Auricular Medicine: Quackery on Steroids

It sounds like you're getting a double-dose of quackery from a chiropractor who ought to know better. Not only is homeopathy without a shred of scientific merit (see our blog index for numerous articles on homeopathy) but auricular medicine is even wackier.

Judging by the number of weight loss, muscle building and strength products being sold online, I guess it’s safe to say that a lot of men and women are serious about getting in shape. Working out will help, but as I’m sure you already know that working out isn’t enough as supplements are equally necessary. And that is what brings us to this amazing company. There are a lot of people who swear by the products this company sells, but others aren’t sure and wonder if it’s real or just a scam. So what is it, really? We’ve done some research (painstaking reviews on crazy bulk brand) and I can assure you that their products are legal, safe and that they work. Part of the confusion lies with word/term steroids, so I’ll clear that up first, then we’ll look at what the website has to offer. You check this weblink for Crazy Bulk Supplements Store.

Anabolic Steroids are the most popular name in the body building world. With its most positive and immediate effects of reduction in weight with in a short period has made it known world wide. This name will not fade with the passage of time as the other products which came in the market and went away early because of its fewer effects. Anabolic Steroids is a best product whose consumption does not leave its side effects for a longer time and fades away when you minimise its dose or stop its use. People have gone crazy for this product because who so ever has utilised Anabolic Steroids is so much satisfied with its immediate results and effects in weight loss that he disclosed its miraculous results to all his near and dear ones and as such the chain went on increasing and similarly the popularity of Anabolic Steroids went up. You can check out this site for the details about anabolic steroids.

The genuineness of Anabolic Steroids lies in its immediate results. With the intake of doze of this drug the temperature of the body is slightly enhanced. This shows that that steroid has started its action. With in short time of its consumption its start functioning in breaking the fat cells in the body and the intake of pills of an original drug work for 24 hours either you are working or are in rest or also even you are sleeping. It is suggested that the steroids should be taken in the morning as it works more effectively if taken in the morning as it starts action rapidly in changing the fats into fat acid and as such increases the metabolism in the body. Some other supplements do not shows its immediate action/ results but show results after reaching at certain stage. All the legal steroids are having side effects, but these bad effects starts decreasing or even are faded in full when the intake of drug is minimized or even stopped after the achievement of required goal. But in the case of in genuine drugs these are not showing any rapid action as well their side effects continue even after you have stopped the consumption of drug. More over the use of other drugs take much longer time to show its results and people have to spend much more money and even not get the required results.

For those of you who have never heard of it, auricular medicine is also known as "ear acupuncture" and involves inserting acupuncture needles into certain spots in a person's ear which supposedly correspond to certain parts of the body. But here's where it gets really weird.

This therapy is widely believed to be an ancient Chinese remedy but that's not even close to the truth. It was actually invented by a French homeopath, Dr. Paul Nogier, in 1951 when a patient came to him and claimed he was relieved of sciatica pain by a cauterization of the ear performed by a quack in Marseille, France.

Nogier suddenly had a remarkable "insight" that the ear was actually a homonculus (a little man) in the form of a fetus. Therefore, if one stuck a pin in the a certain area on the "little man" in the ear, it would heal the corresponding part of the body. (I'm not making this up - click here for an article containing plenty of citations, which document the bizarre history of this treatment.)

Personally, I would not trust my health to anyone who uses such untested and downright ludicrous methods of "medicine" to diagnose an illness, then treat it with homeopathic drugs that have long been proven to be nothing more than plain water (which homeopaths believe have a "memory" of anything that ever touched it). If I were you, I'd find a real doctor and get on with some real healing.
