Yep, that's right. Shit gave you cholera, so more shit must make you better!
I hate homoepathy....

That's what we call the placebo effect.
#24 - 2scared2login (10/30/2013) [-]
Except for the fact actual medicine is tested in a scientific setting, not in a hippie's basement.
#25 - captainfuckitall (10/30/2013) [-]
Except for the fact that those "Alternative Medicines" were used for generations before-hand and most who have participated in them claim they work.
I like this game, it's fun.
But seriously though, even IF it's a placebo effect, that still means it actually works. If it does the job, does it really matter how the job is done?

Just because generations before "claim" that something works, doesn't mean it works.
I can say that I think eating a piece of wood helps me live a long life since my family has been eating pieces of wood since always and that my family has reached an old age on average.
This does not prove ANYTHING.
#32 - captainfuckitall (10/30/2013) [-]
And we also find medicine ineffective and with unforeseen side-effects all the time, there's always something new coming out because the old one didn't work.
That's a poor example, seeing as how old-age isn't exactly something you can use as a starting point. It would be better to say that everytime you were sick, you ate a piece of wood, and within a day you got better; which is similar to the old remedies.
What do you mean?
#33 - thedutchs (10/30/2013) [-]
Because people who claim that Herbal medicine works, hold modern day medicine back.
It's idiotic how many people refuse to take actual medicine because they believe in "natural" stuff.
And my point was that just because you do a certain thing every time the same situation occurs, and the outcome is the same, doesn't mean the certain thing you did actually helped.
Just because you feel better in a day, could be because of placebo. Medicine that works on placebo is not what we need. The body can do a lot of things and solve a lot of problems on itself, so when it doesn't, medicine comes into play. Taking medicine when your body can help itself is therefore idiotic.
Also, failing medicine and side effects are the whole idea of good science. Trial and error. When you face a problem, you can solve it. I'm not saying I don't feel bad for people who died because of certain bad medicine, I'm saying that this is what happens in evolution.
Some old remedies we're good, but that was really sheer luck. Why? Because doctors in anywhere before the 1800 had no way of utilizing chemistry like we have now.
Modern medicine might not be perfect, but it's getting there.

If you honestly believe that, I feel pity for you. Medicine advances at a constant pace, regardless of what people say about it; eating a root every now and again or drinking a certain cup of tea certainly do not hold it back; furthermore, it is good to face criticism every now and again, medicine included, as we have had MANY drawbacks regarding bad medicine or too many side-effects.
I understand that, and it is true, but as I said with the person above, genuinely believing it could induce a placebo effect which actually helps you, and in the end, if the job is done does it really matter how it is done?
Actually, many doctors give their professional opinion that the "Placebo" approach is one of the best healers in medicine. A lot of people believe that it only makes you THINK you're better, but this is not actually the case; people have even recovered from cancer and terminal illness based upon Placebo approaches.
Indeed, and I totally agree; I'm just saying that there are many 'cures' that people do not look at. Perhaps with a rise of popular alternative medicine, someone could take a look at it and use it to improve both real medicine and the alternative, no?
That's true, but even back then a lot of it was just trial and error, just like now; but many of those old cures still actually work; hell, even today, one of the best 'blood-thinners' you could possibly have is putting leeches on you, a technique they used hundreds of years ago.
Indeed, and I totally agree and support it; I'm simply saying that maybe it could get there QUICKER with the help of 'Alternative Medicines' actually deemed effective.

Your diet doesn't fall under medicine. Medicine and nutrition are different things. Tea isn't medicine and potatoes are roots as well. And criticism is EXACTLY the reason why modern medicine has developed the way it does. And maybe the whole thing about trial and error isn't clear to you, but it incorperates those drawbacks.
And if you want to induce placebo, you could tell that someone needs to eat certain things or do certain exercises instead of selling them expensive herbal medicines.
Also, leech saliva often cause cloggings of the arteries and veneral damage. Bloodletting itself is stupid. Only when applied to swelling does it work, and a leech is far too random for that.
The reason why herbal medicine and modern medicine cannot "help" each other is because their basics are different. Modern Medicine is about chemical reactions and biology. Herbal Medicine is about assumptions.
Don't pity me. Pity humanity. You want to know the reason why I think like this? My grandfather was a doctor in Indonesia, and he has seen many people die because they used their olde herbal medicine and came to a doctor, far too late.
I hate your medicine.

What do you mean "my" medicine, I didn't come up with it. You seem like a very angry person, but that's alright, I can understand why; even so, you seem to be far too adverse to it for this conversation to do anything practical, so we should bid eachother farewell here before we get into an argument about who screwed who's mother first.

American Journal of Bio-pharmacology Biochemistry and Life Sciences [AJBBL]
The plants that possess therapeutic properties are exerting beneficial pharmacological effects on the animal body are generally designated as medicinal plants.
The plant derived products such as flavonoids, terpenoids and steroids have received considerable attention in recent years due to their diverse
pharmacological properties. Recently, medicinal plants constitute an important “National Resource” throughout the world. India is one of the richest plant based ethno medical traditions in the world.
Most of the plants are known to possess some principles in their extracts, which have an inhibitory action towards pathogens and to treat many degenerative diseases.
Numerous plant constituents have proven to show free radical scavenging or antioxidants activity.
TLR there is a whole field of science studying the medicinal affects of plants to try to extract the chemical compounds that help people

That shit actually works

hey now, don't lump in medicinal herbs with that bullshit. They actually do something. (although a lot of retarded people will claim random shit will do anything when there is no fucking proof.). I use willowbark tea when I have a headache, aloe on burns, etc. Stuff that actually has science behind it.
