Why are some people so ferociously attacking alternative healing methods?


What is it that makes them jump on every hint that pharmaceuticals might not be the only solution? Why do they even break a sweat over the benefits or claims of natural healing methods, be it Energy Medicine or Homeopathy? Why do they go to such great lengths trying to convince others that everything that has to do with alternative healing is humbug?

    I don't have a problem with natural remedies if they can be proven to work. Treating athlete's foot with vinegar makes sense - the acid in the vinegar kills fungal cells. My problem is with methods that invoke magic in order to work.

    As much as I would like to say that you're seeing it to dark, I know you're on point with most you say. It's all upside down now, everything that was supposed to help us, is now threatening us and our freedom. I wonder, was it planned that way?

    Good idea! :-)

    I think, one important point is also the monopolisation of all mainstream media, which effectively can starve out everything that is not approved by our 'new masters'.

    Red Yeast Rice tablets? Interesting, have to look those up! A propos, don't know if you read about the newest Plavix study? See here:

    Wow, you must either work for them or somehow managed to close your eyes completely for the shortcomings and often outright dangers of Big Pharma! Amazing!
