Funny you should mention that. Funnier still is what gets classified as "snake oil," at least until a pharmaceutical company can figure out a way to make a profit.
For example, I can remember back when fish oil was routinely denounced by scientific journals. Eventually, the obvious benefits won out, and now there is <FONT color=#3300ff>a prescription available for it</FONT><FONT color=#3300ff>.</FONT>
Costs a bloody fortune, too. [Image: fish.gif]
For the most part, I have had good results with alternative regimens. I always discuss my choices with my doctor, and he is always interested to hear how something has worked out for me or a family member. So far, the homeopathic alternatives we have tried worked better than the allopathic remedies. Especially for a UTI.
About ACV... I tried it and I can definitely tell a difference in my allergy/sinusitis stuff. It doesn't completely cure it, but neither does ceclor, primatene, amoxil, zyrtec, septra, flonase, benadryl, sudafed, etc., ad infinitum, ad nauseum. ACV is a lot cheaper and there are no side effects; two points in its favor.
Just because something is a home remedy doesn't mean it doesn't work. Neither is it possible for a charlatan to detract from the inherently good properties of a product by false claims. So, lucky us- we can enjoy our ACV salads. Please pass the olive oil. [Image: gimmefood.gif]
