Top ten things you should know about alternative medicine

I found this to be a good summary of what's wrong with the alternative medicine industry today. My personal belief is that I won't touch any medication or practice that can't/won't stand up to a double-blind study.

was talking about this with a co-worker ... another problem with alternative medicine is finding good and honest practitioners.

Accupuncture/AccuPressure are proven therapies that can work many cures ... but just because the guy has a storefront, is asian and has a Chinese sounding name doesn't mean he knows what he's doing.

One of the hallmark of the less than honest is them saying it will take a full course of treatments before you notice any change ... a course being 15-20 sessions each charged individually. Some marked and measurable improvement should be evident after each visit including the first one, even if it is only slight.
I'm living in the Shadows and the Night,
Wrapped in warm darkness, safe and sure.
My Path shines by the Moon's fragile light,
It frees my Mind and keeps my Heart pure.
