Something to nibble on..

There are a number of alternative healing therapies that work so well and cost so little (compared to conventional treatment), that Organized Medicine, the Food & Drug Administration, and their overlords in the Pharmaceutical Industry (The Big Three) would rather the public not know about them. The reason is obvious: Alternative, non-toxic therapies represent a potential loss of billions of dollars to allopathic (drug) medicine and drug companies.

The thrust of the orthodox pharmaceutical agenda is to provide temporary relief, while never addressing the cause of the disease condition. This agenda insures regular visits to the doctor’s office and requires the patient to routinely return to the pharmacy to refill his prescriptions. This is what the game is all about folks, plain and simple. Deny it or Deal with it,…Stick with it or Get Out of it! … your choice.

A cured patient is a lost source of income. A sick patient who is marginally “improved” is a manageable patient

Unlike ‘miracle drugs’ and other ‘drug breakthroughs’, you will never see or hear anything from mainstream media about most of the therapies described here. The Big Three see to that, but you can still glean this information from the alternative health press, books, web sites, and at health expos. Some of these alternative therapies require high-tech equipment and specialized knowledge, but many, many others can be done at home without third party intervention or supervision. It’s amazing, but true, that many of the most effective healing therapies (even for grave, life-threatening disease conditions) are simple things that you can do for yourself at home. You simply have to educate yourself and take responsibility for your own health.

In general, I agree but here is an excerpt from that link which shows why this crap isn’t widely accepted. It’s not all because of the FDA, it’s because some of these naturopaths are a little weird.

Armstong’s approach is simpler: To resolve life-threatening disease conditions, drink every drop of your own urine and neither eat nor drink anything else until you are completely well!! In his book, Armstong provides the history of many, many patients with a variety of serious conditions (cancers, massive infections, heart conditions, etc.) who were frequently near The End. In some cases, the patient was so gravely disabled, that he couldn’t produce any urine of his own. In those cases, Armstong would ‘jump start’ the patient with his own urine. Afterwards, the patient was able to produce a small amount of his own. With each subsequent ingestion of urine, the patient would gain in both strength and relief from pain. For the most serious cases, patients drank nothing but their own urine for periods of 90, 120, 150 days! Some, even longer. Armstrong points out that rubbing the body with old urine (for a substantial period of time, E.g.1-2 hours) is a necessary adjunct treatment to ingestion in very serious cases. In less severe cases, rubbing with old urine will clear up most skin conditions and produce a smooth, blemish-free skin if applied regularly (ladies, take note).

It sounds like some urine fetish to me :smiley:

This is my take (keep in mind I have had great success with prolotherapy, which is considered waaaay non-mainstream.)

With non-mainstream medicine a lot what is being pushed does not work. Unfortantely there are many things that work 100%… but the chances of the average person being able to find what works and sifting through all the crap would be about the same chances of finding a needle in a hay stack the size of a football field.

On the other hand, the problem with mainstream medicine is the stuff that the works also destroys you in the process. Take for instance chemotherapy which shrinks cancer cells, but can also start new ones (according to the Harvard journal of medicine). Or anti imflammatories which block pain messages to brain, but destroy your kidney and liver in the process. There are probably many practioners who want to take a different route, but do not want to be black-balled by the FDA. Plus, they also risk losing their medical liscence if they do so.

Mainstream medicine does have its advantages though. For instance, when you go to a good hospital the amount of tests they have available, pet-scans, cat scans, virus tests, and so on are so much more numerous than non- mainstream. They have more money to perform these tests. Some of the non-traditional med doctors can barely afford their own clinic let alone perform the tests needed to help their patients. Even mainstream family doctors struggle to make ends-meat.

Unfortanately, they are both flawed. Just like everything else in life. There is really nothing in this life which is one hundred percent accurate. Just look at the dem and repub parties, any open-minded person can tell that both of these parties are completely corrupt. That being said, Guy prefers an apple over a prescription any day.


“There are probably many practitioners who want to take a different route, but do not want to be black-balled by the FDA. Plus, they also risk losing their medical license if they do so.”

A doctor being black balled becasue he wants to use an alternative approch is criminal!

As far as I’m concerned; just like evolution a combination of both ideologies should yield the best results.

If a plant can cure my illness and cause me no harm, I will take it. If a man made drug in a small amount will cure my illness then then I will take that too but to push doctors in a corner and force them to sell synthetic drugs ONLY is just plain wrong. At that point its not about the patient anymore its about wall street and they know it.

Speaking on cancer there is a really good short movie that you can watch if you have time.

Here is is:
