"This is also true of complementary and alternative medicines as a whole, where evidence of effectiveness is nonexistent, inconsistent or unable to perform better than a placebo. Yet many of these practices, including acupuncture, chiropractic practices, herbal supplementation and homeopathy seem to be increasingly sought out by people to cure what ails them, typically as a desire to cure the “whole” individual (mind, body and soul) through “ancient” and “natural” remedies."

More types of these studies need to be done. far too many people have been ripped off by these charlatans.

most people have no idea just how bizarre and unfounded chiropractic "treatments" are. i.e. activaor, nucca, gonstead, hio, sot, network etc etc

he he he
Folks, it's simple: wisdom says he was a chiropractor which means if he really is a chiropractor he borrowed over a hundred grand to become one. Anyone who spends that kind of money and time must have been convinced it worked or they wouldn't have done it. They must have had some great experience.
Fast forward to after his graduation. He says he started a practice but failed. Ok, fine. You can deduce he was incompetent both as a chiropractor and a businessman. That must be it since there are tens of thousands of successful chiropractors helping hundreds of thousands of people each day. Wisdom ain't one of them--he had no skill, that or had lousy people skills meaning a lousy, arrogant bedside manner and drove away what few patients he had.
Now comes the anger part. Failing in practice pisssed wisdom off to no end--thus his daily chiropractic bashing.
Oh, and now he wants everyone to think he's an important critical care MD--this after failing as a chiropractor! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHH H AH AH AHA HA HA HA AH AH AH AHA HA HA AH HA
Man, did I just expost that fraud, wisdom.! Man!!

i'm sure oncologists will have already told you, but you should always check with them before adding any alternative therapy to any cancer treatment. An example is there are a lot of 'herbal' remedies that interfere with the effects of chemotherapy. Also, depending on the of cancer, sometimes massage type therapies are not advised.
