Working as a clerk in a natural health product store, I try to help people find the right remedy.
It is more often than not an herbal formula.
I hear a lot of non-science around me. Not that I would have anything to say against the power of the placebo effect for example.
But there's a lot of different beliefs out there...let me tell you!
I do believe the mind has tremendous convincing & healing abilities.
I do not believe everything I hear just because "a study" said so...or do I?
This british doctor's speech swept me off my feet:
more about the Cochrane non for profit organization
more about Goldacre's column in the Guardian
By the way, do you know a cookbook that would teach kids how to cook healthy food?
