    @vairocana23 that has more to do with industrialization and societal changes… not the presence of “western” medicine.

  2. ClementsTomNov 22, 2010

    It’s all a money-making scam. There’s no scientific evidence to suggest “Chi” even exists. Don’t buy into it. If you have a health problem, go to your GP and seek real help.

  3. cwajNov 22, 2010

    @Fire4FX I agree.

    Vairocana23 and Prospero811 the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) who oversees all of the commercial drug and foods (including additives) in the US, state ON THEIR OWN WEBSITE that the burden of scientific proof can be given by the companies who stand to profit from the sales of the drugs. And they are not held accountable for any suppressed or unpublished negative results regarding those drugs. Plus, most trials are not long term-so sometimes using a drug is a gamble.

    good morning, jeremy! would you like to take your medicine now?

  12. sugarpuddin88Nov 22, 2010

    Vairo

    People are going to choose ignorance; and continue to serve themselves up as steak to the International Cartel of Bankers as well as to their physicians

  13. vairocana23Nov 22, 2010

    LOL, and who determines the validity of these so called double-blind studies? If you look at the amount of pharmaceutical drugs that has been recalled in the last 5 years alone should make any one with common sense question these so-called double-blind studies that approved those drugs in the first place.

  14. vairocana23Nov 22, 2010

    The health of the Chinese people declined as they switch away from their traditional diet of nutritious foods and abandoned their ancient healing arts and began to utilize “Western Medicine”

  15. trypsin881Nov 23, 2010

    what data are you basing this on? Personal opinion?

  16. trypsin881Nov 23, 2010

    that’ll never happen.

  17. prospero811Nov 23, 2010

    If Chinese “medicine” is so much better, then why do the Chinese not live longer, healthier lives than Americans?

  18. prospero811Nov 23, 2010

    No. A medicinal plant and herb is not considered a valid treatment if there is no evidence that shows that it works. If you properly conduct a double-blind study that can be verified and repeated that shows grass seeds cure cancer, everybody would use it. The sick joke played on the public’s health is played by snake oil salesmen who make unsubstantiated claims.

  19. vairocana23Nov 23, 2010

    And where does western medicine get all of their pharmaceuticals especially their “miracle drugs” from? From the very same plants and herbs that various peoples around the world have been used for centuries and some from thousands of years. But those same medicinal plants and herbs are not consider valid treatment for illness or disease based on FDA regulation. It a very sick joke played with the public’s health.

  20. vairocana23Nov 23, 2010

    I am aware of that fact and many others about the scam that is allopathic medicine. The key to optimum health is for people to educate themselves about nutrition, and learn about plants, and other herbs that have centuries and even millenniums of safe usage. As long as a person chooses to remain ignorant, and don’t take responsibility for their own health that person is relegating himself or herself to substandard quality of life.

  21. abyssquickNov 23, 2010

    Yes;

    Linus Pauling linked it to Vitamin C deficiency- his last great contribution. Cholesterol levels in the blood do not matter if one has adequate Vitamin C (2000 mg/day – to match blood levels found in other great apes) for collagen formation.

    When collagen is strong, no weaknesses develop, cholesterol does not stick to artery walls.

    It also helps significantly to not eat bad fats (saturated, trans, overabundant omega-6), which weaken collagen.

    USA medicine sucks, agreed.

    Damn! I just noticed that chick has some big… eyes. That and she knows her Oriental Medicine. I take Chinese Medicine I purchased while in Shanghai. Very impressive, and nice blouse.

  23. fatlion12Nov 23, 2010

    Chinese and Western medicine could complement each other wonderfully if we westerners stopped being so arrogant and profit driven and started seriously using herbal medicine. Hard drugs have many side effects and don’t help the body heal, herbs can actually encourage healing if used correctly.

  24. RefugeeTNov 23, 2010

    hahaha true, i don’t smoke either but it should be legal. peace

  25. sugarpuddin88Nov 23, 2010

    Thanks

    For 12 years all the scientific research has proven that cholesterol lowering drugs increase morbidity & mortality – So why are they the number one USA prescribed drugs?

    In fact, cholesterol does NOT cause atherosclerosis, (hyperinsulemia triggers cytokines that cause it)

    Cholesterol is needed to form hormones; so by turning off cholesterol, you turn off hormone production; the agent ages quicker & dies faster

    USA medicine is ranked 54th in the world
