I tend to think natural cures ARE effective in many cases, don't get me wrong. But you don't need to buy supplements. People need to eat right and exercise. Those things are free.
And the list of deadly supplements is long - fen-fen, ephedra, BD, steroids, etc. Plus, since they are unregulated the quality control varies from excellent to extremely poor. I want nothing to do with them.
Oh I guess I should of noted I run a bunch of natural health stores. We don't sell any of that crap. We only do natural herbs, and things like that.
