The whole premise of this quackery has saved my life. Heel Traumeel is one of the best products in any category I've used. Who posted this crap? This theory is much older and universal than anything we are implementing here.

We are a nation or chronically diseased people. A lot of this comes from the fact that our specialist nature doesn't see one organ system as related to another-which is why so many of our drugs cause harmful side effects-this is not medicine.

The entire thing is completely rational.

Germans are a bit rational-and tend to know something of science.

What is a "facile Wiki answer" and how can I go about "taking" one? Blue Talk 06:24, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
Traumeel of course has no scientific backing to support the claims of efficacy Heel makes. Your response here also has no evidence beyond vague anecdotes, and a range of fallacies, half truths and lies. The US is not a nation of chronically diseased people, if you look at across the board health statistics countries embracing scientific and proven medicine are much healthier and live much longer than countries that do not have access to such services. Most of the countries of plenty of access to "holistic medicine" and alternative treatments. If it was science based medicine and medications that were making us sick you would expect them to be the ones in better shape.
Your little German interjection as pretty entertaining though. And yes I think we would all agree that people should do research before they pursue any form of quack medical treatment. I am glad we can agree on that at least. Tmtoulouse (talk) 06:26, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

No scientific backing?[edit]

What do you call these studies posted on PUB MED, the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health?
