It’s publicised constantly, the lawsuits never stop in the public eye. Hell I’ve been in two class action lawsuits over medication side effects. Evidence-based medicine is still the way to go and until there’s double-blinded randomized controlled trials of a treatment for a disease, it should never be recommended over proven treatments, it breaks some of the most fundamental ethics of healing.
IF thousands have been cured of a deadly disease, by a “folk medicine” for which there has been no funding (millions of dollars) for FDA approval, (and there won’t be because there is no profit in the treatment), AND you or a loved one comes down with that disease, would you use it?
I have used many simple nutrients to fix “unfixable” illnesses, for which no major studies will ever be funded by Pharmaceutical Companies, because there is no profit in it. I for one haven’t and won’t wait for the FDA to approve the use of many natural remedies that are safe and effective…because it may never come.
Personally as a Chiropractor I have been treating and correcting problems that the Medical Community has said didn’t exist with a treatment that the Medical Community said doesn’t work. If I had waited for the OK from standard medical practice, I would still be waiting to treat my first patient.
We each have to make our own choices, and I respect your right to set your own standards.
