For every drug that benefits a patient, there is a natural substance that can achieve the same effect.

There can never be any serious health reform until Orthomolecular medicine is accepted as a mainstream way of managing the healthcare of Americans. Many of the critics of Orthomolecular medicine say this form of therapeutic nutrition is based on anecdotal cases. Just like the late Abram Hoffer PhD, MD has stated numerous times “there is no evidence that anecdotal information is any less accurate then clinical information.”
These same critics of Orthomolecular medicine always fail to acknowledge that The Office of Technology Assessment of the United States Congress estimated that fewer than 30% of the procedures currently used in conventional medicine have been rigorously tested. Karen Koffler MD an internal-medicine specialist is quoted as saying “the notion that everything allopathic medicine does is backed up by evidence is nonsense. We put patients on Heparin, a blood thinning medication, after a heart attack. No one, as far as I’ve found, has rigorously tested that, and we’ve been doing it forever.”
Anecdotal evidence is a basically uncontrolled clinical observation which provides a reason why a certain treatment protocol is successful or not. These uncontrolled clinical observations provide the impetus for the gathering of clinical data, and if done correctly will provide a scientific explanation why or why not a particular treatment is effective.
The vast majority of diseases should be managed in more affordable ways, based on Orthomolecular medicine which relies on optidoses (optimal doses) of vitamins which enhances the human body’s natural capacity for healing and uses inexpensive, low tech methods to manage most common diseases. The $65,000 question is why don’t the insurance companies endorse orthomolecular medicine as a means to lower healthcare spending? Just like Andrew Saul PhD has said many times “good health makes a lot of sense but it does not make a lot of dollars.”

It is safe to say in the USA that it is always about money. Although some things are classified. And as for the anecdotal argument, everything is anecdotal if you cannot confirm it for yourself. Nullus Verba do not take any ones word for it. Motto of the Royal Society and science. And if you cannot understand it do not believe it, and the simplest theory is most likely to be correct. It is difficult to find out about alternative health systems in the USA because publishers are afraid of being sued.
Here is something you can easily try yourself so it is not anecdotal. Have some vitamin E on hand. It is available over the counter in the USA. Next time you have a burn, cut or scratch, apply vitamin E directly to it. The pain will go away in minutes and it will heal in less than half the time. Science is about proving it to yourself.
When you can go out and see the universe, who wants to go look at a Russian submarine? (Melvin C. Riley, US Army Remote Viewer)
