Shakespeare was Irish! by Brian Nugent (Paperback) - Lulu


This man, a friend of mine actually though we have never met but spoke, has written this book. I have not read it but read 2 of his other books that I greatly enjoyed. I am not interested overly in Shakespeare. He is a member here but posts very rarely
That guy wrote an extremely interesting about the social control tactics of the ruling elite in the ROI called "Orwellian Ireland" that is definitely worth a read.

The Kirov series. (John Schettler). Sci-Fi/Time Travel/Alt History mainly focusing on WW2. It is, at present, a 36 book series so it may take some time to read :)

no no no heraclitus - ask any homeopath what he would do if his child was in a car crash... he would bring them to the hospital. u are not looking at this the right way. surgery is surgery. its job is to treat traumatised bodies with surgery. surgery has been practiced for millenia. and believe it or not hera - there are some surgeons and doctors and shrinks who not only recommend acupuncture/naturopathy/homeopathy/herbs for some of their patients to speed up their recovery and help with emotional issues - they also use them themselves. this is not a surgery vs alternative medicine debate - not to me. i have NO PROBLEMS with surgeons - i do however have huge issues with my local gp stuffing people with toxic 'medicine'. also the BBC are always going to rubbish non corporate healing modalities - and i hate that little gooterhead in that duo - the freaky one.

Certain medications are over prescribed; I don't dispute this.
But this doesn't get 'alternative medicine' practitioners off the hook from the accusations commonly leveled against them.

IMO, non pharmaceutical treatments should be explored first.
The body's natural ability to heal itself should be the first port of call.
To this end, the placebo effect should be harnessed as much as possible.
Only in instances where this isn't sufficient alone should pharmaceutical drugs be resorted to.

As for homeopathy, just give people an honest placebo instead.
