Then I watched my grandfather go through the same thing for his issues, surprise surprise nothing helped. Sure they might be able to diagnose things that western medicine overlooks, but the treatments are bologna. They also sell false promises which is even worse than what pharmaceutical companies do, at least their drugs work.
Remember, alternative medicine killed Steve Jobs.
