The views expressed here are those of Mahes Visvalingam alone. She is just an open-minded, curiosity-driven independent researcher whose teaching portfolio included The Philosophy and Methodology of Science to postgraduates at the University of Hull. This site contains notes on her ad-hoc experimental use of natural remedies for treating her common ailments. She is not a certified health professional. She acknowledges that A little knowledge is a dangerous thing and that Curiosity killed the cat; it may well kill her.
I have provided links to other interesting sites. Please read widely before you decide to try a treatment. Much of the literature on the effectiveness of alternative therapies tend to be second-hand accounts. First-hand accounts (like mine) tend to be anecdotal and subjective and may be contradictory and confusing. This is inevitable given that people respond differently to treatments (see controversy). If you wish, you can publicise your comments and personal experiences through my web blog Messages for Mahes Visvalingam. Please see my notes on how to use this facility.
