    Dear friends,

    I will start this thread with this piece that was floating around in the net for some time :

    2000 B.C. - Here, eat this root.
    1000 A.D. - That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.
    1850 A.D. - That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.
    1940 A.D. - That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.
    1985 A.D. - That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.
    2003 A.D. - That antibiotic doesn't work anymore. Here, eat this root.

    We have come a full circel in modern medicine and alternate therapies are very much in again. One main argument against these therapies are that the mechanism of action is not known. But I think it is foolish to reject something because we dont understand them, YET, that is. Infact, many of these therapies are supposed to work at the energy/quantum mechanical level. The one main and basic difference between these and allopathic system is that - most of these therapies (if genuine!) dont interfere with your body functions and try to help the body recover by itself. But the curse with these are the quakes that practice them and the myths surrounding them.

    I have personally been benefitted by Homeopathy, acupressure and acupuncture, when I was fed up otherwise. Would definitely recommend these to people who are looking for remedies. Especially for diseases with no pathological cause.

    Would be interesting to hear others' experiences.

    Hi Sumathy,
    That's a good one- Yes, alternate therapy , when done by experts is good for the body- can rest assured that there would be no side-effects.
    But, we should be careful while choosing the therapist.:my2cents
