The first link, is something rather negative, or, is it positive? A trend that is not so great in medicine today. However, although this is a negative, in Chinese medicine, we say that every extremem turns ot its opposite. This is true in disease and in life. Given this, I believe, that this negative trend is why althernative emdicines of all kinds are becoming more prevalent. People want answers to their problems, they want healing, and they wont stand for anything less. The sad part is that we don't all have equal access due to the fact that we are not all on an equal financial footing.
