Kate - sorry, but I don't get that one! o.o

OP - I've often found myself wondering if decriminalising drugs would start lessening the harmful individual and societal effects. It's something to read up on, I think.

Here's a fair and balanced look at homo-pathetic complements to cancer treatments.

There is limited evidence that homeopathic remedies ease the side effects of cancer treatments, but they at least seem to cause no serious adverse effects or drug interactions, according to a report published Tuesday.
christ on a jizzle stick- just this first paragraph turns my head inside out!

Water has no adverse side effects or interactions? of course it fucking doesn't!!!!

still reading-

calendula does have anti-inflammatory properties- but in its herbal and 'real' form- not di;ted to fuck in water! and if it is not di;uted to fuck then it cannot be claimed as homeocrapic

the herbal rinse used by the kids is also not homeocrapic!!!!! it is herbal!!!

Homeopathic products can have very significantly better effects than their preparation would indicate.

I have been trying for years to commit suicide every morning by drinking 12 ounces of a homeopathic brew of Cyanide, Belladonna, Arsenic, Rat Poison, Botulinus Toxin, Plutonium, Absinthe and Bombay Sapphire.

It is OK, but it has too much of a tasteless taste.

So far, none of it has killed me (even with all the other things non-homeopathic-suicide related that have also tried to kill me unsuccessfully). My empirical conclusion, extrapolated from a single test subject, me, is that homeopathic products are as useless as their concentrations are thin. That is, completely useless and completely thin.

You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.

Because the title doesn't make the practice a good one.

Something for everyone in this one

Alternative Medicine is Being Integrated Into Mainstream Medicine

BALTIMORE — At one of the nation's top trauma hospitals, a nurse circles a patient's bed, humming and waving her arms as if shooing evil spirits. Another woman rubs a quartz bowl with a wand, making tunes that mix with the beeping monitors and hissing respirator keeping the man alive.
They are doing Reiki therapy, which claims to heal through invisible energy fields. The anesthesia chief, Dr. Richard Dutton, calls it "mystical mumbo jumbo." Still, he's a fan.
Oh those blurry lines.
