Acupuncture, homeopathy, and all the other quack medical garbage is just their to help you lighten your wallet. They touch you, rub your back, thin your wallet, and if you have nothing seriously wrong with you, and you believe, then it seems to work, all hunky dory.
But once you have something wrong with you, this witch doctor medicine is deadly.
None of this stuff is worth the money it costs, and toying with it can be deadly, why bother. Leave the medicine to the people who actually are trained to practice medicine, not a Witch Doctor.
