Be Wary of Unsupported Therapeutic Claims Alternative Approach
by: Bruce Brightman - LifeSource Vitamins
I am a great supporter of nontraditional medicine. It is an area of
unbridled imagination and discovery where, I believe, simple cures for
serious diseases will be found. However, there is also a dark side to
nontraditional medicine: Claims of therapeutic benefit based on little or
no real data.
A few weeks ago one on my clients mentioned her experiences with ozone, an
alternative therapy that has been around for more than 100 years. Although
it's promoted as a treatment for diseases such as cancer, AIDS and even to
slow the aging process, the medical evidence is seriously lacking.
Ozone is basically another form of oxygen. Oxygen is formed when two atoms
of oxygen combine to form the oxygen molecule, O2. It is vital to life on
this planet. Ozone is formed when three oxygen atoms combine, producing
ozone, O3. Ozone is often produced in large amounts during summer
thunderstorms as well as being plentiful in the upper atmosphere, where it
protects us from ultraviolet radiation.
More than 100 years ago, we discovered how to make ozone in the lab and
began using it as a medical therapy. At that time, antibiotics and modern
prescription drugs did not exist. Ozone was discovered to be toxic to
bacteria and to enhance wound healing. As a result, it was used
successfully to treat many illnesses, including tuberculosis, ear
infections and especially dental infections. Even though there appears to
be real benefit to the dental application of ozone therapy, quality
research continues to be seriously lacking.
Another of our clients told me she went to a physician who told her ozone
therapy could help prevent the metastasis of her breast cancer. She said
she spent $7,000 over two months taking ozone therapy. Unfortunately, she
still had breast cancer.
I often tell my clients that, in nontraditional medicine, the claims of
extraordinary benefit may be unsubstantiated. These claims of health
benefits are often based upon individual testimonials. Although there is
nothing wrong with a truthful testimonial, there is a world of difference
between health claims based on testimonials and health claims based on
I would love to say that everyone in nontraditional medicine is honest and
that all claims of benefit are solidly based on good research...but it
would not be true. Chronic pain and suffering results in desperation and
desperation opens the door for dishonesty. The key is quality research. If
something works, we should know. If something does not work, we should know
that, too. Remember, there is no such thing as a miracle pill! God is the
