I am glad that not all people who seek alternative treatments fall prey to stupid symbolic conflicts between the progressives and the fundamentalists, the "naturalists" and the "unnaturalists".
The "naturalists" seem to, like children, lack the capacity to understand what is symbolic speech and what is literal.
The "naturalist" hears on TV that there is an obesity epidemic. Suddenly the reporter says that fat and sugar is the culprit.
The unaware "naturalist" then wages an online Jihad against fat and sugar, proclaiming these things to be the enemies of good health. Of course, the "naturalist" doesn't realize that you need fat and sugar to stay alive, and be in good health.
The "naturalist" doesn't realize that the anti-fat and anti-sugar movement is merely symbolic to combat an obesity epidemic, because people are consuming TOO MUCH fat and sugar for their own good. It's like in times of war, where nationalistic rhetoric is increased to mobilize people for defending the country.
But you can't make them understand, it's sadly something with the brain being too small, too few neurons or synapses or something.
