Cupping Therapy: Alternative Medicine for Pain, Immunity & Digestion
Relatively unknown to most people living in the West until recently, cupping therapy is an alternative therapeutic method that has been popular in China since around 1000 B.C. Some records show that variations of cupping practices might actually be much older. Cupping therapy has a host of health benefits that can often outweigh modern medicine techniques. One of the biggest advantages to trying alternative practices like cupping therapy, acupuncture or massage therapy is that these methods don’t pose the risk for unwanted side effects like pharmacological drugs or surgery do. In fact, there’s really no downside to trying alternative practices like cupping, since studies show they can help boost immune function and speed up healing time without the use of any medications or even herbs.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine - What You Need To Know
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard care. Standard care is what medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy, and allied health professionals, such as nurses and physical therapists, practice. Complementary medicine is used together with standard medical care. An example is using acupuncture to help with side effects of cancer treatment. Alternative medicine is used in place of standard medical care. An example is treating heart disease with chelation therapy (which seeks to remove excess metals from the blood) instead of using a standard approach. The claims that CAM treatment providers make can sound promising. However, researchers do not know how safe many CAM treatments are or how well they work. Studies are underway to determine the safety and usefulness of many CAM practices. To minimize the health risks of a CAM treatment Discuss it with your doctor. It might have side effects or interact with other medicines Find out what the research says about it Choose CAM practitioners carefully Tell all of your doctors and practitioners which CAM and standard treatments you use NIH: National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine

We shouldn’t use labels like “Alternative” and “Conventional” Medicine
What is alternative medicine? Does alternative medicine work? The University of Toronto recently stirred up a bit of controversy by uncritically offering a class on "Alternative Medicine." When people looked at the coursework, which included many studies debunked by this channel, some people started to freak out. The issue highlights a much larger problem: No one is sure how best to teach that subject. The dichotomy, however, between alternative and traditional medicine, or between Eastern and Western medicine, is a false one. We would be much better off if we could reframe the issue. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This episode was based on a post I wrote for the Upshot.

Fairy Tale Science and Placebo Medicine - Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)
http://facebook.com/ScienceReason ... Harriet Hall with her talk "Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM): Fairy Tale Science and Placebo Medicine", World Skeptics Congress 2012 in Berlin. Introduction by Willem Betz. --- More videos of the World Skeptics Congress will be uploaded to the following channels: • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/RationalHumanism • http://www.youtube.com/WissensMagazin Please don't forget to subscribe! Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL602E2CD13B5D203C --- Harriet Hall, MD, aka "The SkepDoc," is a retired family physician and former Air Force flight surgeon who writes prolifically about science, critical thinking, alternative medicine, and quackery. She is a CSI fellow, a contributing editor to both Skeptic and Skeptical Inquirer magazines, an editor of the Science-Based Medicine blog, an adviser to the Quackwatch website, a founding fellow of the Institute for Science in Medicine, and is on the editorial review board of the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. --- Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an artificial category covering a wide variety of treatments that are dubious, untested, or inadequately tested. Medicine that has been proven to work is just "medicine" -- not CAM. Science is the only reliable way to find out if a treatment really works, and proponents of CAM have recognized the need for scientific studies to support their claims. Unfortunately, good science requires more than just getting positive results from a controlled study. When therapies based on fantasy are studied with the tools of science, it produces confusing noise. Studying how much money the Tooth Fairy leaves under the pillow doesn't prove she exists. Pragmatic studies give an unfair advantage to treatments that have no specific effects but are dressed up like Cinderella with non-specific effects. Energy medicine modalities like Therapeutic Touch are a bit like the Emperor's New Clothes: they have impressed adults with apparently supporting studies; but a 9 year old child, Emily Rosa, pointed out their nakedness with a simple experiment showing that practitioners were deceiving themselves. Meta-analyses and systematic reviews are often flawed, especially when applied to improbable modalities. When science shows that a CAM treatment works no better than placebo, some CAM advocates accept the results but argue that we should use the treatment anyway, because placebos make patients feel better. This constitutes a double standard, because we wouldn't accept that argument for prescription drugs. Prescribing placebos is unethical, and placebo use can lead to harm in several different ways. There is only one science, and it must be rigorously applied to determine the effectiveness and safety of any treatment, whether alternative or mainstream. Recent emphasis on evidence-based medicine (EBM) is encouraging, but in practice EBM tends not to give enough consideration to basic science and prior probability. We need truly science-based medicine to determine whether CAM treatments really work. --- World Skeptics Congress: Promoting Science and Critical Thinking in a World of Uncertainty. Why do people turn to pseudoscience for help? What makes alternative medicine so attractive - and how can we find out what really works? Why is it so difficult for us to deal with risk and uncertainty in a rational way? Can we teach children to think critically and scientifically? And how can academic disciplines like biology or psychology protect themselves from pseudoscientific contamination? The 6th World Skeptics Congress in Berlin was an intellectually stimulating three-day event dealing with paranormal and supernatural claims, fringe science issues, and scams. Major topics at this event were science and pseudoscience in education, in particular anti-evolution claims and origin myths, and the problems of risk and benefit assessment, especially in alternative medicine. Gerd Antes, Wim Betz, Johan Braeckman, Edzard Ernst, Chris French, Luigi Garlaschelli, Harriet Hall, Ray Hyman, Chris Mooney, Simon Perry, Massimo Polidoro, James Randi, Gita Sahgal, Eugenie Scott, Simon Singh, Samantha Stein, Kylie Sturgess, Rebecca Watson and Tomasz Witkowski are just some of the world-renowned presenters who took part, taking apart the claims and conspiracies of the modern world. • http://www.worldskeptics.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/worldskepticscongress2012 • http://www.gwup.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/gwup.org --- Tags: complementary alternative placebo medicine cam fairy tale science treatments studies harriet hall homeopathy pseudoscience education skeptical rational critical thinking skepticism world skeptics congress 2012 berlin .

Alternative Medicine is Quackery
Filmed in India during the Debating Matters India finals, this gripping debate never fails to engage. Practitioners of modern medicine demystify and challenge alternative medicine in defence of scientific rigour, testing and the reproducibility of treatments. Advocates of alternative medicine claim a holistic approach which is person specific that can not be validated using established methods. The debate gets heated as professor Simon Wessely points out that he is a practitioner of modern medicine by day but like many parents resorts to homeopathy when he goes home. When one of his children comes home with a bruised knee from the playground he kisses it better, but he says, "this is not medicine."

Homeopathy - Debunked
Please be sure to check out GMS' wonderful content! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG1uayRlzz3ahT8ISRdyw7Q/featured This, is homeopathy – Debunked. So let’s start by explaining exactly what homeopathy is. Put simply, it’s an alternative medicine (do you know what they call alternative medicine that works? Medicine), that asserts that “illnesses can be treated with minute doses of substances that in large doses would produce symptoms of the illness. Or as the creator of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann put it ‘like cures like'. For example, Aconitum is an extremely poisonous plant that causes (among other symptoms) nausea, headaches and diarrhoea, and so homeopathic advocates assert that because influenza causes the same symptoms, a homeopathic remedy for influenza can be made from Aconitum. So with that said, you might be wondering, “How exactly is homeopathic ‘medicine’ made?” Well, to create a homeopathic remedy for influenza, for example, a homeopathic ‘technician’ grinds Aconitum into a very coarse grain, mixes it with either water, alcohol or a combination of the two, and then thoroughly shakes the solution. From here, the ‘technician’ then mixes one part of this solution with ten parts water, alcohol or a combination of the two, and then puts it through a process called ‘succession’, which is a deliberately verbose way of saying ‘it’s shaken’. And finally, this process (which is called ‘potentization’) is repeated until the solution is as diluted as desired, which is normally 30 times, which, to put this into perspective, means that you’d need to drink 8,000 gallons of the final solution to ingest one molecule of the original solution – (which is more liquid than the average person drinks in twenty years!). Anyhow, there’s just a taste of the content within the video :) And here’s the links to the research that I reference within the video. 1. Lancet: the analysis of 110 homeopathy trials and 110 matched conventional-medicine trials (found homeopathy to be no more effective than placebo): https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=16125589 2.

Alternative Medicine vs Traditional Medicine - 6  Great Reasons Millions Use …
Alternative Medicine vs Traditional Medicine - 6 Great Reasons Millions Use … Alternative Medicine vs Traditional Medicine debate has been discussed forever. Firstly let me tell you a few facts. Based on The National Health Interview Survey, In the United States, around 38 percent of people or 4 in 10, and about 12% of youngsters or 1 in 9, are utilizing some type of CAM. also known as (complementary and alternative medicine).

One good reason that numerous people use alternative medicine is that it is commonplace. For instance, the use of herbal treatments to keep up total wellness or to make home remedies, making it readily available and cost-effective for a large selection of people. 2. Mind and body methods, for instance yoga and meditation can be effortlessly utilized at home with no expense often seen with traditional medicine practices. Here’s a great Yoga Mat to start: https://amzn.to/2UGzRHA To print the methods or recipes, you can download a text version of this video here: 3. Value. An associated explanation is that alternative medicine is usually less expensive than traditional medicine. People who may have trouble spending on medical bills may be attracted to the relatively inexpensive, alternative medicine. 4. All-natural Techniques In Healing Prescription medication usage is at an all-time high in the United States, and sometimes individuals grumble that the first ‘go to’ of their physician is to write a script. 5. Most all of the remedies used in CAM are natural and organic, this is far from the often chemically dependent treatments seen in traditional medicine. This consists of but is not restricted to, herbs, essential oils, diet, health supplements, chiropractic treatment, mind-body practices and naturopathy. InnoGear 500ml Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser Wood Grain Aroma Diffusers Cool Mist Humidifier here: https://amzn.to/2Y0ZMMa This does not always mean that CAM is a remedy for any and all conditions, but it can offer all-natural alternatives and often compliments traditional medicine tools. 6. Improved Life Quality and Unwanted Effects Of Treatment Another significant reason people use alternative medicine is that it can enhance quality of life and reduce side effects of conventional medical treatment. When persons endure serious health problems or chronic ailments, inevitably their life quality suffers, and side effects of conventional medicine treatments bring unnecessary problems. CAM can help. As an example, Music Therapy is often used in serious pain relief, which can be helpful for conditions for example arthritis and other long-term pain syndromes. Cancer.gov reports that acupuncture is helpful in reducing the side effects of cancer treatment.

Some of the therapies used in CAM, including Acupuncture, Ayurveda, Homeopathy and Herbalism have been around in for centuries. Recent Reports. One last reason that an increasing number of people trust alternative medicine, is that the reasons not to believe it, are dissolving.

What is Alternative medicine
What is Alternative medicine. The meaning of Alternative medicine pronunciation Alternative medicine definition Alternative medicine How to say Alternative medicine Alternative medicine , fringe medicine , pseudomedicine or simply questionable medicine is the use and promotion of practices which are unproven, disproven, impossible to prove, or excessively harmful in relation to their effect — in the attempt to achieve the healing effects of medicine. They differ from experimental medicine in that the latter employs responsible investigation, and accepts results that show it to be ineffective. The scientific consensus is that alternative therapies either do not, or cannot, work. In some cases laws of nature are violated by their basic claims; in some the treatment is so much worse that its use is unethical. Alternative practices, products, and therapies range from only ineffective to having known harmful and toxic effects. Alternative therapies may be credited for perceived improvement through placebo effects, decreased use or effect of medical treatment (and therefore either decreased side effects; or nocebo effects towards standard treatment), or the natural course of the condition or disease. Alternative treatment is not the same as experimental treatment or traditional medicine, although both can be misused in ways that are alternative. Alternative or complementary medicine is dangerous because it may discourage people from getting the best possible treatment, and may lead to a false understanding of the body and of science. Alternative medicine is used by a significant number of people, though its popularity is often overstated. Large amounts of funding go to testing alternative medicine, with more than US$2.5 billion spent by the United States government alone. Almost none show any effect beyond that of false treatment, and most studies showing any effect have been statistical flukes. Alternative medicine is a highly profitable industry, with a strong lobby. This fact is often overlooked by media or intentionally kept hidden, with alternative practice being portrayed positively when compared to "big pharma". The lobby has successfully pushed for alternative therapies to be subject to far less regulation than conventional medicine. Alternative therapies may even be allowed to promote use when there is demonstrably no effect, only a tradition of use. Regulation and licensing of alternative medicine and health care providers varies between and within countries. Despite laws making it illegal to market or promote alternative therapies for use in cancer treatment, many practitioners promote them. Alternative medicine is criticized for taking advantage of the weakest members of society. For example, the United States National Institutes of Health department studying alternative medicine, currently named National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, was established as the Office of Alternative Medicine and was renamed the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine before obtaining its current name. Therapies are often framed as "natural" or "holistic", in apparent opposition to conventional medicine which is "artificial" and "narrow in scope", statements which are intentionally misleading. When used together with functional medical treatment, alternative therapies do not "complement" (improve the effect of, or mitigate the side effects of) treatment. Significant drug interactions caused by alternative therapies may instead negatively impact functional treatment, making it less effective, notably in cancer. Alternative diagnoses and treatments are not part of medicine, or of science- based curricula in medical schools, nor are they used in any practice based on scientific knowledge or experience. Alternative therapies are often based on religious belief, tradition, superstition, belief in supernatural energies, pseudoscience, errors in reasoning, propaganda, fraud, or lies. Alternative medicine is based on misleading statements, quackery, pseudoscience, antiscience, fraud, and poor scientific methodology. Promoting alternative medicine has been called dangerous and unethical. Testing alternative medicine that has no scientific basis has been called a waste of scarce research resources. Critics state that "there is really no such thing as alternative medicine, just medicine that works and medicine that doesn't", that the very idea of "alternative" treatments is paradoxical, as any treatment proven to work is by definition "medicine".Thanks for Watching please like and subscribe!

Is Alternative Medicine Right For You?
Is Alternative Medicine Right For You? Americans spend $325 billion yearly on prescription medications. These medicines can be miracles, but they also frequently have side effects. In the past few years, there has been a big movement of people exploring alternative options for managing their illnesses-- anything from chronic diseases to the common cold. The 9th volume of the International Classification of Diseases currently has 12,000 diseases documented. Next year, in ICD 10, there will be 225,000-- 12 times the current amount. Some doctors believe that treating the disease isn't the right approach. "We need to have more health and less healthcare," said Dr. James Barry of Springboro. He combines modern medicine with holistic practices like acupuncture. "Basically everything works the same. It's just a matter of what works for you", said Dr. Barry on when to consider alternative medicine. Acupuncture, Reiki, reflexology, and Thai massage are popular therapies used especially for pain relief. Most doctors are hesitant to recommend alternative medicine and therapies because there is not a lot of research on their effectiveness. Although they can be clinically effective, without researched evidence, doctors are weary to have a patient rely on such therapies. However, we found that most doctors are open to considering alternative medicine and holistic practices for patients who's conventional treatment is not working or causing severe side effects. "Alternative medicines have a role to play in diseases, but as an adjunct to main medication. I definitely think more research needs to be done on this subject, more studies to see how beneficial these therapies are," said Dr. Rajkamal Jit of Digestive Specialists in Dayton. Dr. Jit said alternative medicine can be very beneficial if used as a complimentary treatment with traditional medicine. Always consult your doctor before considering alternative medicine.

Integrative Medicine Tyler TX - Natural Healing - Alternative Healing
Alternative medicine is any healing practice "that does not fall within the realm of conventional medicine" (Bratman, MD, Steven (1997). The Alternative Medicine Sourcebook. Lowell House. p. 7). It is frequently grouped with complementary medicine, which generally refers to the same interventions when used in conjunction with mainstream techniques, under the umbrella term complementary and alternative medicine, or CAM (Cassileth BR, Deng G (2004). "Complementary and alternative therapies for cancer". The Oncologist 9 (1): 80--9 and The Desktop Guide to Complementary and Alternative Medicine). Holistic medicine is a concept in medical practice upholding that all aspects of people's needs, psychological, physical and social, should be taken into account and seen as a whole. As defined above, the holistic view on treatment is widely accepted in medicine. Studies indicate that alternative approaches are often used in conjunction with conventional medicine. This is referred to as integrative (or integrated) medicine because it "combines treatments from conventional medicine and CAM for which there is some high-quality evidence of safety and effectiveness." According to Andrew T. Weil M.D., a leading proponent of integrative medicine, the principles of integrative medicine include: appropriate use of conventional and CAM methods; patient participation; promotion of health as well as treatment of disease; and a preference for natural, minimally-invasive methods.

Maybe your friend uses acupuncture to relieve migraines. Or, you know someone who relies on herbal medicines and massage to deal with chronic pain. Alternative medicine is any form of medicine used instead of the standard (conventional) medicine. It might include Traditional Chinese Medicine, homeopathy, or naturopathy, for example. Don't confuse alternative medicine with complementary medicine. Complementary medicine is any form of medicine used in addition to standard medicine. If you choose to try an alternative medicine, just be sure to do your research to find a qualified practitioner. 1 Try ayurveda. This ancient Indian alternative medicine relies on herbs and dietary practices. The goal of ayurveda is to balance the body and mind to prevent disease. Ayurveda practitioners believe there are three main body energies (vata, pitta, and kapha) that cause disease when they become unbalanced. To balance the energies and treat illness, ayurveda uses:[1] Stress relief like breathing exercises Vegetarian diet Meditation Yoga Body cleanses Herbal medicines 2 Consider Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is another ancient alternative medicine that uses a variety of treatments to balance the life force or energy of the body. TCM practitioners believe illness is caused by major energy points becoming blocked. Specifically, disease is thought to be caused by your emotions, your environment, and your lifestyle (like your diet). To open energy points, restore balance, and treat illness, TCM uses:[2] Herbal medicines Acupuncture and acupressure Nutrition Moxibustion (burning herbs) Massage 3 Learn about homeopathy. This system of medicine is over 200 years old and its goal is to help the body heal itself. Homeopathy uses tiny doses of various substances like herbs, minerals, or animal products to help the body balance itself and cure disease.[3] For example, studies have shown that taking small doses of local bee pollen can reduce allergy symptoms.[4] Since the doses of substances are small, there are no side effects, making homeopathy a safe alternative medicine.[5] In addition to trying to treat physical symptoms, homeopathy also tries to balance a person's emotional state and constitution.

Much of the research on alternative medicine for cancer has examined the therapies' ability to alleviate side effects of conventional treatments. Here are some of the latest ideas on the uses of complementary and alternative medicine for people with liver cancer: 1. Acupuncture Studies have shown that acupuncture can help with nausea and vomiting among people with cancer. Nausea is a common side effect of chemotherapy, and nausea can be especially problematic for people with liver cancer. In addition to nausea caused by chemotherapy, “liver cancer patients can experience nausea related to the cancer itself because of where it is located,” 2. Herbs Milk thistle, a Mediterranean herb, has been used for centuries to treat liver problems. “Research is currently being done on milk thistle’s effect on liver toxicity from chemotherapy. 3. Exercise Yoga and tai chi may help patients overcome the fatigue that is commonly associated with liver cancer. “You have to be careful that you can tolerate certain positions," Mansky points out, "but as long as it’s done under the supervision of an experienced teacher, it can be helpful. 4. Diet A healthy diet is essential for all cancer patients, but it is especially important for those with liver cancer. “The liver is one of the main organs in the digestive process. If liver function is decreased, you have a more difficult time with digestion.” A diet rich in whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, especially green, leafy ones, can help promote digestion. 5. Massage Liver cancer patients can sometimes experience edema, swelling that occurs when fluids build up in the body. In people with liver cancer, edema tends to affect the legs, ankles, and feet. Massage, when administered by a licensed, experienced massage therapist, who is knowledgeable about treating cancer patients, can help to relieve swelling. “There are no specific data on liver cancer.

Natural Cure for Depression, Bipolar, ADHD, Schizophrenia
This alternative therapy employs vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to create optimum nutritional content for the body, as well as the right environment and equilibrium. Like most alternative medicine techniques, orthomolecular medicine targets a wide range of conditions. [depression, bipolar, adhd, schizophrenia, add, addiction, alcoholism, drug addiction...] Orthomolecular medicine was developed by Linus Pauling, Ph.D., winner of two Nobel prizes, in 1968. It is designed to enable individuals to reach the apex of health and the peak of their performance by utilizing only naturally occurring substances (e.g. vitamins, minerals, enzymes, trace elements, co-enzymes). The proper balance of these substances in the body is the key to reaching physical, mental, and emotional health and stability. Orthomolecular medicine can be used therapeutically to treat diseases such as cancer and AIDS, or preventatively to impede the progress of degenerative disease and aging. When all is said and done, however, the main objective of orthomolecular medicine is to help the patient reach an optimal level of health; his or her self-esteem will probably improve in the process. Although orthomolecular medicine did not fully develop into a therapy until the late 1960's when Pauling coined the term "orthomolecular," the premise behind this practice originated in the 1920's, when vitamins and minerals were first used to treat illnesses unrelated to nutrient deficiency. It was discovered that vitamin A could prevent childhood deaths from infectious illness, and that heart arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) could be stopped by dosages of magnesium. Hard scientific evidence supporting nutritional therapy did not emerge, however, until the 1950's, when Abram Hoffer, M.D., and Humphrey Osmond, M.D., began treating schizophrenics with high doses of vitamin B3 (niacin). As a consequence of their studies, it was revealed that niacin, in combination with other medical treatments, could double the number of recoveries in a one-year period. Eventually, it was determined that malnutrition and consumption of refined, empty-calorie foods such as white bread and pastries and overconsumption of sugar could yield disease and psychiatric disorders. It became apparent that a person's diet was an overwhelmingly integral part of his or her health and well-being. Further studies showed that decreased intake of dietary fiber, bran, minerals, and complex carbohydrates was prevalent in patients with certain forms of mental illness, accompanied by a loss of vitamins and an increase in dietary fat. Biochemical individual is a main principle of orthomolecular medicine. This principle was elucidated by Roger J. Williams, Ph.D. This principle is quite simple: every living organism is unique! Furthermore, each individual requires different relative amounts of nutrients for his or her satisfaction and optimal level of health. The government sets a minimum recommended daily allowance (RDA) which is supposed to be adequate for all individuals. However, many may need to exceed the RDA as well as the recommended 2,000 calorie diet in order to prevent severe deficiency disease. Thus, RDA values are not perfect guidelines for everyone. Several studies have proven the existence of biochemical individuality. For example, studies of guinea pigs showed a twentyfold variation in their requirement for vitamin C. A study conducted with human subjects revealed that children have varying needs for vitamin B6.

Coaches Tips | Complementary and Alternative Medicine ...
This was going to be my first post a few years ago when I started #EvidenceBasedLifting however I thought it best to stick to fitness. Unfortunately, this topic now hits close to home and I absolutely hate seeing people conned out of their money when being sold false hope. To the studies.. Risberg et al., in 2003 observed 515 cancer patients over an 8 year period. "... adjusted for demographic, disease and treatment factors, the hazard ratio of death for any use of Alternative Medicine (AM) compared with no use was 1.30, suggesting that AM use may predict a shorter survival." The patients Performance Status (PS) or Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) is a universal tool to measure functionality of a patient - can the take care of them-self, can they work, etc. Risberg et al., found that even in patients with a good PS score, using alternative medicine predicted a earlier death. So yes, cancer patients die earlier when using alternative medicine. Yun et al., in 2013 looked at the quality of life of caner patients who used alternative medicine compared to patients who did not. We mentioned earlier that those who used alternative medicine died sooner and Yun et al., found the same conclusion. They also established that in their shorter life span they had a lower quality of life. "In a follow-up of 481 patients and 163.8 person-years, we identified 466 deceased cases... Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) users did not have better survival compared with nonusers... Clinically, CAM users reported significantly worse cognitive functioning... While CAM did not provide any definite survival benefit, CAM users reported clinically significant worse HRQOLs [survival and health-related quality of life]. So yes, you die sooner and have a lower quality of life. Also, while you're here - acupuncture is equally as effective as being poked with a toothpick... Vitamin C does not cure cancer. No self respecting person in a position to help would charge someone stricken with cancer $150 for IV Vitamin C. All you're selling is false hope and expensive pee. But don't just take my word for it. Here's a few lines from a 2014 systematic review regarding vitamin C and cancer. "Of 696 identified records, 61 full-text articles were screened and 34 were included. In total, 5 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) (n = 322), 12 phase I/II trials (n = 287), 6 observational studies (n = 7,599), and 11 case reports (n = 267) were identified." "Evidence for ascorbate’s antitumor effects was limited to case reports and observational and uncontrolled studies." "There is no high-quality evidence to suggest that ascorbate supplementation in cancer patients either enhances the antitumor effects of chemotherapy or reduces its toxicity." Remember, cancer patients who only use alternative medicine die sooner and have a lower quality of life (see my previous post). Carmel Jacobs et al., Is There a Role for Oral or Intravenous Ascorbate (Vitamin C) in Treating Patients With Cancer? A Systematic Review. The Oncologist. January 2015. Risburg T et al., Does use of alternative medicine predict survival from cancer? European Journal of Cancer. February 2003 Yun Y.

Trigeminal Neuralgia Treatment -- Alternative Medicine to Treat and Prevent It!
http://utahtexans.com/ Click on the link above for a free video guide to dietary supplements and alternative medicine! Some experts feel that trigeminal neuralgia is the most painful health problem someone can have. In this video I'm going to share alternative medicine ideas on treating it as well as how to prevent getting it. What system in your body is mainly responsible for pain? Yep, it's the nervous system. It informs us that there is a problem such as our hand touching a hot pan. Of course pain isn't the best of feelings right?   What if this system goes haywire and doesn't act correctly? It could continually give someone pain, which isn't good and that is what happens with this condition. Every so often shooting pain erupts in the face from a nerve called the trigeminal nerve.   Some people describe it as bursts of sharp, electric shocks that last a couple of seconds to minutes. The worst part is that oftentimes it's unpredictable. This makes any activity not as enjoyable because it might be interrupted by shooting pains.   Can you guess what some of the most common treatments are? Yea, prescription drugs are a very common remedy that could be effective. Of course there are some negative side effects that should be considered. Next is surgery which can also be expensive and there are risks involved.   When it comes to alternative medicine one idea is acupuncture. In theory how it works is by helping energy or chi flow easier. Some people believe that if this chi energy gets disturbed that it can cause diseases. Not everyone agrees that acupuncture fights diseases, but many people do feel it can reduce pain from a wide variety of health problems including this trigeminal neuralgia.   Another idea would be visiting a chiropractor. How a chiropractor may be able to help is by realigning the bones in the upper spine. The nerve that causes the pain called the trigeminal nerve passes alongside the first bone in the neck called the Atlas when it heads to the face.   If something is pressing on that nerve, a realignment might be able to help with the pressure and the pain. There could be other causes as well, but it comes down to a nerve that isn't acting correctly.   Also there is something called alpha-stim therapy that could relieve nerve pain. How it can work is by sending a small electric current through the nervous system. Some people feel it helps, but more studies are needed to determine how effective it really is.   If you're interested in preventing nerve damage as well as heal them you could try omega 3 fats. In a clinical study at Queen Mary University in England researchers isolated nerve cells by mice. Then they caused damage to the cells or starved them of oxygen. Doing this killed off many of the cells, but nerve cells that were enriched with omega 3 had significant protection and a decrease in cell death.   Another idea to prevent nerve problems is by taking a good multivitamin supplement. There are certain vitamins such as vitamin B that plays a huge role in the health of nerves. In fact low levels of vitamin B12 have been linked to facial neuralgia according to the 14th Congress of the International Headache Society. As you know there are tons of choices for supplements. They all kind of say the same thing. So which one do you choose and buy? Well to make things easier for you I've created a report and video guide on this. These guides shares 10 signs that a supplement should not be purchased and a lot more such as herbs made simple and alternative medicine ideas. The best thing is it's free to learn more click on the link http://utahtexans.com/.

Cancer Cure with Baking Soda? Cancer Causes, Research and Natural Therapies
http://www.normalbreathing.com/cancer1.php - Amazon Kindle Book About Cancer by Dr. Artour Rakhimov "Doctors Who Cure Cancer" - http://www.amazon.com/Doctors-Who-Cure-Cancer-ebook/dp/B007IZZ4AQ/ Can baking soda cure cancer? Is a cure for cancer found? What are the cancer causes? Are there any medical research studies or alternative natural therapies for treatment of cancer? How can sodium bicarbonate influence tumors? Dr. Tullio Simoncini (Italy) uses baking soda as a cure or treatment of cancer tumors. These are the topics discussed in this video. Russian and Ukrainian doctors found the medical cancer cure: no conspiracy and no gimmicks. This video does not include 3D animation yet. Medical research suggests that cancer is based and caused by low oxygen levels in cells or tissue hypoxia. Of course, there are other factors like smoking that can lead to lung cancer, heredity that increases chances of breast cancer or prostate cancer or blood cancer, diet that can lead to throat or stomach or colon cancers and so forth. These factors are also important in understanding cancer causes and search for cure for cancer. However, body oxygenation is the key factor Note that I am talking about body oxygenation since it is not just tumors, but the whole body hypoxia is required for appearance of cancer cells. Hence, cancer sure requires normal body oxygenation. How could baking soda or sodium bicarbonate influence body and tumor oxygenation? It releases CO2 or carbon dioxide. CO2 is dilator of blood vessels or vasodilator. It is also crucial for release of oxygen in cells due to the Bohr effect. More information about cancer research, cancer causes, and natural alternative therapies for cancer cure: http://www.normalbreathing.com/diseases-cancer.php . These are the key factors that increase oxygen transport to cancer cells in case when Dr. Tullio Simoncini (Italy) injects baking soda solution into the artery leading to the tumor. Therefore, baking soda cancer treatment therapy works due to increased CO2 levels in the blood that increase oxygen delivery to the cancer cells. Cancer patients breathe much more than both norms. Furthermore, respiratory rate (breathing frequency) of cancer patients, as many studies have found, is an independent predictor of their mortality. Overbreathing or hyperventilation in people with cancer causes low CO2 levels in the arterial blood and reduces oxygen levels in their bodies and tumors. Other natural alternative treatment therapies are based on increased body oxygenation due to breathing retraining techniques, such as the Oxygen Remedy, Buteyko method, Frolov breathing device, and some other techniques that can be used for cancer cure. Find more about them since they are much more effective in treatment of cancer than foods and diets. What about diets and foods to cure cancers? You can eat tons of supplements, vitamin B17 and super-foods, drink canisters of herbal drinks, have hundreds of colonic irrigation procedures, and practice yoga for many hours every day, but if your body oxygen level remains the same, you will suffer from the same symptoms and require the same dosage of medication. Experience of hundreds of people using the Buteyko breathing therapy suggests that cancer tumors naturally disappear, if one gets more than 40 seconds for the body oxygen test 24/7. Here is the link to the clinical trial on metastasized breast cancer with breathing retraining (no medical conspiracies): http://www.normalbreathing.com/diseases-cancer-1-clinical-trial.php . Other types of cancer, like prostate cancer, blood cancer, stomach cancer, throat and lung cancers can also be addressed with these techniques.

Is There an Alternative Medicine?
Transcript: Hello and welcome. I'm Dr. George Lundberg and this is At Large at MedPage Today. There is no Alternative Medicine. Thus sprach Phil Fontanarosa and me in a 1998 JAMA editorial in the famous theme issue dedicated to Complementary and Alternative Medicine ... hmmm. So I went to Mr. Google in 2010 and entered ... Alternative Medicine ... and clicked -- 41,200,000 results, uuooo; entered Complementary and Alternative Medicine, click -- 3,210,000 results; entered CAM, click -- 191,000,000 results, but that's not fair; CAM can stand for many unrelated topics. Let's try quackery on Mr. Google, click -- "only" 818,000 results. Hmm. Meanwhile, back to that 1998 JAMA editorial. "There is no alternative medicine. There is only scientifically proven, evidence-based medicine supported by solid data or unproven medicine, for which scientific evidence is lacking." But actually there are three piles:You have a test or treatment that has itself been tested and found to be safe and effective. Use it; pay for it.You have a test or treatment that has been found to be unsafe or ineffective. Don't use it; don't pay for it.You have a test or treatment that is scientifically plausible, meaning not preposterous. Test it AND then put it into one of the other two piles. This 1998 JAMA theme issue is credited or blamed by many with opening the door for conversation, study, and serious research. It even promoted respectful consideration of the practices of patients and practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine, since the practices were common, communication almost nonexistent, and understanding veiled at best. What has happened since 1998? A large amount of serious research into previously unstudied practices, largely funded by the NIH, has resulted in many articles in mainstream journals. And, guess what, almost ALL of the long-term traditional CAM practices have been found to be safe but INEFFECTIVE. And what has happened in practice? The American Medical Marketing Machine (AMMM) has done its thing. As the published scientific studies have one by one found CAM practices to be ineffective, more Americans are using CAM than ever. And, such use often is now in mainstream institutions, sterilized, and sold as "Integrative Medicine," which Mr. Google numbers at 1,230,000 results. Looks like there will always be snake oil sellers as long as there are snake oil buyers. That's my opinion. I'm Dr. George Lundberg, At Large for MedPage Today.
