I use chiropractic, occasional acupuncture, and some homeopathic meds. If you want to throw rocks at me, feel free. I wouldn’t do them if they had not worked for me when “traditional” medicine had failed.

So there.

You do you, not going to throw any stones. I just decided for me a long time ago that science is the best means we have to understand the world around us, be that GM foods, Climate science, medicine, whatever. Is science perfect, no, but it is the only method we have that is self correcting and gets better and better over time.

Alternative “medicine” may seem benign and if it makes your cold, or sore back or whatever feel better what’s the big deal. The problem is when someone decides “hey that homeopathic remedy worked for my cold, maybe it can cure my pancreatic cancer”
