Don't get me wrong - I am not at all against alternative health. In fact, I frequently use homeopathy, herbs, and other alternative methods. However, I do have a healthy level of skepticism... I do not buy everything that everyone tells me I should buy! That's why I wanted to know about proof from someone who wasn't making money off of the product. It wouldn't be a big deal if it were an inexpensive product, but not all of us are wealthy. My income is under the federal poverty level, so I definitely have to pick and choose. I spend more money on alternative health products than anything else. For someone who has VERY little money to go around, $189 is out of the question unless it has been proven to work.
