It has been practiced for thousands of years in India...
Have you experienced Ayurvedic healing?
I'm thinking about trying it....there are many things that I need healing from that traditional medicine hasn't been able to resolve.
Just wondering what you all know about it etc...
How exactly is it woo if it's been done for THOUSANDS of years and helped many people heal? Traditional just-take-a-pill-kind of medicine in the US isn't any better. In many ways it's worse!
I also want to find out how to get detoxed from heavy metals....I don't know what is safe or not.
You suffer from metal poisoning?
So you don't have metal poisoning?
Chelation therapy is used on metals in standard medicine, but I sure wouldn't trust any alternative medical advice for it... there's a lot of huckstering for gullible people. Removing a specific metal has real science/chemistry/medicine behind it, along with legitimate testing for metals.
link There are no FDA-approved OTC chelation products. (OTC = Over The Counter, like at a drug or health store.)
Doing things for hundreds of years doesn't make if effective. Indians have prayed for centuries and they still live in poor oppressive misery. Chinese people have taken walrus penis powder for centuries but if doesn't give them better erections. When if comes to your body...tradition is irrelevant and you owe a responsibility to yourself and your son to use treatments that are reliable, safe and fully demonstrated as effective.
This whole "helped many people heal" is based on what someone claimed...not what has been demonstrated. Everyone talks...few people demonstrate. Too many people believe whatever you tell them. People say stupid things all the time and suckers give them money to con them out of fake in demonstrated medicine.
The following does not demonstrate that it heals people:
Only what advocates say. You don't hear from the people for whom this method failed.
Anecdotal evidence. Going on what a handful of people say is good for picking a restaurant or a film to watch...putting your health/life/money on the line. This only gives a highly distorted and unreliable set of information.
Uncontrolled testimony: Working solely on what people claim as success stories doesn't give us important information on whether they got better on their own, through some other treatment, nor does it control for the placebo effect, it also doesn't give us important information about the maladies themselves and compounding factors or how exactly they are being healed, or if they are maladies that are actual maladies and I could go on
The conman effect: If the treatment is being pushed rather than fully and properly explained through sound and investigation.
This woo has failed all empirical studies that controls for all of this as almost all woo medicine does. Back pain and some maladies may be exceptions.
No, it is Woo.
If you have heavy metal poisoning you should immediately see a forensic toxicologist. They have the expertise. Is it lead poisoning or maybe something induced by zinc oxide or maybe even something heavier like barium? Who did the diagnosis for you? He should be struck of the medical register and banned for life for not giving you advice on getting help.
Each year, especially in January many people start talking about “detoxing”. It is a new buzzword in the ever popular Woo industry. This is why I posted a link in School School, Jan 8th. Here it is again:
This weeks’ Woo: The Detox Scam.
Please notice the name of the website.
So you don’t have heavy metal poisoning? That is good to hear. Losing weight rapidly is not a good idea. The paleo diet is a fad. Too many people see the diet as an end in itself.
Pain management and weight loss are not necessary separate levels of a process. I think a good exercise regime is important for not just losing weight but also for keeping it off. Fad diets, like the Paleo (also an older Woo article from a previous Sunday school) are extreme so people think “OH that was easy, I can do that again anytime” and then end up on the most common diet, the “Yo-Yo” one.
Exercise, especially core training is important but is you have area specific pain you must consult a proper sports physio after seeking real medical advice. It must be a life long process and not an extreme attempt every few months.
