Read the articles in the colon thread, and then make a better-informed opinion.
I think you're talking about homeopathic remedies... they're the ultra-diluted ones. I don't know enough about homeopathic medicine to make an intelligent comment on it. I know some people who have tried it... about half of them say it works. I haven't tried it myself though... but I will at some point just to see what I think for myself.Originally posted by Ditto Much
ie - LOAD OF BULLSHIT!!!!! sorry I just don't believe that anything gets more powerful the more you dilute it. Prove me wrong, prove me wrong!! Now at least they are so diluted they can't hurt you.

Herbal tinctures are actually CONCENTRATED forms of the herb. Like White willow for instance, within this tree bark is a chemical called salicin from that chemists purified the aspirin precursor, salicylic acid. If you were to take a tincture of white willow for a headache you would find it quite effective. All herbs indeed all plants have active chemical properties which are the basis for aromatherapy, herbolgy and a great deal of pharmacology. Herbs are very powerful and shouldn't be taken without consulting a health practitioner well educated in the effect of herbs as well as their interactions with pharmaceuticals.
There is a slow shift towards acceptance within our health care system to adjunct therapies. Given the cultural make up of our population, it's inevitable.Originally posted by gubydal
Absence of physical symptoms is NOT equal to a state of good health. Physical symptoms are usually the last to manifest themsleves. We all know about the importance of early detection when it comes to any serious illness, that's because by the time the PHYSICAL symptoms are felt the illness is already quite advanced. Holistic medicine addresses the cause of the condition and treats it on all levels. Mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.
That is not exactly true and is a very ignorant statement to make. Even if this statement is only applying to pain.Originally posted by JMan
Everyone needs to lean on conventional medicine from time to time, but the fact that it attacks symptoms means it usually can't stop chronic or reoccuring pain/problems. Combo action for sure.
