show me specifically where i said conventional medicine has no benefits. you know, drawing a line between conventional and alternative medicine,and comparing the two is quite simplistic and silly really, especially when you consider that different countries follow different paths anyway. its all on a spectrum, its all relative... just terminology. my problem is with the symptomatic treatment of disease, and unfortuneatly, that is what is taught in us medical schools (in the area of chronic disease as opposed to trauma care). modern medicine is very very weak when one looks at the treatment of chonic disease, that is my point. it treats a symptom as a disease, and has become blind to this fact. sure alternative poeple do the same thing, the hacks that is. but i don't waste my time with hacks of either sort.
