7 Common Arguments for Alternative Medicine DEBUNKED
TWITTER: https://twitter.com/gm_skeptic 7 Common Arguments for Alternative Debunked Alternative medicine proponents argue for their viewpoints in similar ways to religious apologists. Their arguments are just as ill-informed and irrational as any religious fundamentalist’s. So, debunking them takes little more than basic critical thinking skills and a little understanding of how drugs are researched and regulated. Naturopathy is pseudoscience, essential oils don’t work, homeopathy is a scam, the supplement industry is bogus, and the terrible arguments their proponents present are definitely no help. The claims I debunk are as follows: 1. There are no side effects 2. I’ve experienced it and it works 3. It's been used for thousands of years 4. There’s research about it 5. Big pharma is all about money and alternative medicine isn’t 6. Pharmaceuticals are derived from plant extracts, so you might as well take the “real thing” 7. God made it so it must be the perfect medicine SUBSCRIBE for more videos on pseudoscience, skepticism, and atheism!

TEDxTerryTalks - Ratib Islam - Alternative Medicine: Challenging the Language of Insulation
Ratib Islam provides a measured look at the rhetoric of alternative medicines, and explores its lack of distinction between evidence based and non evidence based claims. Ratib is a 6th year B.Sc. student, majoring in biochemistry with a minor in philosophy. He became interested in alternative medicine in 2009 when naturopaths were recognized as physicians and doctors, capable of prescribing drugs previously restricted to physicians with MDs. As a result, he co-founded a club, with two medical students and a medical graduate student, called UBC Students for Science Based Medicine to educate the public about alternative medicine from a critical approach. There aim is not to debunk or offer medical advice, but to educate and empower consumers by translating otherwise inaccessible information and obscure concepts. This is largely due to the risks of relying on unsubstantiated therapies and the lack of people engaged in this kind of service. Club website: http:/www.sbmubc.org November 5th, 2011.

The Alternative Medicine Racket: How the Feds Fund Quacks
Behind the dubious medical claims of Dr. Mehmet Oz and Deepak Chopra is a decades-long strategy to promote alternative medicine to the American public. Twenty-three years ago, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) began to investigate a wide variety of unconventional medical practices from around the world. Five-and-a-half billion dollars later, the NIH's funding of complementary and integrative care has found no cures for disease. But it has succeeded in bringing every kind of quackery — from faith healing to homeopathy — out of the shadows and into the heart of the American medical establishment.

No Scientific Evidence for Alternative Medicine?
We cannot be scientific about internal experience. How we feel and think changes from one moment to the next. The only evidence that we can get for alternative therapies is asking clients directly if they felt better or not. This has to be good enough. Trying to be scientific about human experience is akin to working out the emotions of a machine. Science is not emotional or experiential. You cannot predict reliably how a person will react, what will happen in their lives, and how this will affect symptoms. We hopefully do not live like reproduce-able lab rats. Instead of waiting for a dry report that says 23 out of 30 people experienced a 23% improvement in symptoms, which has to overlook most human experience, find out how you are and how you respond to therapy for yourself! Most therapists are bound by confidentiality and find it unethical to turn clients into research guinea-pigs. This approach has an impact on deep work.

We shouldn’t use labels like “Alternative” and “Conventional” Medicine
What is alternative medicine? Does alternative medicine work? The University of Toronto recently stirred up a bit of controversy by uncritically offering a class on "Alternative Medicine." When people looked at the coursework, which included many studies debunked by this channel, some people started to freak out. The issue highlights a much larger problem: No one is sure how best to teach that subject. The dichotomy, however, between alternative and traditional medicine, or between Eastern and Western medicine, is a false one. We would be much better off if we could reframe the issue. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This episode was based on a post I wrote for the Upshot.

Fairy Tale Science and Placebo Medicine - Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)
http://facebook.com/ScienceReason ... Harriet Hall with her talk "Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM): Fairy Tale Science and Placebo Medicine", World Skeptics Congress 2012 in Berlin. Introduction by Willem Betz. --- More videos of the World Skeptics Congress will be uploaded to the following channels: • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/RationalHumanism • http://www.youtube.com/WissensMagazin Please don't forget to subscribe! Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL602E2CD13B5D203C --- Harriet Hall, MD, aka "The SkepDoc," is a retired family physician and former Air Force flight surgeon who writes prolifically about science, critical thinking, alternative medicine, and quackery. She is a CSI fellow, a contributing editor to both Skeptic and Skeptical Inquirer magazines, an editor of the Science-Based Medicine blog, an adviser to the Quackwatch website, a founding fellow of the Institute for Science in Medicine, and is on the editorial review board of the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. --- Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an artificial category covering a wide variety of treatments that are dubious, untested, or inadequately tested. Medicine that has been proven to work is just "medicine" -- not CAM. Science is the only reliable way to find out if a treatment really works, and proponents of CAM have recognized the need for scientific studies to support their claims. Unfortunately, good science requires more than just getting positive results from a controlled study. When therapies based on fantasy are studied with the tools of science, it produces confusing noise. Studying how much money the Tooth Fairy leaves under the pillow doesn't prove she exists. Pragmatic studies give an unfair advantage to treatments that have no specific effects but are dressed up like Cinderella with non-specific effects. Energy medicine modalities like Therapeutic Touch are a bit like the Emperor's New Clothes: they have impressed adults with apparently supporting studies; but a 9 year old child, Emily Rosa, pointed out their nakedness with a simple experiment showing that practitioners were deceiving themselves. Meta-analyses and systematic reviews are often flawed, especially when applied to improbable modalities. When science shows that a CAM treatment works no better than placebo, some CAM advocates accept the results but argue that we should use the treatment anyway, because placebos make patients feel better. This constitutes a double standard, because we wouldn't accept that argument for prescription drugs. Prescribing placebos is unethical, and placebo use can lead to harm in several different ways. There is only one science, and it must be rigorously applied to determine the effectiveness and safety of any treatment, whether alternative or mainstream. Recent emphasis on evidence-based medicine (EBM) is encouraging, but in practice EBM tends not to give enough consideration to basic science and prior probability. We need truly science-based medicine to determine whether CAM treatments really work. --- World Skeptics Congress: Promoting Science and Critical Thinking in a World of Uncertainty. Why do people turn to pseudoscience for help? What makes alternative medicine so attractive - and how can we find out what really works? Why is it so difficult for us to deal with risk and uncertainty in a rational way? Can we teach children to think critically and scientifically? And how can academic disciplines like biology or psychology protect themselves from pseudoscientific contamination? The 6th World Skeptics Congress in Berlin was an intellectually stimulating three-day event dealing with paranormal and supernatural claims, fringe science issues, and scams. Major topics at this event were science and pseudoscience in education, in particular anti-evolution claims and origin myths, and the problems of risk and benefit assessment, especially in alternative medicine. Gerd Antes, Wim Betz, Johan Braeckman, Edzard Ernst, Chris French, Luigi Garlaschelli, Harriet Hall, Ray Hyman, Chris Mooney, Simon Perry, Massimo Polidoro, James Randi, Gita Sahgal, Eugenie Scott, Simon Singh, Samantha Stein, Kylie Sturgess, Rebecca Watson and Tomasz Witkowski are just some of the world-renowned presenters who took part, taking apart the claims and conspiracies of the modern world. • http://www.worldskeptics.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/worldskepticscongress2012 • http://www.gwup.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/gwup.org --- Tags: complementary alternative placebo medicine cam fairy tale science treatments studies harriet hall homeopathy pseudoscience education skeptical rational critical thinking skepticism world skeptics congress 2012 berlin .

Alternative Medicine is Quackery
Filmed in India during the Debating Matters India finals, this gripping debate never fails to engage. Practitioners of modern medicine demystify and challenge alternative medicine in defence of scientific rigour, testing and the reproducibility of treatments. Advocates of alternative medicine claim a holistic approach which is person specific that can not be validated using established methods. The debate gets heated as professor Simon Wessely points out that he is a practitioner of modern medicine by day but like many parents resorts to homeopathy when he goes home. When one of his children comes home with a bruised knee from the playground he kisses it better, but he says, "this is not medicine."

Professor Kathy Sykes, a telegenic scientist from Bristol University, presents a new series on alternative therapies, starting with hypnotherapy. Trying to combine hard science with populist telly, she asks the one big question -- does it work? The answer is a qualified yes. She watches a woman having two teeth pulled out under hypnosis without any local anaesthetic. The patient feels virtually no pain and her pulse rate remains flat, while Professor Sykes is nearly sick. But there seems to be almost no scientific explanation as to how it works. Claims that it can help people to lose weight or give up smoking may be true, but -- according to this programme -- it's no use when it comes to breast enhancement. Lest you were wondering.

Ernst was appointed Professor of Complementary Medicine at the University of Exeter, the first such academic position in the world. Edzard Ernst served as chairman of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) at the University of Vienna, but left this position in 1993 to set up the department of Complementary Medicine at the University of Exeter in England. He became director of complementary medicine of the Peninsula Medical School (PMS) in 2002. Ernst was the first occupant of the Laing chair in Complementary Medicine, retiring in 2011.

Edzard Ernst is the editor-in-chief of two medical journals: Perfusion and Focus on Alternative and Complementary Therapies. Ernst's writing appeared in a regular column in The Guardian, where he reviewed news stories about complementary medicine from an evidence-based medicine perspective.[3] Since his research began on alternative modalities, Ernst has become "the scourge of alternative medicine" for publishing critical research that exposes methods that lack documentation of efficacy. Prof. Ernst qualified as a physician in Germany in 1978 where he also completed his M.D. and Ph.D. theses. he has received training in acupuncture, autogenic training, herbalism, homoeopathy, massage therapy and spinal manipulation. Edzard Ernst never formally registered as a homeopath, despite training as a homeopath and beginning his medical career at a homeopathic hospital in Munich. In 1988, he became Professor in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) at Hannover Medical School and in 1990 Head of the PMR Department at the University of Vienna.

6/7/2019 Evidence Based? The Role of Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Modern Health Care
Matthew Brunner, MD Bridges Family Endowed Chief Resident Clinical Instructor/Chief Resident University of Wisconsin- Madison Department of Medicine
CAM: Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Saving Quality of Life and Our Economy
Complementary and Alternative medicine is not only evidence based, but the evidence for it's healthcare cost savings is irrefutable. Our healthcare costs are out of control because we have a system based on Disease Management and not Health Care. Primary care should be prevention and wellness based, spotting and intervening on trends. 60% of all deaths are now due to chronic disease and it is all preventable. However, even according to JAMA the allopathic health system is not preventing it. Even worse 70-75% of all our health care dollars are being spent on preventable chronic disease and it's bankrupting us. In this video Dr. Rick Brinkman will show how our medical system got turned upside down, how CAM can save us from our health care crisis and he will also show a clear path of personal responsibility that will change our world. Dr. Rick Brinkman is an internationally famous speaker, trainer and co-author of 5 McGraw-Hill books including the international best seller, Dealing with People You Can't Stand, which is translated in 23 languages and used as a text in graduate and undergraduate schools. He is a naturopathic physician by training and focused on mind/body medicine. He found that people's communication / relationship issues as well as life fulfillment issues could create physical symptoms. He is a professional speaker, addressing audiences as large as 8000 people. His clients include: NASA, Lockheed Martin, Well Fargo, Sony Pictures, LucasFilm, the FBI, Department of Defense and countless associations. He is known for his trademark style of 'Educating through Entertainment', using comedy and story telling to make the learnings memorable.

Is There an Alternative Medicine?
Transcript: Hello and welcome. I'm Dr. George Lundberg and this is At Large at MedPage Today. There is no Alternative Medicine. Thus sprach Phil Fontanarosa and me in a 1998 JAMA editorial in the famous theme issue dedicated to Complementary and Alternative Medicine ... hmmm. So I went to Mr. Google in 2010 and entered ... Alternative Medicine ... and clicked -- 41,200,000 results, uuooo; entered Complementary and Alternative Medicine, click -- 3,210,000 results; entered CAM, click -- 191,000,000 results, but that's not fair; CAM can stand for many unrelated topics. Let's try quackery on Mr. Google, click -- "only" 818,000 results. Hmm. Meanwhile, back to that 1998 JAMA editorial. "There is no alternative medicine. There is only scientifically proven, evidence-based medicine supported by solid data or unproven medicine, for which scientific evidence is lacking." But actually there are three piles:You have a test or treatment that has itself been tested and found to be safe and effective. Use it; pay for it.You have a test or treatment that has been found to be unsafe or ineffective. Don't use it; don't pay for it.You have a test or treatment that is scientifically plausible, meaning not preposterous. Test it AND then put it into one of the other two piles. This 1998 JAMA theme issue is credited or blamed by many with opening the door for conversation, study, and serious research. It even promoted respectful consideration of the practices of patients and practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine, since the practices were common, communication almost nonexistent, and understanding veiled at best. What has happened since 1998? A large amount of serious research into previously unstudied practices, largely funded by the NIH, has resulted in many articles in mainstream journals. And, guess what, almost ALL of the long-term traditional CAM practices have been found to be safe but INEFFECTIVE. And what has happened in practice? The American Medical Marketing Machine (AMMM) has done its thing. As the published scientific studies have one by one found CAM practices to be ineffective, more Americans are using CAM than ever. And, such use often is now in mainstream institutions, sterilized, and sold as "Integrative Medicine," which Mr. Google numbers at 1,230,000 results. Looks like there will always be snake oil sellers as long as there are snake oil buyers. That's my opinion. I'm Dr. George Lundberg, At Large for MedPage Today.

Having learnt some basic meditation for herself at a monastery in the foothills of the Himalayas, Kathy sets off to find out what science can tell her about the experiences she's had. Her investigation takes her down two routes -- can meditation improve your body, and can it improve your mind? In the US she learns how her body responds when she meditates, and hears from a patient who believes the practice has given him his life back. From there, she journeys deeper into America, to a unique city which gathers together twice a day to meditate. She hears their claims for meditation's health benefits, and is given a rare demonstration of yogic flying. But can meditation really deliver what its advocates claim? Weighing up the evidence is a challenge, and Kathy discovers just how difficult it is to get any definitive answers. But, back in the UK, she finds a form of meditation that is gaining some acceptance as a treatment. It is used in a new therapy for depression - and is available on the NHS. Kathy talks to researchers who believe meditation has amazing potential to change our brains. From a neuroscientist inspired by the Dalai Lama, to a Boston researcher who is taking measurements of meditators' brains, Kathy meets mainstream scientists fascinated by the possibilities of meditation. And in an intriguing insight into state-of-the art neuroscience, she hears how these scientists are investigating whether meditation can help improve our emotional wellbeing - and even change the structure of our brains. Their hypothesis is that meditation can make you happier, more compassionate and more in control of your emotions. So does meditation really have potential for us all?

Evidence-Based Holistic Medicine ft. Dr. Felice Gersh || HVMN Enhancement Podcast: Ep. 52
Dr. Felice Gersh is a rare combination of a Board Certified OB/GYN who is also fellowship trained in Integrative Medicine. Her career has evolved over the years into one which utilizes the most cutting-edge and high-tech diagnostic testing, while incorporating science-based therapies – from the herbal to the surgical – to assist in the healing process. "I don’t do things that aren’t tried and true and evidence-based. Part of the difference from me and the other natural paths, is the way I researched and learned cell biology and biochemistry…I take a lot of what they do and find the science to really explain it.” “That’s what it takes, right? If we really want to change how health care is thought about, we have to target the people who are actively practicing medicine and educating the everyday patient how to be more self aware and armed about their own performance and health.”

The Doctor Who Gave Up Drugs: Episode 1 (Medical Documentary) - Real Stories
Dr Chris Van Tulleken is embarking on a daring medical experiment that could change the way we think about our health forever. Britain is addicted to prescription drugs. They’re doing us more harm than good, the evidence for their efficacy is wafer-thin and they’re costing the NHS a fortune. It’s a medical crisis – and Chris is determined to do something about it. So he’s setting up a radical new drug-free clinic in a busy GP surgery. For three months, he’s going to treat illnesses without antibiotics, control pain without painkillers, and wean some of Britain’s most drug-dependent patients off their “life-saving” drug regimes. Instead of giving his patients medicine, he’s going to take their medicine away. Want to watch more full-length Documentaries?

Cupping Therapy: Alternative Medicine for Pain, Immunity & Digestion
Relatively unknown to most people living in the West until recently, cupping therapy is an alternative therapeutic method that has been popular in China since around 1000 B.C. Some records show that variations of cupping practices might actually be much older. Cupping therapy has a host of health benefits that can often outweigh modern medicine techniques. One of the biggest advantages to trying alternative practices like cupping therapy, acupuncture or massage therapy is that these methods don’t pose the risk for unwanted side effects like pharmacological drugs or surgery do. In fact, there’s really no downside to trying alternative practices like cupping, since studies show they can help boost immune function and speed up healing time without the use of any medications or even herbs.

Alternative Medicine and Pseudoscience with Scott Gavura
Toronto. May 28, 2010. Despite the dramatic improvements in the extent and quality of our lives, largely owing to modern medicine, our current health care system has fostered a backlash, manifested in part by the emergence of non-science-based "alternative" health care practices . This trend has driven a need for dialogue on how best we should balance evidence-based decisions against demands for consumer choice - regardless of the science. In this presentation, Scott Gavura discusses how health care decision-making differs from all other goods and services, and how this impacts on the choices we make, both as individuals, and in aggregate. Through an interactive discussion, he facilitates a dialogue on the opportunities for science advocates to effect positive change in health at the patient- and population-level. Scott Gavura , BScPhm, MBA is passionate about improving the use of medications. As a pharmacist working in the Ontario cancer system, he scrutinizes and manages how very expensive cancer drugs are used. He also founded the Science-Based Pharmacy blog, to begin a discussion within and about the pharmacy profession's role in supporting science-based care. Scott has a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree and a Masters of Business Administration degree from the University of Toronto, and has completed a Accredited Canadian Hospital Pharmacy.

How Alternative Medicine Has Infiltrated U.S. Medical Schools - Steven Salzberg
Presented by the National Capital Area Skeptics - www.ncas.org. Alternative medicine has become very popular over the past two decades, thanks to relentless promotion by the media, politicians, and a few highly visible celebrity doctors. Since the early 1990s, the NIH has spent over $2 billion studying complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), but has yet to show that any "alternative" treatment is effective. Part of this funding has been dedicated to establishing training programs in U.S. medical schools. Through these programs, doctors-to-be today learn about treatments based on acupuncture and homeopathy that are little more than magical thinking. In the middle of an intensive training program, most medical students do not have time and are not encouraged to question these practices. These same academic medical centers that host these training programs also offer CAM therapies to unsuspecting patients. This talk reviews some of the CAM topics now taught and practiced at major U.S. medical schools, and will discuss some of the conditions for which these CAM methods are used, including chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders, and cancer. It will also cover the largely unscientific basis of these methods, and explain why proponents have succeeded in convincing both doc tors and patients that CAM is "worth a try" for many disorders. Steven Salzberg is an expert on genomics and DNA sequencing whose lab has developed many of the methods used to decode and analyze genomes over the past two decades. He participated in the Human Genome Project and dozens of other genome projects for many plant, animal, and bacterial species He co-founded the Influenza Genome Sequencing Project and helped to decode the bacteria used in the 2001 anthrax attacks. He is currently Professor of Medicine, Biostatistics, and Computer Science and Director of the Center for Computational Biology in the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins University. He holds undergraduate and Masters degrees from Yale University and a Ph.D. in computer science from Harvard University. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the International Society for Computational Biology. He writes a widely-read column on science and pseudoscience for Forbes magazine, at forbes.com/sites/stevensalzberg, which received the 2012 Balles Prize in Critical Thinking from the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.

Episode 9 − Health Claims: Making sense of alternative medicine
We've seen that what we perceive and remember is literally shaped by our experiences and expectations. The placebo effect is another example of this phenomenon. Symptoms improve with treatments that have no active ingredients. We introduce several reasons for this effect along with beliefs that "natural" is better, and perceived risks of vaccination.
