Fairy Tale Science and Placebo Medicine - Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)

http://facebook.com/ScienceReason ... Harriet Hall with her talk "Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM): Fairy Tale Science and Placebo Medicine", World Skeptics Congress 2012 in Berlin. Introduction by Willem Betz. --- More videos of the World Skeptics Congress will be uploaded to the following channels: • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/RationalHumanism • http://www.youtube.com/WissensMagazin Please don't forget to subscribe! Playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL602E2CD13B5D203C --- Harriet Hall, MD, aka "The SkepDoc," is a retired family physician and former Air Force flight surgeon who writes prolifically about science, critical thinking, alternative medicine, and quackery. She is a CSI fellow, a contributing editor to both Skeptic and Skeptical Inquirer magazines, an editor of the Science-Based Medicine blog, an adviser to the Quackwatch website, a founding fellow of the Institute for Science in Medicine, and is on the editorial review board of the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database. --- Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an artificial category covering a wide variety of treatments that are dubious, untested, or inadequately tested. Medicine that has been proven to work is just "medicine" -- not CAM. Science is the only reliable way to find out if a treatment really works, and proponents of CAM have recognized the need for scientific studies to support their claims. Unfortunately, good science requires more than just getting positive results from a controlled study. When therapies based on fantasy are studied with the tools of science, it produces confusing noise. Studying how much money the Tooth Fairy leaves under the pillow doesn't prove she exists. Pragmatic studies give an unfair advantage to treatments that have no specific effects but are dressed up like Cinderella with non-specific effects. Energy medicine modalities like Therapeutic Touch are a bit like the Emperor's New Clothes: they have impressed adults with apparently supporting studies; but a 9 year old child, Emily Rosa, pointed out their nakedness with a simple experiment showing that practitioners were deceiving themselves. Meta-analyses and systematic reviews are often flawed, especially when applied to improbable modalities. When science shows that a CAM treatment works no better than placebo, some CAM advocates accept the results but argue that we should use the treatment anyway, because placebos make patients feel better. This constitutes a double standard, because we wouldn't accept that argument for prescription drugs. Prescribing placebos is unethical, and placebo use can lead to harm in several different ways. There is only one science, and it must be rigorously applied to determine the effectiveness and safety of any treatment, whether alternative or mainstream. Recent emphasis on evidence-based medicine (EBM) is encouraging, but in practice EBM tends not to give enough consideration to basic science and prior probability. We need truly science-based medicine to determine whether CAM treatments really work. --- World Skeptics Congress: Promoting Science and Critical Thinking in a World of Uncertainty. Why do people turn to pseudoscience for help? What makes alternative medicine so attractive - and how can we find out what really works? Why is it so difficult for us to deal with risk and uncertainty in a rational way? Can we teach children to think critically and scientifically? And how can academic disciplines like biology or psychology protect themselves from pseudoscientific contamination? The 6th World Skeptics Congress in Berlin was an intellectually stimulating three-day event dealing with paranormal and supernatural claims, fringe science issues, and scams. Major topics at this event were science and pseudoscience in education, in particular anti-evolution claims and origin myths, and the problems of risk and benefit assessment, especially in alternative medicine. Gerd Antes, Wim Betz, Johan Braeckman, Edzard Ernst, Chris French, Luigi Garlaschelli, Harriet Hall, Ray Hyman, Chris Mooney, Simon Perry, Massimo Polidoro, James Randi, Gita Sahgal, Eugenie Scott, Simon Singh, Samantha Stein, Kylie Sturgess, Rebecca Watson and Tomasz Witkowski are just some of the world-renowned presenters who took part, taking apart the claims and conspiracies of the modern world. • http://www.worldskeptics.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/worldskepticscongress2012 • http://www.gwup.org/ • http://www.facebook.com/gwup.org --- Tags: complementary alternative placebo medicine cam fairy tale science treatments studies harriet hall homeopathy pseudoscience education skeptical rational critical thinking skepticism world skeptics congress 2012 berlin .

Complementary and Alternative Medicine - What You Need To Know
 
02:03
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term for medical products and practices that are not part of standard care. Standard care is what medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy, and allied health professionals, such as nurses and physical therapists, practice. Complementary medicine is used together with standard medical care. An example is using acupuncture to help with side effects of cancer treatment. Alternative medicine is used in place of standard medical care. An example is treating heart disease with chelation therapy (which seeks to remove excess metals from the blood) instead of using a standard approach. The claims that CAM treatment providers make can sound promising. However, researchers do not know how safe many CAM treatments are or how well they work. Studies are underway to determine the safety and usefulness of many CAM practices. To minimize the health risks of a CAM treatment Discuss it with your doctor. It might have side effects or interact with other medicines Find out what the research says about it Choose CAM practitioners carefully Tell all of your doctors and practitioners which CAM and standard treatments you use NIH: National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Prince Charles 'sells snake oil' – Edzard Ernst on alternative medicine 'dangerous' to NHS
 
12:17
Watch the full episode here: http://bit.ly/GU178 Edzard Ernst, expert on evidence based analysis of alternative medicine and author of ‘A Scientist in Wonderland’, talks to Going Underground host Afshin Rattansi about the efficacies of such treatments, and whether recent government suggestions that they should be integrated into the NHS are such a good idea. He gave up a professorship in Vienna to move to Britain to study the subject because alternative medicine is a 'paradise for any researcher' because there are so many unanswered questions. He saw miraculous cures effected by homeopathy such as people getting out of wheelchairs, and says you have to question if it is down to homeopathy or to the placebo effect. The challenge with studying this is creating a placebo alternative to the real thing, and his solutions included actors portraying psychic healing and needles that did not pierce the skin for acupuncture. His study showed actors were actually better than healers at stopping pain, but many said he should not publish that because it would deprive pain sufferers of the placebo effect they gain from the treatment. He argues 'you can only make progress in medicine if you tell the truth,' saying that whilst the placebo effect may alleviate suffering, it does not save lives. He says it is a 'fallacy' that because something has been around for centuries it must work, citing bloodletting as an example that killed millions. He says that chiropractic treatment is 'just as wacky' as homeopathy, and the proof it works just as poor. He says the risks come from people genuinely using it as an alternative to serious conditions like cancer, where alternative medicine goes from being harmless to 'life-threatening.' In the present Ebola outbreak a team of homeopaths went to Liberia to cure the outbreak, and he says if they are 'so deluded' to think they can achieve that, 'one wonders what they do to their patients in everyday practice.' He describes David Treddinick, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare and an advocate for alternative medicine including homeopathy and astrology, as 'really dangerous' and on a mission to integrate homeopathy and other treatments into the NHS. He had a complaint lodged with his vice-chancellor by Prince Charles' private secretary, alleging he broke confidence on a document about the economical effects of integrating alternative medicine in the NHS by critiquing it as 'irresponsibly misguided.' He says the Prince is a 'snake oil salesman' for selling Duchy Originals Detox Tincture, and believes that it is 'crazily naïve' to believe that detox products work, describing them as 'bogus... also dangerous' as it leads to people thinking they can overindulge, take the tincture, and everything will be fine, which is not true.

He debates to what extent massage therapy and aromatherapy are examples of CAM. He reveals whether he likes to refer to CAM as (S)CAM, and how helpful such an acronym is. He explores to what extent traditional medicine and herbal medicine are science-based, resulting in aspirin, digitalis, and various chemotherapy drugs, and why they should not properly be considered CAM. He describes the health freedom movement, and what social criticism fuels it. He talks about the ways that adopting CAM approaches harm patients, including leading to patents to forgo other, more effective treatments; paternalistic deception of the patient through knowing use of placebo. He explores the moral values that motivate skeptical activism. And he talks about why more medical doctors are not skeptic activists.

Alternative Medicine is Quackery
 
01:01:05
Filmed in India during the Debating Matters India finals, this gripping debate never fails to engage. Practitioners of modern medicine demystify and challenge alternative medicine in defence of scientific rigour, testing and the reproducibility of treatments. Advocates of alternative medicine claim a holistic approach which is person specific that can not be validated using established methods. The debate gets heated as professor Simon Wessely points out that he is a practitioner of modern medicine by day but like many parents resorts to homeopathy when he goes home. When one of his children comes home with a bruised knee from the playground he kisses it better, but he says, "this is not medicine."

Behind the dubious medical claims of Dr. Mehmet Oz and Deepak Chopra is a decades-long strategy to promote alternative medicine to the American public. Twenty-three years ago, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) began to investigate a wide variety of unconventional medical practices from around the world. Five-and-a-half billion dollars later, the NIH's funding of complementary and integrative care has found no cures for disease. But it has succeeded in bringing every kind of quackery — from faith healing to homeopathy — out of the shadows and into the heart of the American medical establishment.

Season 2 Episode 4 Alternative Medicine
 
57:08
In this week's episode, Lebaron and Dave take on the big business that is Alternative Medicine. This is an umbrella term used to describe field and schools of thought that are outside the purview of Western Medicine. Some examples of alternative medicines include, but are not limited to, Yoga, Meditation, Chinese Medicine, Herbs and Supplements, Chiropractic Medicine, Reiki, and many others. In our discussion, we define what a Placebo is, what placebo effect is, and why a double blind study is used to test the efficacy of treatments. We give detailed explanations of what Complementary medicine and Alternative Medicine are in the context of how these alternative medicines should be practiced. We give very scientific analyses of many types of alternative medicines. The financial aspects of peddling alternative medicines is also reviewed in light of the claims that Big Pharma are out for only profits, and these alternative medicines are truly pure of any greed or malfeasance. Please, submit all questions in the comments and we will address them in next week's episode!

Reiki Master ASMR
 
34:01
Doctor Andrew Michaels wants to help you with Remote Healing through Reiki hand movements and whispering. Personal Attention sleep aid by request. Reiki (霊気) (/ˈreɪkiː/) is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Since originating in Japan, Reiki has been adapted into varying cultural traditions across the world. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is allegedly transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. Reiki's teachings and adherents claim that qi is physiological and can be manipulated to treat a disease or condition. The existence of qi has not been established by medical research. Therefore, Reiki is a pseudoscientific theory based on metaphysical concepts. The existence of the proposed mechanism for Reiki – qi or "life force" energy – has not been established. Most research on Reiki is poorly designed and prone to bias. There is no reliable empirical evidence that Reiki is helpful for treating any medical condition, although some physicians have said it might help promote general well-being. In 2011, William T. Jarvis of The National Council Against Health Fraud stated that there "is no evidence that clinical Reiki's effects are due to anything other than suggestion" or the placebo effect.

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a term used for an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia. ASMR signifies the subjective experience of "low-grade euphoria" characterised by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin". It is most commonly triggered by specific acoustic, visual and digital media stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attentional control.
