Mr Guy: Treygreen13: Tuning forks can be used to detect fractures in bones.Vibrating a fracture at a resonance frequency sounds more painful than an X-Ray to me.

Ehcks: If "alternative medicine" worked, it would be taken up by hospitals and called "medicine."

heyheyjerky: Do people forget that China had medicine and a thriving culture thousand of years before modern western medicine. Anyways, color therapy sounds kinda bogus but herbs and acupuncture and acupressure do work.

Nhojwolfe: Ehcks: If "alternative medicine" worked, it would be taken up by hospitals and called "medicine."Not really, Hospitals want to make money. If you were able to grow a home remedy just as good as the hospitals who would spend money on it. Or even if there was a market it would be pretty small.
