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 .

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.

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

How Peaceful Religion Kills | Religion as a Placebo
How Peaceful Religion Kills | Religion as a Placebo Faith healing proves that even peaceful religion can kill. Children dying in Christian Science and Followers of Christ is a regular occurrence. Reliance on placebo rather than on science based medicine is dangerous, and it’s easy to see why. Whether it’s cancer treatment, mental health care, or a time of crisis, you’re better off trusting science, because prayer doesn’t work.

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.

Ted Kaptchuk, On The Placebo Effect
Ted Kaptchuk, Associate Professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School and director of the Program in Placebo Studies & the Therapeutic Encounter, answers questions on the placebo effect. What are placebo studies? Is the placebo effect a social phenomena? Could we use the placebo effect to design better healthcare facilities? Can placebo cure patients, or are they only palliative? Was the use of placebos common in the past? Is it possible to use placebos without deception?

The science of using your expectations to relieve pain
The placebo effect influences all types of healing, from yoga to laying of hands to remedies in your doctor's office. While researching his book, “Suggestible You”, on the science of belief, science writer Erik Vance visited healers in the U.S., China and Mexico. He has been blessed, cursed and tortured in countless ways. He joined ScienceScope to journey from Mexico to Maryland to show how these beliefs influence healing. This work was done in cooperation with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body. It is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). TCM theory and practice are not based upon scientific knowledge, and acupuncture is a pseudoscience. There is a diverse range of acupuncture theories based on different philosophies, and techniques vary depending on the country. The method used in TCM is likely the most widespread in the United States. It is most often used for pain relief, though it is also used for a wide range of other conditions. Acupuncture is generally used only in combination with other forms of treatment. Acupuncture is generally thought of as having a Placebo effect with most patients. Doctor Andrew Michaels uses a strange form of acupuncture to stop the pain in the legs of the Possessed Raggedy Andy Doll that his sister Raggedy Ann brought for treatment. Things get a little strange but the idea is to have some fun while getting poked with needles.

Skeptics Visit a Reiki Healer
TWITTER: https://twitter.com/gm_skeptic Abel’s twitter: https://twitter.com/AbelGarciaOrg Abel’s website: http://abelgarcia.org/ Skeptics Visit A Reiki Healer I visited a reiki master and the experience was interesting to say the least. Like anyone trying something new and unusual, I had several questions: Is reiki real? Is reiki a hoax? Is it a religion? 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.

Video Vlog. My Holistic Doctor Trip. Subscribe to My Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjzhljx1qVWwvJ0QuG3BNZg Don't get me wrong I believe in Holistic Doctors because Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health. ________________________________________________________ Here's a little bit of info on the subject: Alternative Medicine - Alternative medicine fringe medicine healing medicine effects. Contrary to popular belief, significant expense is paid to test alternative medicine, placebo; or are practices claimed to have the effects of but which are disproven, unproven, or impossible to prove, or are excessively harmful in relation to their effect; and where the scientific consensus does not, or can not, work because the known laws of nature is that the therapy are violated by its basic claims; or where it is considered so much worse than conventional treatment that it would be unethical science-based to offer as treatment. Alternative therapies or diagnoses are not part of medicine or healthcare systems. Alternative medicine consists of a wide variety of practices, products, and therapies—ranging from those that are biologically plausible, but not well tested, to those with known harmful and toxic including over $2.5 billion spent by the United States government. Almost none show any effect beyond that of false treatment. Perceived effects of alternative medicine may be caused by decreased effect of functional treatment (and therefore potentially decreased and regression toward the mean where improvement that would have occurred anyway is to alternative therapies; or any combination of the above. Alternative treatments are neither the same as experimental medicine, nor— although the latter, when used today may be considered alternative. - Wiki -

Alternative Medicine
From PHA's 2012 International PH Conference We know that vasodilator treatment improves exercise capacity and symptoms in patients with pulmonary hypertension. Besides medical treatments and modifications to lifestyle, there are several nutritional and dietary supplements on the market that claim to reduce leg swelling, enhance breathing and increase exercise capacity in people with PH and heart failure. This session will help raise greater awareness about various nutritional, herbal and dietary supplements in the context of PH. Panelists: Hector Cajigas, MD, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Mich.

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.

Why Do Placebos Work?
Placebos are treatments that don’t actually do anything. They have no medical effect and no active medicine. It's not a drug that is intended to improve your health. So why do they sometimes work? Well, it turns out your brain is super powerful - so powerful that it can even trick itself! Join Alie Astrocyte as she explores the fun facts about the neuroscience of placebos.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine - Can Do MS Webinar - March 8, 2011
MS is a chronic neurologic, immune-mediated disease affecting the central nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Currently there are eight FDA approved medications to treat the disease that have been rigorously tested, monitored for safety, and are closely regulated. However, these medications have their limitations; they are not cures, they do not treat symptoms, are expensive and have potential side effects. Therefore, many individuals living with MS may seek additional therapeutic modalities either to complement their current regimen or seek alternative treatments. There are a variety of alternative therapies, which unlike conventional medicine may not be scientifically tested or regulated. While many CAM interventions may improve quality of life, and provide symptom relief, others are very costly and may purport to "cure" or significantly impact MS with little, if any, scientific evidence. Fortunately, there are many interventions that may be recommended in complement to existing therapies and interventions (physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc.) by a healthcare provider (HCP) such as regular exercise (yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi), healthy eating, acupuncture, massage, aqua-therapy, and biofeedback. It is important to discuss all options (complementary or alternative agents) with your MS specialty healthcare provider to determine what may be helpful or harmful in treating MS. It is important to disclose all treatments even those prescribed by your primary care provider and other specialty HCPs that may include herbs, vitamins, minerals, supplements, antioxidants, tinctures, topical treatments, homeopathic or Oriental medical treatments, as well as other therapeutic regimens. Additionally, it is just as important to disclose other non-prescribed therapies such as recreational drug use, and experimental therapies ("liberation treatment" stem cell transplants, bee sting venom therapy, procarin, etc). These discussions and communication with a MS specialist is necessary to prevent any potential drug interactions with your current regimen but also to assess accurately any changes in your status that could be a result of additional therapeutic regimens. You can learn more about CAM in MS in resources that are recommended in the MS specialty community. These include "Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Multiple Sclerosis" by Allen Bowling MD, PhD., and the website "Alternative Medicine Website" www.ms-cam.org.
