It reads like an add on the back page of a comic book. I am sorry his presentation puts me very ill at ease. If his Methods work then they should be presented to the appropriate medical bodies. You know these guys come a dime a dozen and just because he might get the Oprah 'seal of approval' or some such thing does not make him bonefide in my books.

Gee, none of that stuff bothered me. I'm skeptical too and I also want some good science to back things up - double blind, peer review, etc. But on the other hand, I also don't necessarily need to accept something as gospel that the already conservative medical community has accepted years ago - namely that alot of medications need weeks to (maybe)work while the suffering continues - when relief often comes during that time from remission (temporary or otherwise), not the drug itself.
Do I understand right - that even if he were proven scientifically, even if his educational credentials were fine and even if his Methods were being used by one of the top institutions in the country among others, one simply shouldn't trust the skills of a Dr. based on the style of website, the fact that he is a Dr. from California and that he has promoted his book in the media?
