Question by daniel: Does anyone have any scientific evidence supporting alternative medicine?
Please, do no tell me anecdotes, personal stories, or anything like that. The last thing I want to hear is about how alternative medicine worked for you. I think that is wonderful but it hardly serves as proof. I want to see some sort of hard evidence. The ideal would be a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled trial. Any trial or study would suffice. I am looking for some websites or something to read to supply me with evidence. Thanks for your help!

You can look at the NCCAM division of the NIH (http://nccam.nih.gov/), which funds research on alternative medicine in the United States. They’ve run multiple double blind placebo controlled on some of the more popular alternative methods.
Though in the 18 years they have been running, and despite near a billion dollars spent, they have yet to come up with one useful treatment, or come up with evidence supporting one.
EDIT: I think the two sites below speak to a lot of the problems in trying to do any research in this area, and are a testament to the veracity of altmed in general.
We have conspiracy theories, outright hallucinations, beliefs that Russia and China have armies hiding in bunkers under British Columbia.
And shameless fellation of Ron Paul, who’s ideas on healthcare come from an organization(The American Academy of Physicians and Surgeons) that is involved in HIV denialism, removal of laws protecting patients from exploitation and scams, and outright racism.

The renowned philosopher and psychologist William James believed that one learns by incorporating bodily knowledge, the way one recalls how to swim in winter. One recalls by muscle memory. One adapts and form habits from ones daily experiences. This insight helps shape Paul Lacey’s new poetry book, “We Learn to Swim in Winter.
Poetry invites one to look closely as a visual artist sees things, paying respectful attention to people, animals and nature. It teaches one to see well, to meditate on and celebrate what one sees. We Learn to Swim in Winter gives voice to memories of family and friends who enrich the inner meanings of ones life. They are present in everyones lives and draw out emotions of — joy, laughter, the pleasure of companionship and the truth of grief. Here are poems closely observing war remnants in Vietnam, homeless people in freezing weather, a prisoner in prolonged solitary confinement, recording participation in political demonstrations. Telling the truth about those lives is an ethical responsibility.
His poem Winter Postcard reads:
