$1.3 billion spent on homeopathic medicines in 2017, but they do not work beyond placebo effect.

Americans spent $42 billion in 2017 on dietary supplements.

29% of Americans using alternative medicines did so on a doctor’s advice.

Cancer patients on alternative therapies were twice as likely to die.

Berries act as anti-inflammatories. Meditation, Tai chi, and yoga all help back pain, chronic pain, and fibromyalgia.

Mindfulness meditation reduces stress, and stress-related hormone levels.

Melatonin helps sleep.

Glucosamine and chondroitin are no better than placebo in 1,625 people studied in 2015.

Kava can cause liver damage and it is banned in many nations.

Yogurt, sauerkraut, and tempeh are best for your microbiome.

Saw palmetto does not work.

Tai chi may ease dementia, chronic pain, depression, arthritis, and Parkinson’s!

Tea lowers risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Zinc (80-90 mg/day) within 24 hrs of first symptom reduces duration and severity of a cold. (Zinc and vitamin C at first sign just helped me beat a cold in 3 days!)
