    I also agree, my grandmother, cousin and now my mother currently under chemo treatment is proof the stuff does do something for you. Yah, its not the nicest stuff around but if its going to give them another chance at life why not?

    I don't take kindly the comment as chemo patients are "lab rats" either. Thats plain ignorance and rude. I don't consider my own mother to be a lab rat.

    Hes got my respect


    Martial arts were originally developed in eastern culture, because fighting happened allot. It was intended for hand to hand combat when it was needed. And has increasingly been taught how to defend your self at close range gun point if needed, with hand guns becoming more common over the years, or any weapon for that matter.

    Though i think i just reiterated this whole topic.

    agreed..............know way to many ppl still walking around due to chemo..........the crap is poison but thats the point.........your just looking for it to kill the cancer faster than you. if i had the choice between teas and chemo for the most part ill take chemo........if my chances are slim to none, would rather live whats left of my life as comfortable as i can instead of sick as a dog on chemo. but thats a personal choice, will never knock a persons choice to pull out all the stops. it is after all their life to make the choice about.

    Actually mates martial arts started due to the greeks believe it or not. Mostly Alexander the Great and his army. They traveled east towards India and China. They met with the locals and taught them pankration (which consisted of wrestling, kixkboxing, and something else... correct me if you know). From there they broke off each country adapting its own.

    this convo has taken multiple topics since i read it... take forever for me to replyto them all but ill try anyway

    My mom had some of the best doctors in the country and when i suggested tai chi they never laughed. they said it would b good FOR HER BODY AND MIND! And as to tai chi not helping to fight any other disease it does. Better blood flow helps the body fight off disease no? Do you think laughter is useless? why do you think it is people feel better when theyve had a good laugh after being sad? endorphin are sent, blood flow, capillaries relax, muscles do the same. does that sound useless to you? ok, ill grant you parts of certain animals are useless. shark cartilage, apricot seeds are both natural ways to fight cancer. maybe thats a better way to have put it, not cure. chiropractice also helps colds, fights certain other bodily alments. wheres the drugs in that? All im saying is do more research before you make comments.

    You don't say! So does any kind of exercise.


    Any respectable doctor would laugh in your face if you asked them if tai chi would help fight cancer, or any other disease for that matter. Eastern doctors don't count, because they don't know anything. I'm not being mean, I'm being serious. They don't know jack compared to western doctors. If anyone is remaining in the dark, its you. Thinking that tea and sucking on random roots on the 3rd Sunday of the month or whathaveyou is going to cure something is stupid. I've been around medicine my entire life...my dad is a doctor! But nooooo, I couldn't possibly know anything about medicine. As Clint said, if homeopathic treatments really worked, everyone would be using them. There wouldn't even be a need for pharmaceutical companies or any of that. I mean, why go to a doctor who trained for a minium of 6 years, and who can more than likely cure whatever you're suffering from, when you could go to some self proclaimed "mystic" old Asian guy, who will give you some tiger *******? This isn't some Hollywood fairy tale world, it's reality, and eastern treatments are for the most part, about as effective as a steaming pile of feces.

    Oh, and I insult lots of people's beliefs. If I think something is idiotic, I'll be the first to let someone know. You're basically shrugging off hundreds of years of medical knowledge in order to willingly live in the stone age. Do I need to continue tearing this hocus pocus nonsense apart, or are you done?
