THE UNEXPLAINED examines the controversial world of alternative medicine.
In the world of medicine today, acupuncture is increasingly accepted and chiropractors are commonplace. But as more and more people become disenchanted with traditional medicine, they venture further afield into the realm of alternative medicine.
While many formerly "radical" cures are gaining currency, RADICAL HEALING documents the controversies and questions surrounding practices like the transference of healing energy and the power of magnets. Practitioners reveal how they came to their trade and how they work. Believers point to their own health as proof of the efficacy of these often bizarre-seeming methods. And traditional doctors offer a skeptical viewpoint, documenting the dangers that they fear are inherent in abandoning the tried-and-true methods of allopathic medicine.
THE UNEXPLAINEDTM goes behind the rhetoric and controversy to search for the truth about alternative medicine.
