Here, you say that "
The other statement you see with all these less researched conditions is "there is no scientific evidence that supports the use of this treatment".... now, to me, and I have a strong scientific background, I often find this statement completely misleading. Most people confuse this statement with ..... such a treatment has failed clinical trials and offers no benefit vs. a placebo controlled group. While on occasion this is true (but usually not stated this way) in most cases, it's not true. Instead, the statement simply means, there has never been any controlled tested performed on this treatment. So an equally true statement can also be said, i.e. "there is no scientific evidence that demonstrates this treatment is not effective". So this is the other view of alternative remedies...similar to glass half empty, or half full, both are really true, neither can be disputed. However, again, one must apply common sense here.... the simple fact a potential remedy has no scientific testing, is not a license to kill yourself drinking poisoned Kool-aid. So again, common sense is mandatory... but the point is, not having any scientific testing, is not proof that given treatment will not be effective for you. If we waited for every alternative lupus treatments to be scientifically validated, well, we will all be long dead by such time.
