LOL Anthroposophy!

Orac has a nice post explaining that homeopathy is a big part of the education naturopaths get at their wacky schools.

Some naturopaths also study anthroposophy, as do some real doctors, particularly those at the University of Michigan Medical School.

What's anthroposophy, you ask? Well in short: anthroposophy = homeopathy + ghosts.

Obviously adding ghosts to homeopathy does not dilute the stupid in any measurable way.

How can a reputable medical school like U Michigan suddenly go full-on moonbat? Well, in my clinical experience, rich wankers are usually involved. People like Oprah, Mercola, Chopra, Huffington, and Prince Charles want to make the world a better place. The "transformation of medicine" is their wedge strategy.  By getting faith healing into science they hope to guide the rest of us toward better spiritual practice. It's kind of like when you were a kid and that creepy old guy made touching the no-no place seem good instead of bad.  All it took was a little candy and repetition.

Hey you, smile! Billionaires do not like a negative attitude. Negativity can get you fired; just ask Orac.

I copypasta'd a handy membership list from the Physician's Association for Anthroposophic Medicine and Self-Inflicted Head Injury, to get the positivity and up-toned laughing started:

  1. The email posted for Dr. Landman-Reiner does not appear to be working. Thank you,

  2. I attack the source of the problem which will effectively correct the biomechanics decreasing the pain. Remember that pain tells us there is something wrong but the location of pain is generally not the location of the problem. Houston Spinal Pain Center

  3. If you don't know how or why this stuff works you could just say so.

  4. LOL! I'm amazed at your narrowmindedness. Clearly you speak from a place of profound bias and ignorance of your subject. Clearly you've never experienced Anthroposophical Medicine. OMG! Well, some folks just are ignorant, aren't they? -Ignorant in the sense of not knowing anything, in the sense of being uninformed. Perhaps some day you will learn more about your subject matter, perhaps not. But did it ever occur to you that anyone practicing Anthropososphical Medicine has gone well above and beyond other MDs in their training and that there might be a very important and excellent reason for this?

  5. Where do "ghosts" come into play in anthroposophy, The Tufted Titmouse?
