    Alternative meds do work....for some....depending....a good friend of mine has allergies....starts to sneeze, cough due to whatever.....he pops one Stinging Nettles and the symptoms are gone almost instantaneously. For others who try nettles there is no difference. Chondroitin/glucosamine for runners who have a partial meniscus tear AND cartilage for padding works. Another friend has been using c/g for 10 years with no side effects and running up to 30 miles a week. My point is alternative medicine is selective. It's not a slam/dunk where one size will fit all or even most. If you can find something to work for you, great; if not, there's always BigPharma with its own issues. Red yeast rice, for example, which is a natural form of statin drugs (details https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements-red-yeast-rice/art-20363074), is effective in reducing bad cholesterol. My cholesterol was reduced from 250 to 190, and has remained there for the past two years in spite of my fat laden diet. A year's supply, purchased in bulk, costs about $60. For pain in my joints I drank shilajit tea which is a mineral pitch resin (this research shows its usefulness https://purblack.com/moomiyo-extract-super-yogis/). MSM, a sulphur compound which helps with the healing and maintenance of connective tissue, resolved a 5 year long chronic lower back strain problem I had experienced for over 5 years, with no other intervention (at https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/msm-supplements you can check a full list of all benefits). Again, I'm not saying all these remedies will work foreveryone. Still, many of these findings are accurate, but also constitute "straw man arguments". No responsible alternative medicine practitioner would claim that milk thistle cures hepatitis. Milk thistle simply helps the liver regenerate. Big Pharma definitely has it's own issues, with a much higher rate of adverse reactions requiring emergency hospitalization. Then there's the crimininally insane use of anti-depressants and other psychtropic drugs.
