So I can still go to my barber for bloodletting, but I can't bill it to my insurance anymore?

You know there's a good argument to be made about significance being an arbitrary line drawn at 0.05 for every relationship ever causing the literature to twist around shiatty methods that get a particular type of results, and there's another good argument to be made about quality control on the processes that govern who gets funding for what...

...but that conversation won't include homeopathy. Fark those guys.

Funny you bring up bloodletting but one of the hottest trends in sugery right now is to take blood from the Px prior to surgery to minimize the usual problems found with blood donation. Also techniques to recover blood lost during surgery, and reintroducing it into the Px's body. Thank the mormons. Seriously. It's a great development.

As far as I know, pretty much every policy I've ever gotten for anything limits what I can do under the terms of the policy.

Massive cost increases year after year since the signing of the bill caused a mass reduction in people opting for the HMO which caused the company to lose justification of having that as an option because of the expense. From a coverage perspective, premiums increased, items covered dropped, and the prescription drug plan was gutted. That said, it was still the best option for people that were looking to manage costs(rather than premium costs)

It's actually pretty clever. If your patient donates 3-4 weeks before their surgery, and there's a problem during surgery, you give them their own blood back. No problems with reactions, no chance of creating antibodies to cause future problems.

Health care costs have been soaring for twenty years. Specifically what in Obamacare (which mostly has not gone into effect) caused new cost increases?

The part where insurance companies took advantage of so called health care cost reform and dramatically raised rates at higher percentages than previously as a result of the health care legislation, like what Aetna, Blue Shield, etc did to Californians in the months directly proceeding the HCR bill signing. When you're promised an increased pool by law you can increase rates for the sake of profit without any real recourse.

You gotta remember that these people are absolutely retarded. they have no concept of causality, no appreciation of science or the scientific method and no understanding of the mechanisms by which the world works. In their minds they think that everything they say makes sense, because they think it. I'll try better to explain what I mean... since causality is right out the window, anything can be caused by and explained by anything else. All that matters is that they believe it while they are saying it. Remember when Palin would talk and everything she said was garbled stupidity, ut you could tell she absolutely believed what she was saying at the moment? it's like that. It's: I have this thought, because I have this thought it must be true, otherwise I wouldn't have this thought. And not being constrained by reality, medicine, math or science they can say anything.

Does that make sense at all?

so you're blaming Obamacare for something the insurance companies did on their own?

BTW, my HMO actually stayed the same this year. Can I give credit to Obamacare for that too?

How about we look at it this way, if you buy a certain item [in this case a certain standard of health insurance] you don't pay some taxes.

That is so crazy that it is a cornerstone of taxation.

Massive cost increases brought on by them not being able to cap medical costs the way they used to... your parents didn't actually have insurance before, they had a limited liability plan masquerading as insurance.

hawcian: fluffy2097: hawcian: If you're not covered by health insurance, you have to pay a penalty/tax/whatever you feel like calling it that day (once that particular part of the bill kicks in). That's always been the case for the healthcare reform law. SCOTUS just pointed out that "pay a penalty" and "pay a tax" have no discernible difference in this particular situation.

Do you opt out of the system as well by not being covered? So you have to pay a tax, then get refused at the ER when you're bleeding out?

/that would be pretty good for the genepool

No, hospitals still take everyone regardless.


And that's why the tax/penalty is there. "Don't buy insurance? Fine, but you still have to pay into this pool that covers ER visits for accidents like you."

Raharu: Good.

It's quack medicine.


Actually, good treatments sometimes get categorized as alternative because specific associations would rather take lobby funds than promote health. Specifically, Neurofeedback has long struggled to gain acceptance (but it's gaining), because the Psychiatric community - despite many studies showing excellent results - has shunned it in favor of prescription medication.

It's really a shame, because Neurofeedback - unlike snake oil - actually does work, and has the scientific research to prove it.

Neurotherapy

Neurotherapy-also called neurofeedback and EEG neurofeedback-is a form of behavior modification that uses electroencephalographic (EEG) biofeedback technology to increase voluntary control over the amplitude and pattern of various brain wave frequencies. Proponents claim that modifying brain wave patterns is effective against anxiety reactions, mood disorders, substance abuse, attention deficit disorders and various other mental and emotional problems. Research shows that brain wave activity can be altered through various forms of biofeedback. However, a comprehensive review has concluded that none of these claims is supported by well-designed studies [20,21].

I agree. The danger is in that they truly believe whatever it is they are thinking at the moment. Their understanding of the world revolves completely around whatever thoughts they have. It's like they were never taught about correlation, causation or basic science. Instead they were raised to believe that anything they can imagine can come true and they are too stupid to know otherwise, so anything can be caused by anything as long as it makes sense to them when they are thinking it. An interesting side effect is that there is no consistency among their thoughts and you can't hold against them anything they have said in the past because that was then and this is now. Also, they have a tendency to believe HEAVILY in astrology and horoscopes and all that bullshiat. They truly and honestly believe that their (and everyone's) personalities are dictated by the month of birth. You know... morons.

Also, that all herbal medicine is fake and has no effect on people. Then some go on to say that you should just take some painkillers if your back hurts instead of getting the lumps massaged out of your muscles or using an infrared heat lamp to to relieve lower back pain or some other method that doesn't involve more pain pills.

You massage my damaged spine, you may end up with me not walking again. I don't choose to take these heavy opiates for FUN (no happy side effects despite high dosage, my body just doesn't work that way), I take them so I am not screaming in agony. So I can work part time despite constant pain even the drugs cannot fully remove. And no water dose is going to cure me unless I drown myself to make it stop. Heat does help, yay heat pads. But as an alleviation only. CBT is incredibly helpful in allowing me to cope. But those expensive 'naughty big pharma' drugs are a necessary part of my management solution. Incredibly patronising of someone, who I bet hasn't got a severe spinal injury, to weigh in with their expert opinion (odd he/she failed to mention their medical qualifications and years of specialization in spinal injurys and management). But thanks to those who stepped in and pointed out he/she may be wrong. I just think he/she is an option acted ass. Donkey, natch;)

My god, why are people so bad at reading comprehension around here? I was clearly not saying you are imagining I said.

So you're saying massage and physiotherapy is nothing but a scam that damages spines? Because I certainly did not say all conditions can be treated with physio and massage. I said that people who call physio and massage a New Age scam are wrong. Thanks for being so insulting to physiotherapists. I'm sure all the orthopedic surgeons who refer their back patients out are just doing it to hurt them.

Maybe he saw someone getting a massage as part of their recovery PT and assumed that was the entire treatment because of his clear case of congenital mental retardation?

Well, rather, the retardation the character he's playing has. Pretty sure he's just trolling, since I know several people that are literally mentally retarded and none of them are as stupid as he's portraying himself to be.

You're the only person to have brought it up.

Headline calling all alternative medicine/integrative medicine the same as the wonderful fairy magic field of homeopathy? Really?


The headline was specifically calling out homeopathy. It didn't mention your non-medicines, just "integrative medicine" which is a loosely defined set of non-medicines.

You alternative medicine types could really benefit from the real stuff. Water and tea leaves aren't going to fix that personality disorder.
