Doctor Funkenstein: there are probably some legal consequences when you draw a circle on a sick person's forehead, stick a magnet up their ass and then tell them its healthcare.


Never heard of that method of treating bipolar disorder before.

Pharmdawg: You know what they call alternative medicine that works?

Medicine

Homeopathy by its own definition is unscientific quackery.


It's not completely useless. It's the first line treatment of Morgellons disease.

sigdiamond2000: Yeah, thank God her "naturopath" has thrown loose the shackles of Big Pharma by off-label prescribing a synthetic drug made for heroin addicts to her son because he's fat and plays video games all day.


She's getting f*cked. My Quackiopath prescribes straight buprenorphine. I haven't had a cold in years!

The trick is getting the right magnet. You can just pluck one off something hanging on your fridge and send it to brown town. You need one of those oval rare Earth magnets that'll glide right up the old chocolate starfish.

Obamacare doomed the HMO my grandparents had through their employer. Now they have a PPO, high deductible HSA, or dropping healthcare altogether and going with Medicare as their options. Great options for elderly people who want to manage their healthcare costs. I guess they could opt for open-market coverage from Kaiser.

FTFA's Coments: We are careful not to use the words health, healthcare, treat, disease, etc. for fear of stepping on the toes of big business.

I'm guessing you loons don't use those words because you don't do any of those things and there are probably some legal consequences when you draw a circle on a sick person's forehead, stick a magnet up their ass and then tell them its healthcare.

There's also this gem in there:

I don't want Medicare for my kids or me! We have autoimmune disease and I don't want the government involved in their healthcare at all. I want to be able to afford continuing to take my oldest son who's disease is more severe to a naturopath so he can keep using low dose naltrexone. His immunologist refuses to prescribe it for him, but it helps him so much! Personally, I worry about Obama causing restricted or no access to immune modulators or off label uses for medicine like this. I honestly wish one of his daughters got autism or PANDAS, because then he would understand how hard it is.

If this gets greenlit, maybe we can use the followup tag when the article about this kid dying gets submitted.

Good. What's that sound a duck makes, again? They seem to be talking about "Integrative Medicine" when they say something.

I hope it goes green. AltMed threads on fark are legendary for derp that rivals any political thread about the gay atheist agenda for war on Christmas.


I appreciate the cognitive dissonance required to consider doctors and pharmaceutical companies to be a big scam, but jokers selling snake oil with no credentials and a folksy story about how their shiat works is not

Fark It: How long have you been a practicing anesthesiologist or back specialist? Spinal stenosis, and a whole host of other disorders and procedures, is not something you can treat with a heating pad and a rub and tug, you granola-munching twat.


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.

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.

Here is a gem that came across my wife's Facebook feed that she was kind enough to share with me.

Well my son, ________ was hit by the flu epidemic today. I am so thankful we didn't get him vaccinated by big pharma!

She is an anti-vaccine person. My wife and I have been so confused by this comment.....

Yes, homeopathy is a hoax which means massage never works and you can eat buckets of any herb you want without having any effect.
