Most of that stuff is bull$hit, snake oil.

The wonder is why so many people seem, in the face of no evidence, to have faith (in the religious sense) that it actually does anything at all, except emptying your wallet.

Homeopathy - Con or Cure / Enemies of Reason (Richard Dawkins) [I think this was a BBC documentary].
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0-NalmRSl8

If the above intro isn't enough to debunk homeopathy in most people's minds, then.... maybe they need to go and see a doctor, a proper one ... :wink: :lol:

I normally don't do this but I think you should go in for a therapy to cleanse your chakras :mrgreen:

one of my post retirement fantasies is to open a post modern, pseudo hindu naturopathic, holistic healing center where one will enter into a world of tranquility, be subjected to goa trance, smoke up a blunt and then proceed to eat an organic vegetarian meal in silence and end with a healer who will cleanse a human of all sins and past life complications and in the end the person emerges out of a cocoon naked and new born
all this for a five hour and 1500 package. GST extra.

It'll be a big hit with the hokey-pokey, nu-age, fad diet clinging, pseudo-science lovin' crowd.

And your luscious-hair, love-guru charisma will grace the advertisements and women would queue at your door. They will sign a package where they will pay a sum every month for the wonderful world of aromatherapy, meditation and world peace.

Homeopathetic medicine is not real? I knew I came back in here for something, I must go and try some traditional medicine on my severed limb then. I hope it stops me bleeding out!

Dr. JR8 suggests a daily dose of...

"Almost Cut My Hair" [1970]

Almost cut my hair, it happened just the other day.
It's getting' kinda long, I coulda said it wasn't in my way.
But I didn't and I wonder why, I feel like letting my freak flag fly,
Cause I feel like I owe it to someone.

Must be because I had the flu' for Christmas and I'm not feeling up to par.
It increases my paranoia, like looking at my mirror and seeing a police car.
But I'm not giving in an inch to fear cause I missed myself this year.
I feel like I owe it to someone.

When I finally get myself together, I'm going to get down in that sunny southern weather.
And I find a place inside to laugh, separate the wheat from the chaff.
I feel like I owe it to someone.
