Alternative and Complimentary medicine

7 posts in this topic

I've seen several posts to the effect of "no one is studying these treatments," or "there's no research being done."

A website for your information:

http://nccam.nih.gov.

This is a site by the National Institite of Health to study alternative therapies.

There's been a very intense interest in alternative therapies in many corners of the traditional medical community. I'm hoping that once I get my degree and am licensed, I can start working in that field to further this.

Unfortunately, since naturopathic remedies (herbs, etc.) can't be patented, there's been little interest up until recently. But so many people are using alternative therapies in recent years that it can't be ignored by doctors anymore (partially because they're starting to lose a lot of money due to it).

If that's true, than WHY is the NIH spending money on it?

Thanks for exposing your bigotry and ignorance. :wall:

Follow up: Acne doesn't seem to be high on NIH's research priority list. Let's give them some feedback! Go to the sight and ask for Acne to be given some research money.

Am I the only one who finds that string of logic odd?

What's odd? Your paranoid delusional world has a conspiracy against researching alternative treatments and prevention. The National Institute of Health is devoting a lot of research to finding out if they work. Therefore, we can conclude that your don't know what you are talking about. Is that clear for you?

You may ask yourself. Why don't the people who sell this stuff do the research, you know kinda like a drug company would? The answer: They are making lots of money selling it already. All a study could do was prove that what they are selling doesn't work. Poof. There goes the free and easy money stream.
