    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineDIE HOMEOPATHY DIEThis book is perfect I've been thinking I had to write this book eventually but now I don't have to because it exists and it's exactly as I imagined it Now all I have to do is have a child and plant a tree It's a fact that otherwise smart people have a tendency to believe weird stuff It's always there right under the surface My own mom just came in to tell me I have to be careful tomorrow 111111 because the number 11 scares her I don't understand it but there it is And being afraid of the number 11 probably won't hurt her but there are people ou

    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineThis is the third book I've read this year that examines the evidence for and against alternative medicine so much of the ground it covers was already familiar to me Despite that fact I enjoyed this book a great deal and think it is likely to be the most accessible to those who have personal experience with alternative medicineThe authors take an in depth look at the four most popular modalities in the alternative medicine world acupuncture homeopathy chiropractic and herbal medicine They briefly discuss the history and pu

    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineWow The authors treat their readers as if we are unintelligent I really thought this book was going to take a neutral and scientific based approach to exploring the efficacy of alternative medicines I am also surprised to see some of the reviewers on here saying things like this book just confirmed all my beliefs and I

    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineSuper biased in favor of conventional medicine which shouldn't be a shock since it's written by an MD Not well cited at all very anecdotal in the examples that prove how useless alternative medicine is other than the super diluted homeopathic drugs Mentioned a FEW people have even been harmed with natural cures but failed to mention the over 100000 people who die in the US every year from correctly prescribed properly taken conventional medicine not including overdoses and illegally used prescriptions drugsI was hoping for a book that gave detailed info on some natural cures and some clinical evidence to back it up but nothing was detailed a waste of time

    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineThis book investigates the claims alternative medical treatments make based on a scientifically acknowledged methodologyThe book starts with a description of the scientific methods studies have to be based on to have any value They also evaluate some well known studiesThe next chapters look thouroughly on acupuncture homeopathy chiropractic therapy and herbal medicineThe last chapter which I found particularly interesting discusses if the placebo effect of alternative treatments is something that should be used as an addition to school medicineIn the appendix you find an overview and short evaluation of many alternative treatmentsI don’t think it is a spoiler when I tell you that most alternative treatments have turned out as ineffective with a placebo effect in best case a few have a slight positive impact and some are not only ineffective but also dangerous The authors’ evaluatio

    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineIn my continued exploration of alternative medicine I turned to Drs Edzard Ernst and Simon Singh’s Trick or Treatment While rife with medical history and science unfortunately it reads somewhat like stereo instructions Trick or Treatment is simply too tedious for the casual reader I’m sure medical professionals will find this text fascinating Laypeople? Not so much It’s too academic Further I find it irritating that the doctors denigrate alternative medicine practitioners for relying on anecdotal experience when they do the same It's story after story of the negative effects a certain complementary treatment had on one or a few person Basically the definition of an anecdote I was looking for the science or lack thereof behind why specific alternative remedies are pure uackery Give me the science I WANT TH

    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineThis book takes an objective look at alternative medicine The outcome is electrifying to everyone who thinks and has used or considered using anything like homeopathy or acupuncture Singh and Ernst don’t set out with any malice – Ernst has worked for many years in alternative medicine – but they show devastatingly how proper trials have shown these alternative treatments to rarely be better than a placebo and often to have negative or even life threatening conseuencesIt really is striking – the vast majority of alternative medical treatments are proved to be on a par with snake o

    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineSo Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts About Alternative Medicine was written by Simon Singh who I used to respect and Edzard Ernst MD who calls himself the world's first professor of complementary medicine and immediately relative to this I have heard people who know him clear their throats and add Although I have never heard where he studied any complementary medicine See what I just did there? I cast aspersions upon one of the authors by relating an an

    doc ↠ Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative Medicine Hardcover read Trick or Treatment The Undeniable Facts about Alternative MedicineI once watched a pigeon waddling around on the sidewalk launch into the air and bounce off a pedestrian’s chest It shattered the illusion that the natural world is some sort of flawless mystical place—that animals are so in tune with their surroundings that they never make mistakes or have poor judgments “Yeah I can totally achieve escape velocity before that giant lumbering treetrunk or whatever crosses my flightpath” thinks the pigeon No You didn’tThis sort of magic
