Busting the quack busters

quackbuster

(Healingtalks) There are a few of sites on the Web that claim to unravel the “real dirt” of the holistic health movement. They include vicious attacks on the therapies that work the best. These are especially pounced upon for obvious reasons. They serve as significant competition to the pharmaceutical, surgical, and radiation industries. When I wrote to one of these sites asking who their corporate sponsors were, there was no response.

On such sites, the general tone is usually to categorize conventional approaches as the only successful ones based on “science”  and holistic alternatives as being baseless dogma created by individuals who do have foggy minds, harbor ideologies, treasure theories that contradict facts, and have never done or published real peer-reviewed research plus have no authentic credentials.

Psychological game of super-authority posturing

These sites are, in essence, superior-authority posturing that also demean others with arrogance. God forbid there should be an ounce of doubt or humility in making their declarations. Arrogance is a sign of a closed, left-brain-dominant mind.  The disseminating of mountains of misinformation is a craft that does harm. But what else is new!

The scary part is that alternative doctors who have groundbreaking ideas are being persecuted, delicensed and even arrested, as I learned recently about Dr. Robert O. Young who I shared the podium with a couple of years ago on the GMO issue. I don’t agree with all of his ideas, but many of them have validity and challenge the establishment.

Why we need raw-wisdom

It is left-brain dominant posturing that is fake and a right-brain approach that is authentic – why we need more raw-wisdom
