There is also the paranoia mindset regarding many in the holistic community. A lot of that shit IS quackery. I can remember so many people talking about colloidal silver……….then I saw that guy that freakin’ turned blue! And its permanent.
Over the years, a number of stories/studies have come up regarding harm from certain holistic treatments.
But I would argue that there’s no funding because there’s no real belief in this. Remember also, the pharmaceutical industry also comes up with meds that treat very rare conditions. They know they’ll never make a profit from those types of meds (they already have their all-star money makers), but they do it in the interest of helping people…….seriously.
