    I believe there is some merit to it. Particularly the treatments rooted in chinese medicine.

    I'm down for herbs, infusions, and oils. Some of them are pretty legitimate.

    Complete crap - unless it has a reproducible effect (and psychosomatic effects don't count). TCM does so well because the Chinese have access to a lot of plants that have fairly useful active ingredients. Other than that, it's in your head, and lets face it, that can generally help. You don't need a cortisol flood when you have all sorts of other shit to deal with.

    Not into it, but I do think nutrition plays a much bigger role in prevention of disease than what the current stance of allopath medicine seems to believe. Nutrition is more of a holistic practitioner's approach from what I've read.

    It's all rubbish. Admittedly I have read into NLP, but not as a form of medication. And even then it's uses are heavily overestimated.

    I agree, the power of good nutrition is underrated.

    I voted Faith Healing in the hopes it would cause a ruckus.
