The British Medical Journal (BMJ) recently presented a study, whose findings led scientists to warn about alternative healing methods. However, if you look at the supposed evidence to justify this warning, then you quickly realize that it does not exist and this is a guide.
Alternative treatment methods
Including alternative methods of treatment (also called alternative Maxadrex medicine or complementary or alternative medicine) different treatment methods, in addition to diagnostic methods that are not part of the curriculum for the study of current traditional medicine, such as: B. better medicine, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Nervous treatment, homeopathic, acupuncture, chiropractic, iris diagnosis and many more.
In traditional medical settings, it is assumed that most alternative healing methods work only on the basis of placebo effects.
It should be noted that the scientists did not examine the patients and do not know them personally. The study is based solely on questionnaires that must be completed by treating physicians. Only 39 questionnaires were sent to the researchers and evaluated by them in the following way:
Study of the side effects of alternative medicine
In the previous study, Australian researchers at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne want to discover, however, that alternative healing methods, especially for children, are explicitly dangerous.
Their presumed evidence consists of a weak representative number of poorly documented reports (from 2001 to 2003) of side effects attributed by researchers to the alternative therapies used in the cases in question.
The study is limited to the evaluation of questionnaires
During this period, the Child Control Unit of Australia (APSU) 1 collected 46 cases of children and adolescents aged 0-16 years, with negative reactions observed as a result of treatment with alternative therapies.
These health problems were like that. Constipation, allergies, mouth ulcers, nausea and seizures. Four deaths related to alternative and complementary therapies were also reported.
