I'm a board-certified anatomic and clinical pathologist and operator of the largest one-person medical information site on the web.
As a pathologist, it's my job among others to examine tissue, tell what's the matter, and predict the behavior of the disease and response to therapy.
Like most other pathologists, I'm extremely successful at this. Like most other pathologists, I take a lot of pride in this. Call us arrogant if you like. I am an honest physician who engages in public debates.
When I catch somebody deliberately deceiving the public, they never defend their cases on the facts, but almost always call me "arrogant" or "elitist" and claim I am secretly in the pay of the wicked pharmaceutical companies.

This site aims to let the public know what empirical evidence is available for various alternative remedies, especially studies published in refereed journals.
This will enable people who must make decisions to rely on more than anecdotes and advertising. This site will always be under intensive construction.

Here's the ranking system that this site will use: I can see why somebody might have thought of this. But if this actually works better than a placebo and a little human kindness, we are all going to have to make some major readjustments in how we think about health and disease. Don't spend too much money, or get your hopes up.
