugs IMO and write off people like yourself preaching misinformation and having little to no knowledge on the subject of chemistry . You should speak on a subjects pertaining to your knowledge, if any, rather then draw conclusions and answer for other persons to which you have no knowledge of those person or information to contribute to a posting.

You did not do any research, or you would know, the active ingredient in herbals are the same as those in prescription, only with the herbals you get a bunch of other junk with it, like eating a pile of sewage just for the one crab leg. Other homeopathic "medicines" have the same success rate as placebo, no different, however, many people have died from preventable illness because of this placebo effect.
