"Energy Medicine Pain Relief Patches Are Laughable Quackery."

Post by bindeweede »

Harriet Hall writes about the numerous ads for patches that can be applied to the skin to relieve pain. The descriptions are energy medicine nonsense. Imaginative and entertaining, but not to be believed.
It would be a waste of time to critique each of these claims. You can judge for yourselves. You may laugh. You may scream. But if you have any knowledge of science, you will see that this pseudoscientific language is gibberish. It will raise all sorts of questions. Questions that the sellers of these patches have no answers for. In his article, David Gorski called for a randomized controlled trial of the Luminas patch versus an identical patch that wasn’t infused with the magic electrony goodness of the Luminas patch. The sellers know very well what such a trial would show, so they’re not about to do one.
