Are turning to alternative therapies most often they are prayer relaxation supplements meditation and besides.
Women younger patients and wealthier individuals with more education are using these alternative treatments -- the point here folks is that.
This is yet another sign of that meteoric rise of the alternative medicine.
Business and joining this -- -- the -- We love this guy doctor Marc Siegel good to see you know Rebecca -- -- let us not only -- -- -- great doctor about because you know how.
Code scanner totally -- the if you have no idea the amount of emails and feedback and also had from people saying how lucky I am -- I had a doctor like you that stepped up encompassing or you're stuck with -- -- -- the great then I'm not I hope.
We moved up to the alternative therapy and that's key bill well let's -- the red spot -- I'm Michael does that go to the doctor to go to the doctor for weeks and his seat back.
It's not -- not cowboy currently.
But you gotta go get checked out -- -- -- Because he didn't go for alternative treatment -- -- Got a five billion dollar industry in the United States two billion in California well you're not surprised because the California has two out of the 5000000007.
Hundred million dollars spent every year on vitamin C which is completely unproven treatment I did it doesn't work for coming call tell tell you that.
You know a good -- him and that's the whole -- -- when I gave up a lot of the feedback I got when I also talked about this line is he's just so much of people saying don't trust the doctor don't put that.
Antibiotic in -- assistant heparin is the worst thing you can ever do.
I did all of that for thirty days every day and look at the result I'm back to normal you know.
And that study that.
Rebecca is talking about is actually about that whole issue that people don't trust the doctors -- vital for alternative treatments which are mysterious there's actually you know you don't know -- will be getting.
They're not proven scientifically.
And that's a big problem on the other hand it's a great investment.
That's what I mean yeah.
There's no there there has to be some legitimacy into the alternative therapies you have the national.
Institutes of health spending millions of dollars looking into them I mean.
Why wouldn't I think it's say the government quite a lot of money on a lot unethical or is that what the theory I mean in acupuncture that that's -- -- -- okay.
Straight to afford one I don't think you're told well I think there's a lot of very very great valued -- this but the problem is the science doesn't show it.
It doesn't mean it's completely work -- maybe scientists to bring behind the current some cases but in other cases it's just the placebo effect and the reason the nationalist who -- help.
Is putting a 121 million.
Dollars a year at the starting this isn't necessarily because they think there's science because its consumer driven because there's a lot of interest that -- -- -- -- the and I.
Your personal and hopefully they can also proved that even if it doesn't work that it doesn't work because that's -- that's a great course you don't think.
That's the sort of it and the societal thing whether it's just so much distrust of the fight users -- farmers of the world look HMO's on the world and by the way out some beautiful reports this morning from a couple of HMOs and I've been talking on the show bias or the 7% yield I -- that stuff.
Right here applies of course and Johnson Johnson are getting very interest in these alternative treatments they're largely over the counter but the big guys are getting involved in this some of the little guys are on the believable company called -- -- says.
Head on the other thing with -- that was the hey what are so glad they're selling millions of dollars without -- there's no there's no actual medical value and that our airborne out of order that I I think I don't -- -- just think when I don't have the placebo effect there's no sense of him in a lot.
What you say that about seeing that I can -- you know the cold these laws and do.
Has some -- values of each one of these things a little bit different but you're right the second that's not proven.
But why is it like this study today is that you know let's go back to the study today -- it -- we have a big.
Miss trust of doctors.
In lesson how lovingly you are and gentle and everything but why why do we have this mistrust well one I guess I would say -- -- got so expensive.
Well that's true and -- it accessible we have our secretaries giving all the results -- we wait for two hour drive that we.
Advertisements -- down on the overhead is up and doctors are hiring more nurse practitioners out against all of that -- the -- the old fashioned family doctor because you know what.
It will cause more -- and we'll prevent people from going too quickly alternative treatments not that the alternative treatments are bunk but they really -- not something that are not -- They're they're known for having a better doctor patient relationship the alternative medicine practitioner -- -- yeah.
Yeah you go don't I will say too by the way that that -- -- flip side of the placebo is that all these people told me I shouldn't be doing this healthy stuff in -- injecting the antibiotics.
That got into my head and I kept thinking maybe -- should be doing this as I'm doing it.
Gotta stay on top of that do.
Right we have to not only -- -- we also have to promote our own treatment some of which come from.
Americans you know that's so interest that you can say that people look don't think this is some chemical that's been in the -- some of our best treatment that Jackson some of the antibiotics -- a couple of want to thank you so much thank you good to see if they did laugh --
