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

Medicine is the science and practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness. Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease, typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others. Medicine has existed for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism. In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science). While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science. Pre-scientific forms of medicine are now known as traditional medicine and folk medicine. They remain commonly used with or instead of scientific medicine and are thus called alternative medicine. For example, evidence on the effectiveness of acupuncture is "variable and inconsistent" for any condition, but it is generally safe when done by an appropriately trained practitioner. In contrast, treatments outside the bounds of safety and efficacy are termed quackery.

bullshit. if you had any brain and could think for yourself, you would know what a load of crap your plagiarized definition is.

what you need to know is that the mainstream is quackery, which is why it fails to get sick well. unfortunately it has so many people fooled with the incessant propaganda it buys like this crap that relatively few ever wise up to it and find out the truth of what does work.

the mainstream has no interest in getting sick well, doesn't, and tries to destroy those who can. these bullshit propaganda videos it makes by the hundreds are one way it attempts to dissuade the public from finding real health care that corrects the cause of illness in place of their toxic treatments that make people sicker.

We must pay health care all our lifetime. It is time to ask what service we get for the money. Is medicine of 21st century better than of the 20th century?

Then why is there so much evidence in the medical journals proving their effectiveness? Just because uneducated people such as yourself do not look that does not mean it does not exist. Also in the medical journals are studies explaining why chemo drugs tend to have such low success rates, why testing for viruses (antibody tests and PCR) have no accuracy, why AZT shortens the lives of people testing HIV+, which again is a highly inaccurate test, and various other examples of allopathic pseudomedicine!!!!!

I'd give the video credit in that its first recommendation is to look into the research and ask actual doctors. But yeah. There seems to be this misunderstanding that scientists and doctors would dismiss medical treatments if they worked and were safe. To the contrary, the alternative and complementary medicine don't work, because if they worked, they wouldn't be alternative or complementary medicine. They'd be medicine. It's like any other conspiracy theory where people claim something (i.e. flat earth, or that evolution is false), and then have to come up with an explanation as to why the entire scientific community doesn't listen to them, or than that the earth isn't flat or doctors don't use alternative/complementary medicine because they don't actually work.

+ Redonne Moi John Lennon En Echange De Jul et PNL Wow you are all over the place attacking things you clearly do not understand. Just like on the ozone video where you said you cannot find anything on ozone therapy yet I posted 3 pages of research proving the efficacy of ozone therapy. Then suddenly you claim ozone does not exist and you threatened to run away because you got your ass kicked so badly when it was proven what a complete imbecile you are. For those wondering what I am talking about here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Qyb096coLU&lc=z12mdb3bjqegivuah04cixzxvqvmgdvhptc0k.1504597965661513&feature=em-comments You will find his two year old-like whinings in the comments section.
