What to tell me about alternative treatment cancer centers?

What to tell me about alternative treatment cancer centers?

How they operate: They offer warmth and "spirituality / caring" in contrast to impersonal evidence-based medicine. If you get better after previous scientific rx, "it was really us who helped." if you stay sick, "we stabilized you." if you die, "if only you hadn't eaten those twinkies / had that surgery." they lie shamelessly. The only cancers they cure are the ones they diagnose themselves. Shun these people. ...Read more

For red measles (roseola): aconitum napellus, arsenicum album, morbillinum, pulsatilla, and varicellinium. Personally, i don't do this -- and treat homeopathically from what the patient actually presents. ...Read more

I'm looking for a dermatologist who can treat my case of alopecia.  I live in oakland ca. Please let me know of any recommendations.?

Ask a primary doctor: A person having hair loss can ask his primary care doctor about it, because sometimes there is a medical disorder causing hair loss (although many times it's just male-pattern baldness). The doctor may have other patients who have had good results with local dermatologists, plastic surgeons, hair restoration doctors, etc...

They bring money into Mexico so the government tolerates them. Would you go there to buy anything else of real value? ...Read more
