    I never understand why people hold something against the chiropractor.
    My wife and I made a game to teach kids about nutrition. Please try our game and vote for us to win. (Voting period: July 14 - August 14)

    Okay, let's be honest here... who voted Homeopathy? Bend over for your spanking.

    yes I totally agree, when I'm asked what my skin care regime is....good nutrition, sleep and water - it makes you look 10 years younger

    Actually lots of fruit and vieggies are large contributor.

    I did, and actually I'd rather have the spanking

    I didn't find it particularly useful, but then maybe I didn't try it long enough...

    thisGuy... esoteric knowledge if used for healing purposes perhaps it counts..

    I'm really shocked by two faith healing votes... Wonder if the people had better experiences than I have seen.

    er... why have you put NLP to alternative MEDICINE list? I honestly can't think of any possible therapeutic use for it - and I am a NLP master...

    Actually I know its a streach but NLP can be used as a therapy... Changing peoples consious state is a type of CBT.

    I know it's not the normal application of NLP, but to be honest I've never seen a normal use of NLP, it seems to be used for everything but the kitchen sink.....

    I voted other.

    None.

    Apart from a one time antibiotic treatment as a result of being inocculated for a disease while having the disease in my body, getting the disease nearly twice as bad as a result when I was about 3 years old. The only medicine I ever had in my life is aspirin. Paracetamol and Ibuprofen. Can't recall ever having any other medicine.

    I've used alcohol on wounds, vaseline stuffs on skin things and such. But I don't really see that stuff as medicine. :P

    I've lived a pretty medicine free life. *shrugs*

    Yep. Some herbs have useful active ingredients in them. The trick is to buy good quality ones IMO.

    That was the only one I ticked the box for. I have had acupuncture as a kid but it wasn't my choice to have it. Don't think it made any difference tbh.

    Impressive....





    Herbs and TCM - they do contain active ingredients, so you ought to declare them to western medics to ensure you don't over dose.

    Many drugs are refined herbs or synthetic version of herbs...

    Nicholas Culpeper was the herbal god, who's book has never gone out of publications since 1600's (so I've heard). Culpeper's complete herbal. The BBC also did a costume drama about him which was very good...The Rebel Physician.

    I'm still entregued about the NT's who have done some of the really out-there stuff....
