So, should I take the treatment?

What do YOU think? Do you trust any of these treatments? Are there any you reject? If you were sick, what would YOU do?

That’s your call. We are not qualified to give medical advice. (In fact, wasn’t that question #5?) Only you can decide whether a given therapy is right for you. But you can sort the good ideas from the not-so-good by seriously thinking about the five basic questions:

  • What does it cost?
  • Is it effective?
  • What are the side effects?
  • How strong is the evidence?
  • Says who?

And always, consult with a trained medical professional before beginning any treatment.

i would say that any of these treatments if they benifit you go for it but be carefull with the whole needle thing because if they are not cleaned correctly or new or even transported cleanly they can cause serious harm to you this could go as far as life long diseases like herp and other things. although in my personal opinion the entire magnet thing is a sham even the dude on shark tank who owns the mavs said it is and his word is law

I have just finished reading this article and I think that this is not a hoax. It seems trustworthy. At first I had my doubts about the Gold Nanos but when I read it and saw that the people who wrote the article were not trying to sell anything or were biased, I believed that the nanos really seemed to help and were effective. Just saying! Also every other treatment (except statins) were scientifically proven, a hoax. Thanks for reading!

It seems that magnetic treatment has little to no value. Acuptuncture seems to be useful for certain individuals and should be talked about on a case by case basis and with a professional. The gold treatment seems like it has amazing potential but it would be wise to wait until futher human study has been done. Statins are widely accepted, but should be consulted with a doctor and discuss possible side effect, which can vary widely for each indivdual.

How can you say that? There is no scientific proof to back up this claim! Magnets are not supported by any science or scientific facts. Our body is not made up of metal, otheriwse we would set off the metal detectors at the airports.

I would not take statins. Even though recommended by Western Medical doctors, I have seen way too many people with serious side effects.
I would use and have used accupunture many times. Just because it has not been researched by our Western medicine, does not mean it doesn't work.
Who did this display? I would guess a western medicine doctor, pharmaceutical company or FDA.

Hi!
I have been a licensed acupuncturist with almost thirty years in practice in this country. I am licensed by the medical boards in four states as well as have a national certification from the NCCAOM.
Although I am well-trained in Eastern and Western Medicine, it seems as though 99 percent of my job is helping people to feel comfortable.
In 1994 the National Institute of Health announced that acupuncture was a well-established, accepted mode of treatment for many pain, neurological conditions, autoimmune and stress diseases as well as excellent for mitigating the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation in the treatment of cancer.
My patients love acupuncture and are helped by it. Do your research and go to see a licensed acupuncturist (www.nccaom.org) who has been in practice for some time and is kind to their patients.
Acupuncture works! Educate yourself!

I stongly dislike and have a fear of needles so i would probably go with the magnetic treatment. some peoplle say that needle therapy doesn't hurt at all because it doesn't puncture deep enough and the needle is s thin that you can hardly feel it. if didn't have phobia of needles I would probably use the needle therapy!!! I am ok with humans but i sometimes dislike them. sometimes they are mean and thats not cool.

I'd try the gold therapy. Nobody's allergic to pure gold which would attract attention to the location of the ailment and allow other treatments to zap it. It wouldn't have to be as long term as statins either.

I think it is important to understand the prominence of pharaceutical companies in western medicine. These companies have a lot invested in proving the health beenfits of their medicine. Perhaps we should consider the validity of tests performed in Eastern settings as well to compare to the results of our Western sudies.
