Have you read the whole book? In it Sylvie states that it was researched in France, and there was more research done at Columbia University in NYC (that is where I am in the book). Most of the research was written in French, which I don't speak, so it would have to be translated for me to understand.briellejee wrote: ↑04 Jan 2019, 08:17Same, that is why statistics and more research is important before claiming that it is effective. In a way, I also take this with a grain of salt, as you cleverly put it, because sometimes the claims are not effective to all people but they still promote it in general. We need specifics and a guarantee that it will have an effect on each individual; otherwise, it just gives false hope. I understand where you are coming from.
As to your statement that not all treatments are good for everyone, that is true. No one medical treatment works the same way on everyone. This includes cold remedies, vaccinations, chemotherapy, herbal supplements and anything else out there. There are never any guarantees in medicine, which is her point in the beginning of the book.
Chemotherapy can kill you before your cancer does, but the doctor that gives it to you will never be charged with malpractice because it is the "Standard of Care". I know I will stay away from that if ever the case arises. I would rather go with "unproven" and live a little longer.
