The purpose of this site is to collect lab research by medical doctors about herbs that are proven to treat illnesses and counter the false attacks on herbs by the medical industry and false claims by alternative medicine. I let the science tell the facts.

Nutrition Warning or Disclaimer: Vitamins, diets, and holistic therapies and products must not be assumed to be good without careful evaluation. The medical concern against holistic products stating that they are not regulated or have a standard for manufacturing have a sound basis for their complaints. I am not for FDA regulation yet there are serious problems from the commercialization of holistic products. As an example my research on EDTA found that many of the sites promoting an EDTA product claims that it helps clean the arteries, yet there is no proof of this anywhere that I can find. Yes there are numerous observations many by reputable doctors yet no scientific studies to verify the observations. This makes the observations no more than a testimonial by effected persons making the claims, likewise it does not disprove it either. The problem is that often the companies selling nutritional preparations build a marketing program to make a profit without valid scientific proof that the product does in fact do what they claim.

What does this all mean?

  • Holistic products usually have a sound basis for improving health.
  • Since there are no standards to use to evaluate one product against another there is no way to insure the product is what is claims to be. This applies to all nutrition even natural foods.
  • There is no way to determine if one brand has as much of a vitamin or herb as another.
  • Too many holistic products rely on testimonials not reliable research.
  • Too many holistic products take a proven fact obtained from valid research and expand it with unsubstantiated claims to make their product appear to be as good or better than it may be.
  • Beware of Individual testimonials which are less than worthless.
    • Why it is that marketers use and readers accept testimonials is beyond my comprehension.
    • They seldom have verification that the statement is from a real person.
    • It is not uncommon for a marketer to write testimonials and claim someone else wrote them.
    • There is no way to follow up on the person to see if a future problem does not occur.
    • There is no way to compare such statements with circumstances that may alter your experience.
    • It is like buying a certain brand of car. You may have an excellent experience, then the next year a bad experience with the same car or brand. How many times has a friend or family member recommended a certain brand of car or gadget and you had a bad experience with it?

This site recommends carefully evaluating any of our research and consult reliable medical personnel using caution in all health products or issues both traditional medical and homeopathic. It is probable that what we report on today will be outdated next month and it is impossible to keep up with all changes.
