So I was going through the irrational precepts & was surprised to find holistic medicine at the bottom. First off, what does hollistic medicine have to do with anything? And why is it automatically bad? Wouldn't you just be inclined to use whatever works, not necessarily what's been "scientifically verified" considering that some medicines the FDA approves are far more dangerous than any hollistic medicine? I don't want to get into the nitty gritty of how screwed up our healthcare system is & how the pharmaceutical companies are manipulating everyone into thinking that it's ok to be sick, but isn't this a little close-minded for a so-called rational site?
I had joint pain for over 2 years. All the doctors I went to who only know how to prescribe drugs told me it was hopeless & that I should either get surgery or take steroid shots which only make the problem come back later much worse. The real problem? I had a systemic candida infection and as soon as I started treating it it went away. The doctors who only know how to prescribe drugs would have never figured that one out. All you have to do is leave America & go to any other country to see how retarded our healthcare system is. But hey, if you guys enjoy being sick and think it's normal then that's your prerogative.
In general it's bad to hold anything on a pedestral - whether it's science or religion. The thing about science is that it's not science just because someone says it is. The pharmaceutical industry only cares about making money, and the FDA is misusing science to that end.
