These treatments cost money that I could spend on evidence-based medicine that is supported by a strong medical consensus.

I'm not criticizing you though. I'm unconvinced that complimentary and alternative medicine is worthwhile. I am convinced that your concern is sincere and thoughtful. I don't think you're a fool for suggesting something that I think is bogus.

My ex-girlfriend believed in ghosts, auras, tarot cards, and alternative medicine. We would have this conversation all the time: I would wince. She would recommend a chiropractor. I would say no. She would ask why. I would tell her that I think they're quacks. She would try to convince me otherwise with anectdotes about friends who benefited from chiropractic. This would go on for nearly an hour and by the end of the conversation, she would imply that I think she's an idiot. I learned not to show my pain around her so she wouldn't resent me. When someone suggests chiropractic, it takes me right back to that conversation. I acknowledge that my feelings on this subject are probably more complicated than they should be.
