No I don't, and especially not to the same scale as the pharmacological establishment in the USA...for one thing many alternative medicines/practices are either cheap or free compared to what I've paid for brand pharmaceuticals, which are often marked up 1000s of % in terms of price and have a massive list of side effects. In comparison instance many herbal medicines can be grown in a garden by anybody, for nothing. Sure some can be harmful, but most aren't. There are a gazillion different herbal remedies you can put in tea or crush into powder for useful effects. They have been used for thousands of years in some parts of the world and there is of course medical study to support why they work at all... And yes I believe alternative practices are USUALLY harmless because as far as I know there is no great number of people dying, getting hurt, or getting sick from using alternative therapies of any kind. In fact they are often used as a last resort by many people who have exhausted other medical options, and are sometimes effective where more modern practices have failed. To compare the misguided folks who ONLY pursue alternative medicine and throw out the modern...it's just as foolish and arrogant I think as to pursue only modern and throw out everything traditional.
