我最近碰到這個來 文章 我們應該如何多了很多關注 替代 藥品不是我們一直. 也許我應該更直言不諱這個自己. 只有極少數的人知道我其實懶得去遊說他們相信的原因. 它是一種恥辱.

靈氣 最近想出了在 怪胎晚宴 它讓我進入研究一些其他的補充和替代醫學的. 靈氣聽起來像一個精心製作的 安慰劑 如果你問我 – 所以做了很多其他的替代藥物的. 有一些這樣的,我以前認為是完全合法. 看來我應該更懷疑我自己的信息存儲.

一些替代醫學的途徑,我相信到其中的現代世界需要做一些進一步的科學篩選:

  • 同種療法 – 稀釋物質,不那麼有害,但不會使其不太有利. Bulldust.
  • 針刺經絡穴位 有沒有醫學現代生理意義. 這涉及到的概念 Qi 在能量醫學.
  • 能量醫學 – 在身體的能量或齊領域影響您的健康. 定影, 破壞, 或操縱這些領域的流動會影響你身體的自愈和抵抗疾病的能力. 這歸結於從業者自稱執行 魔法.
  • 虹膜 – 這是用於診斷疾病. 改變在 具體 你的虹膜的部分表示什麼類型的疾病可能會影響你的身體. 在你的身體你的眼睛跟踪病情和究竟如何,可以給你的醫生 “整我” 願望單在彩色逐數字格式?

    I think all medicine needs to be reviewed with a handful of scepticism. Modern Scientific medicine has it’s downfalls, i.e. chemicals and surgeries etc. are only tested against side effects which researchers consider (in time this obviously roots out all problems). We end up withmedicineswhich are scientifically tested pulled after years of being consideredsafe” (e.g. MDMA).

    I have a BSc and I took the plunge and took a basic course in Reiki to see how it works. It may be a placebo, but it works as effectively for many things as medication would have. I have a healthy view of it, and I would not claim it can heal a dismembered limb, but I don’t think it can be thrown out as a practice because it looks the same as the placebo effect.

    As far as meridian/energy therapies go, they are the eastern equivalent of western medicine’s approach to problem solving. In the west the ideology is dissection to solve problems, the east has an ideology of approaching the problem wholistically. Think of it as a macro and micro approach to problem solving. Acupuncture may have no physiological link, but has been refined over generations of practitioners and has been shown in scientific studies to have observable impacts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acupuncture_point#Evidence_from_neuroimaging_studies ). And if the model proposed in acupuncture for tending a body’s Qi is shown to have efficacy, but not necessarily explainable using the morphophysiological model, should we discount it because it doesn’t fit those assumptions (which have become dominant in the world today)?

    I am not saying all therapies are kosher, but I am saying be sceptical of information written from one paradigm’s frame of reference, criticising another paradigm. And treat medical science with a healthy amount of scepticism centered around the limitations that are inherent to the scientific model of discovery.

    My testament to acupuncture is watching my son’s eczema literally disappear overnight (after persisting for months) after a ‘laser acupuncturesession. Maybe it was a placebo, but I have a hard time believing that my 1 year old understood what the qualified medical doctor (who includes acupuncture in his range of treatements) was doing, in order to be affected by a placebo.

    The autonomous response to acupuncture can be beneficial. In a sense, this is the doctor manipulating the body into healing itself.

    A pin prick can cause more pain than the damage warrants, causing the body toover”-retaliate. 只, we actually *want* the body to do this.

    There is a lot of ongoing research in this field and I believe that acupuncture, as we know it, will soon (是 50 years soon enough?) be replaced with something much more scientific as its basis.

  3. You said it, sir. As for homeopathy, I think even those who see it for the tripe it actually don’t know the extent of it. For a very interesting dig into its history, see:

    My smugly-scientific core is secretly thrilled when homeopath devotees who are (不幸的是) seriously ill suddenly regain faith in mainstream science.

    A lot of homeopathic remedies have a grain of truth at their core, but what point is there eating twigs and berries when you can take a tablet of the distilled active ingredient IN those twigs and berries, under controlled circumstances, for a more potent and immediate effect?

    Just because something is man-made does not mean it is inferior to nature’s so-called alternative. But you know, if tree-hugging is your thing, you eat the silverleaf berries, and I’ll take the penicillin, thanks.

    Hey there Tricky. It’s always good to see people questioning the alternative medicine market. There is a lot less evidence than many people would have you to believe and very often negative findings are misinterpreted as being äs good as placebo”.

    Helen, you seem to have confused homeopathic remedies with natural or herbal medicines. No homeopathic remedies have a grain of truth in them. They are based on principles which openly defy the fundamental aspects of physics.

    Acupuncture also has no demonstrable effect, other than placebo, and is also based on unscientific beliefs which were fostered by a society which forbade dissection of corpses and so led to magical thinking instead of understanding based on evidence.

    There is, 當然, much more information involved than I can convey in a comment, so ask any questions, present your best evidence and I will be happy to investigate and answer for you.
