Question by Skiddle: What are the objections to Natural/Alternative Medicine?
I need at least 12 for the research paper I am writing and I’m stuck.

Best answer:

Answer by Mr E
one is the fact the it often takes longer to effect the patient’s desired symptom results than using drugs. some people, despite the fact that you explain that the natural healing process takes time, falsely conclude that if they don’t feel better immediately that it doesn’t work, and they give up.

    Great Guide to PhD life!, November 3, 2007

    At first I’d like to say that there are many references out there, online, that one can find about how to excel the PhD years and beyond. However, the author compile it in a very good, organized way, that practically explain how to tackle the common situations during the PhD years.
    It’s a small, practical book, that you can bring anywhere in your pocket, I recommend this book to all PhD students, alumni, and everyone who is thinking about doing a PhD.

    Jeroen (Utrecht, Netherlands) –

    I’m currently in my third year as PhD student, and I came across a news item annoucing the book. I thought it would be a great source of external advice, besides the advice I get from my own advisors. And when I began reading the book, I knew I had struck gold: The style of the book makes it a pleasure to read, and the tons of advice in the book range from very practical to almost psychological.

    There are chapters in the book that give tips on preparing for your first conference (you don’t have to go to *every* session, have fun!), prepare for meetings with your advisors, and how to steer those meetings to be productive for you as well.
    And finally there is a chapter that helps you make the choice of what to do after your PhD, and reminds you that you have to start looking long before it all ends (even though it may seem that it never does ;) ).

    Since reading it, I often look back into it, rereading tips. I’ve given this book to all other graduate students in my group, who have all thanked me for doing that.
