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 .

Complementary and Alternative Medicine - What You Need To Know
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard care. Standard care is what medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy, and allied health professionals, such as nurses and physical therapists, practice. Complementary medicine is used together with standard medical care. An example is using acupuncture to help with side effects of cancer treatment. Alternative medicine is used in place of standard medical care. An example is treating heart disease with chelation therapy (which seeks to remove excess metals from the blood) instead of using a standard approach. The claims that CAM treatment providers make can sound promising. However, researchers do not know how safe many CAM treatments are or how well they work. Studies are underway to determine the safety and usefulness of many CAM practices. To minimize the health risks of a CAM treatment Discuss it with your doctor. It might have side effects or interact with other medicines Find out what the research says about it Choose CAM practitioners carefully Tell all of your doctors and practitioners which CAM and standard treatments you use NIH: National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine

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.

The Placebo Effect
In this clip (9 of 11): How much of what we see as acupuncture's effects may be related to the placebo effect (e.g., from patient expectations)? This is an important question. This clip is part of the lecture "Neurobiological Correlates of Acupuncture: Modern Science Explores Ancient Practice," by Bruce R. Rosen, MD, PhD. Dr. Rosen is professor of radiology at the Harvard Medical School, professor of health science and technology at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology, and director of the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital. This lecture, given at NIH in 2005, is part of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine Online Continuing Education Series.

Prince Charles 'sells snake oil' – Edzard Ernst on alternative medicine 'dangerous' to NHS
Watch the full episode here: http://bit.ly/GU178 Edzard Ernst, expert on evidence based analysis of alternative medicine and author of ‘A Scientist in Wonderland’, talks to Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi about the efficacies of such treatments, and whether recent government suggestions that they should be integrated into the NHS are such a good idea. He gave up a professorship in Vienna to move to Britain to study the subject because alternative medicine is a 'paradise for any researcher' because there are so many unanswered questions. He saw miraculous cures effected by homeopathy such as people getting out of wheelchairs, and says you have to question if it is down to homeopathy or to the placebo effect. The challenge with studying this is creating a placebo alternative to the real thing, and his solutions included actors portraying psychic healing and needles that did not pierce the skin for acupuncture. His study showed actors were actually better than healers at stopping pain, but many said he should not publish that because it would deprive pain sufferers of the placebo effect they gain from the treatment. He argues 'you can only make progress in medicine if you tell the truth,' saying that whilst the placebo effect may alleviate suffering, it does not save lives. He says it is a 'fallacy' that because something has been around for centuries it must work, citing bloodletting as an example that killed millions. He says that chiropractic treatment is 'just as wacky' as homeopathy, and the proof it works just as poor. He says the risks come from people genuinely using it as an alternative to serious conditions like cancer, where alternative medicine goes from being harmless to 'life-threatening.' In the present Ebola outbreak a team of homeopaths went to Liberia to cure the outbreak, and he says if they are 'so deluded' to think they can achieve that, 'one wonders what they do to their patients in everyday practice.' He describes David Treddinick, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare and an advocate for alternative medicine including homeopathy and astrology, as 'really dangerous' and on a mission to integrate homeopathy and other treatments into the NHS. He had a complaint lodged with his vice-chancellor by Prince Charles' private secretary, alleging he broke confidence on a document about the economical effects of integrating alternative medicine in the NHS by critiquing it as 'irresponsibly misguided.' He says the Prince is a 'snake oil salesman' for selling Duchy Originals Detox Tincture, and believes that it is 'crazily naïve' to believe that detox products work, describing them as 'bogus... also dangerous' as it leads to people thinking they can overindulge, take the tincture, and everything will be fine, which is not true.

REBUTTAL: 5 Similarities Between Religion and Alternative Medicine
BLOG: http://blog.watershed.net/?p=7035 This video is a response to Drew's video: https://youtu.be/fJXPcuwkYlg YouTuber Drew from "Genetically Modified Skeptic " attempts to align religion with alternative medicine. Honestly, I'm not sure what alternative medicine exactly is, or how it's defined. According to Drew, both religion and alternative medicine (natural health) are pretty much the same thing. I debate those points with our friend Drew in this video.

Although I had some preconceived notions, I attempted to enter my reiki session as unassuming as possible. However, after my reiki treatment, I felt I had good reasons to remain unconvinced that reiki healing has much merit. It seems that the practitioners’ claims relied on anecdotal evidence and the experience of the placebo effect. In that way, reiki is much like other forms of alternative medicine.

Reiki Master ASMR
Doctor Andrew Michaels wants to help you with Remote Healing through Reiki hand movements and whispering. Personal Attention sleep aid by request. Reiki (霊気) (/ˈreɪkiː/) is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Since originating in Japan, Reiki has been adapted into varying cultural traditions across the world. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is allegedly transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. Reiki's teachings and adherents claim that qi is physiological and can be manipulated to treat a disease or condition. The existence of qi has not been established by medical research. Therefore, Reiki is a pseudoscientific theory based on metaphysical concepts. The existence of the proposed mechanism for Reiki – qi or "life force" energy – has not been established. Most research on Reiki is poorly designed and prone to bias. There is no reliable empirical evidence that Reiki is helpful for treating any medical condition, although some physicians have said it might help promote general well-being. In 2011, William T. Jarvis of The National Council Against Health Fraud stated that there "is no evidence that clinical Reiki's effects are due to anything other than suggestion" or the placebo effect.

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a term used for an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia. ASMR signifies the subjective experience of "low-grade euphoria" characterised by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin". It is most commonly triggered by specific acoustic, visual and digital media stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attentional control.

Lecture 2  What is CAM
Lecture 1 was about what science-based medicine is; this lecture is about what it isn’t and includes a discussion of placebo effects. CAM stands for complementary and alternative medicine. CAM was once defined as “stuff that isn’t taught in medical schools.” CAM is a shortcut from idea to bedside, bypassing good science. The growing popularity of CAM may be attributed to multiple factors, including misunderstandings about science and a distrust of the medical establishment.

What is Alternative medicine
What is Alternative medicine. The meaning of Alternative medicine pronunciation Alternative medicine definition Alternative medicine How to say Alternative medicine Alternative medicine , fringe medicine , pseudomedicine or simply questionable medicine is the use and promotion of practices which are unproven, disproven, impossible to prove, or excessively harmful in relation to their effect — in the attempt to achieve the healing effects of medicine. They differ from experimental medicine in that the latter employs responsible investigation, and accepts results that show it to be ineffective. The scientific consensus is that alternative therapies either do not, or cannot, work. In some cases laws of nature are violated by their basic claims; in some the treatment is so much worse that its use is unethical. Alternative practices, products, and therapies range from only ineffective to having known harmful and toxic effects. Alternative therapies may be credited for perceived improvement through placebo effects, decreased use or effect of medical treatment (and therefore either decreased side effects; or nocebo effects towards standard treatment), or the natural course of the condition or disease. Alternative treatment is not the same as experimental treatment or traditional medicine, although both can be misused in ways that are alternative. Alternative or complementary medicine is dangerous because it may discourage people from getting the best possible treatment, and may lead to a false understanding of the body and of science. Alternative medicine is used by a significant number of people, though its popularity is often overstated. Large amounts of funding go to testing alternative medicine, with more than US$2.5 billion spent by the United States government alone. Almost none show any effect beyond that of false treatment, and most studies showing any effect have been statistical flukes. Alternative medicine is a highly profitable industry, with a strong lobby. This fact is often overlooked by media or intentionally kept hidden, with alternative practice being portrayed positively when compared to "big pharma". The lobby has successfully pushed for alternative therapies to be subject to far less regulation than conventional medicine. Alternative therapies may even be allowed to promote use when there is demonstrably no effect, only a tradition of use. Regulation and licensing of alternative medicine and health care providers varies between and within countries. Despite laws making it illegal to market or promote alternative therapies for use in cancer treatment, many practitioners promote them. Alternative medicine is criticized for taking advantage of the weakest members of society. For example, the United States National Institutes of Health department studying alternative medicine, currently named National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, was established as the Office of Alternative Medicine and was renamed the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine before obtaining its current name. Therapies are often framed as "natural" or "holistic", in apparent opposition to conventional medicine which is "artificial" and "narrow in scope", statements which are intentionally misleading. When used together with functional medical treatment, alternative therapies do not "complement" (improve the effect of, or mitigate the side effects of) treatment. Significant drug interactions caused by alternative therapies may instead negatively impact functional treatment, making it less effective, notably in cancer. Alternative diagnoses and treatments are not part of medicine, or of science- based curricula in medical schools, nor are they used in any practice based on scientific knowledge or experience. Alternative therapies are often based on religious belief, tradition, superstition, belief in supernatural energies, pseudoscience, errors in reasoning, propaganda, fraud, or lies. Alternative medicine is based on misleading statements, quackery, pseudoscience, antiscience, fraud, and poor scientific methodology. Promoting alternative medicine has been called dangerous and unethical. Testing alternative medicine that has no scientific basis has been called a waste of scarce research resources. Critics state that "there is really no such thing as alternative medicine, just medicine that works and medicine that doesn't", that the very idea of "alternative" treatments is paradoxical, as any treatment proven to work is by definition "medicine".Thanks for Watching please like and subscribe!

It needs to be added, though, that even if the placebo effect is undoubtedly present for SSRIs, this type of drugs is also a very destructive neurotoxin, and the severe side-effects from it are absolutely real. http://toxicantidepressants.fr Irving Kirsch is Associate Director of the Program in Placebo Studies and a lecturer in medicine at the Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

https://arogyadham.page.tl/ Acupressure [from Latin acus "needle" (see acuity) + pressure (n.)[1]] is an alternative medicine technique similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices. Some medical studies have suggested that acupressure may be effective at helping manage nausea and vomiting, for helping lower back pain, tension headaches, stomach ache, among other things, although such studies have been found to have a high likelihood of bias.[2] Like many alternative medicines, it may benefit from a placebo effect.

Homeopathic preparations are not effective for treating any condition;large-scale studies have found homeopathy to be no more effective than a placebo, indicating that any positive effects that follow treatment are only due to the placebo effect, normal recovery from illness, or regression toward the mean. Hahnemann believed the underlying causes of disease were phenomena that he termed miasms, and that homeopathic preparations addressed these. The preparations are manufactured using a process of homeopathic dilution, in which a chosen substance is repeatedly diluted in alcohol or distilled water, each time with the containing vessel being bashed against an elastic material, (commonly a leather-bound book). Dilution typically continues well past the point where no molecules of the original substance remain.Homeopaths select homeopathicsby consulting reference books known as repertories, and by considering the totality of the patient's symptoms, personal traits, physical and psychological state, and life history. Homeopathy is not a plausible system of treatment, as its dogmas about how drugs, illness, the human body, liquids and solutions operate are contradicted by a wide range of discoveries across biology, psychology, physics and chemistry made in the two centuries since its invention.Although some clinical trials produce positive results, multiple systematic reviews have indicated that this is because of chance, flawed research methods, and reporting bias. Continued homeopathic practice, despite the evidence that it does not work, has been criticized as unethical because it discourages the use of effective treatments, with the World Health Organization warning against using homeopathy to try to treat severe diseases such as HIV and malaria.The continued practice of homeopathy, despite a lack of evidence of efficacy,has led to it being characterized within the scientific and medical communities as nonsense, quackeryand a sham. Assessments by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council, the United Kingdom's House of Commons Science and Technology Committee and the Swiss Federal Health Office have each concluded that homeopathy is ineffective, and recommended against the practice receiving any further funding.The UK National Health Service has announced a ban on the provision of homeopathic medicine because it is "a misuse of resources". Sinusitis, also known as a sinus infection or rhinosinusitis, is inflammation of the sinuses resulting in symptoms. Common signs and symptoms include thick nasal mucus, a plugged nose, and pain in the face. Other signs and symptoms may include fever, headaches, poor sense of smell, sore throat, and cough.The cough is often worse at night. Serious complications are rare. It is defined as acute rhinosinusitis (ARS) if it lasts less than 4 weeks, and as chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) if it lasts for more than 12 weeks. Sinusitis can be caused by infection, allergies, air pollution, or structural problems in the nose. Most cases are caused by a viral infection. A bacterial infection may be present if symptoms last more than ten days or if a person worsens after starting to improve. Recurrent episodes are more likely in people with asthma, cystic fibrosis, and poor immune function. X-rays are not typically needed unless complications are suspected. In chronic cases confirmatory testing is recommended by either direct visualization or computed tomography. Some cases may be prevented by hand washing, avoiding smoking, and immunization. Pain killers such as naproxen, nasal steroids, and nasal irrigation may be used to help with symptoms.Recommended initial treatment for ARS is watchful waiting.If symptoms do not improve in 7–10 days or get worse, then an antibiotic may be used or changed. In those in whom antibiotics are used, either amoxicillin or amoxicillin/clavulanate is recommended first line.Surgery may occasionally be used in people with chronic disease. Sinusitis is a common condition.It affects between about 10% and 30% of people each year in the United States and Europe. Women are more often affected than men. Chronic sinusitis affects approximately 12.5% of people.Treatment of sinusitis in the United States results in more than 11 billion USD in costs.The unnecessary and ineffective treatment of viral sinusitis with antibiotics is common.
