Update I revisited this fascinating discussion. Here's an update. My sister got a hysterectomy and is much much happier. I should revisit this conversation with her and see what she says.

Meanwhile, her acupuncturist was arrested, released, re-arrested, and eventually had to go underground. The community was very upset. kleinbl00

Well Wesley Snipes' acting ability was not affected by his choice to not pay taxes! ;-)

I have a real hard time with homeopathy. So does my wife. If you have the vaguest basis in science homeopathy is impossible to take at a basic level. BUT when my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law suddenly had serious issues with digestion and heartburn my wife advocated they talk to a homeopath before having their gallbladders removed.

My mother-in-law did not. She has no gallbladder now and is mostly doing fine. My sister-in-law did. She still has her gallbladder and can't even remember a time when she had digestive issues. Both of them are better. Both of them saw doctors who advocated gallbladder removal. One of them did and the other saw someone who gave them special magic sugar pills carefully crafted just for them.

I lost 40lbs in 2010 through diet, exercise, stress reduction and... a custom-compounded homeopathic dose. Fuckin' pisses me off.
