Of course not
You are desperate and afraid.
A sweet-talking "persecuted genius" has appealed to "ancient wisdom." it won't help. If you get a good result with conventional therapy, he/she will take credit. If you get a bad result, he/she will blame you for accepting conventional treatment or not seeing him/her sooner. Do not reward these cruel charlatans with your money, even if it's not much. Be strong.
