Retrospective analysis of evidence base for tests used in diagnosis and monitoring of disease in respiratory medicine
I bring this article to your attention not to chastise, but to illuminate the fact that mainstream medicine has no right casting stones at “alternative” medicine (aspects of which, incidently, have been around for hundreds or thousands of years) and the lack of research. As far as I’m concerned, if an intervention has some basic research, makes sense from the viewpoint of physiology and has high level of safety then it is worth a trial in appropriate cases.
