    Ha, this is excellent.

    I am emerging from twelve years on the fringe of “naturopathic” and “holistic” thinking/living.  This cartoon motivated me to look up some commentary on naturopathy vs medicine.

    Just as when I didn’t “get” Christianity and its claims, so go my doubts about reiki, homeopathy, meditation being a “gateway” to spiritual realms, etc.

    I still love how I feel after a session of yoga poses; the chiropractor is the only one who can realign my neck when I’ve slept wrong; a massage (now matter how minor) is a guaranteed mood-altering act.

    However, I’m finally finding my inner scientist thanks to Carl Sagan, Michael Shermer, and sites like this.

  • Chiropractic is considered to be ineffectual for relieving anything other than lower back pain and can be outright dangerous when they “work” on your neck. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiropractic#Risk-benefit
    Could always try an osteopath (if you’re in America). I’ve found them to be more reliable and in the US their title (DO-doctor of osteopathy) is equivalent to an MD. Don’t bother with the cranial manipulation if you go to one though. Cranial manipulation is just woo and although it is relaxing, it does not actually do anything.

    Yes definitely think a bit more about having your neck adjusted. I know it feels great, but I believe it can lead to a stroke, as the wrenching action can cause tiny tears in the inner lumen of your carotids allowing blood clots to form.
