Great Question Lisa, there are a lot of funky “home remedies” or “old wives’ tales” that wastes people’s time, their money, and extends their suffering and can even lead to more complications. So, it is important to evaluate any home remedy carefully and see if they pass the “smell test.” There are some simple things you can check out to see if a so called “Home Remedy” is legitimate. We will go through those in a minute.
On the other hand, if you can secure a legitimate medical treatment for use at home that works for a high percentage of people, is developed by Doctors and backed by clinical trials; it will save you time, money, help you avoid risks and downtime. It can also more quickly stem the progression of a chronic condition before it gets more serious.
An effective home treatment can also relieve the burden on the medical system and allow Doctors and Clinics to focus on less easily treated conditions. A legitimate home treatment that is efficacious, is a significant benefit to all parties.
Generally, in medicine, we like to start treating a condition with the least invasive treatment that also has high efficacy with patients. Minimally invasive, means, it carries less risk, has minimal downtime and minimal potential for complications to the patient. For instance, it is much less invasive to identify a torn ligament with an MRI than doing exploratory surgery to identify that a ligament is torn. In the medical community, we always gravitate to less invasive procedures that are efficacious. It just makes better sense for everyone involved.
So, how do you know if a Home Treatment or Home Remedy is legit?
Here is a check list to help you evaluate any Home Remedy:
1- Who developed the treatment protocol? Was it a Doctor?
2- Is the treatment safe? Are there potential complications?
3- Who Provides the Remedy? A Medical Device Company?
4- Are there Clinical Studies to Back it up?
5- What do other patients say about the treatment’s success or failure?
6- Are there video’s available from real patients telling their experience in detail? Anybody can say quickly, “I love this product.” “It really works.” However, It is extremely hard to stage a detailed story lasting 5 to 10 minutes.
7- What is the Treatment’s Rating on Independent Sites from real people like: Facebook Reviews?
8- Is There a Money Back Guarantee?
9- Is the treatment reimbursed by Health Insurance?
10- Are there credible articles written about how and why it works?
11- Most times you can trust your gut feeling about credible evidence if you dig a little. It is hard to fake the details. Trust your gut after doing a little research.
Now to your main question.
