Alternative medicine or treatment?
Alternative medicine has always caused a lot of ink to flow and has attracted more than one patient to its web. Alternative medicine or treatment is a debate, which one could almost call life or death when it comes to serious diseases such as cancer, HIV, etc.
To understand, in alternative medicine there is no question of drugs or standard treatments. We are talking about medicinal plants, powder or magic drops, miracle diets, concoctions of natural supplements anti ... all diseases.

"He was healing himself with natural products, and he had several thousand of dollars’ worth at home. Recently, he did a kind of purge to disinfect his body of all the medications he had taken. He had diarrhea for weeks. When I last saw him a few days ago, he was skeletal," added Marie-Claude Lachance.
Bernard Lachance became known in 2009 by singing on Oprah Winfrey's show. [...]”
Devastating public outings
But his public outings, a video in the form of an "open letter" to his doctor, Dr. Réjean Thomas and his appearance on Denis Lévesque's show a few weeks later (never broadcast on the air, but Mr. Lachance himself spread it on the networks) had a devastating effect on patients, who abandoned their treatment or who said they were going to do it after hearing Bernard Lachance...
The reality is that...
It is your choice to be treated or not. You just have to know all the consequences, both positive and negative. You MUST talk about it with your urologist, your entourage, your peers, in order to make the right decision.
