i do believe herbal medecine can help with general wellbeing,herbs were used long before modern medecine.
i eat organic food,fresh herbs and use aromatherapy oils only to try to increase my wellbeing and not as a cure.
my own experience with chinese medecine was that my son has eczema.
when he was younger it was really bad,his skin would split and weep.
we tried all kinds of creams,then out of desperation i went to a chinese medecine shop that had posters in the window promising to cure all kinds of things uncluding eczema.
i paid £160/approx $320 for 2weeks treatment of herbs i had to boil up 3 times a day.
i had to wash him down with it and he had to drink some,they stink.
they did not work,i went back and they told me.............it is his diet!...........i said i know that its the dairy products that can effect eczema and we had eliminated all that from his diet.
if chinese medecine can not cure eczema then NOWAY can they claim to cure als,ms or anything else.
take good care.
