Says JM Mulet, author of ” Medicine without deception, ” that hope has a better market than consolation … a reflection that, although simple and predictable, remains a truth like a cathedral. A reality that we forget when what we have in front of our eyes is precisely that hope buenrollista that sells us the cure for all the ills of the world especially if we have a health problem. To my way of seeing this is the sentence that would best summarize the book, hope (that of the unwary) and market (that of the mercachifle) put in tune . I insist, nothing that we do not know but that it agrees to remember in scholarly plan when it is mentioned to Henri Poincaré:
Very in summary in this work you will be able to find everything that those who promote the use of false and fraudulent alternative-complementary-natural therapies to promote and make you bite are silent. For this they will disguise in many occasions of medicine, although, it has to be very clear, medicine only exists one: the one that works . You can bet that if the Bach flowers or aromatherapy had any indication of effectiveness or real utility (beyond making cash out of the rooms to the unwary) these therapies will be available the next day to users of public health in the ambulatory health centers or in specialized consultations. But it will be no.
