Proven vs unproven. By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative". Soup may comfort but not cure.

We have little to offer these patients, and the advantages of having a loving home like yours are really not offset by any disadvantage of non-physician-based care. When one of you becomes ill with something treatable, i hope ull find common ground between science & faith as do we all.
