My mom keeps telling me, "If it's not hurting anyone, what is the big deal if someone believes it"
No one that doesn't understand the harm of this stuff realizes that preventing someone from getting tested and effective treatment can make things devastatingly worse for the person.
I just found out my uncle has prostate cancer, (they found it incredibly early and it's contained and he's going to get surgery for it, so don't worry about him, he will be fine), if my mom was in charge, she would be implementing some homeopathy and therapeutic touch to try to heal him. If my uncle was a dumbass and went to do that instead of going straight for surgery, I wouldn't have such high expectations that he will be absolutely fine.
This energy work stuff is actually what killed my dog. My dog suffered from kushings disease the last year or so of her life. Instead of getting proper treatment, my mom decided to "charge up a white cotton cloth with positive energy and wrap the dog in it". I fucking swear, I could scream at how angry I am that we didn't go and catch it right away instead of delaying like she did. I never cried from something or someone dieing before in my life and still don't for some reason, except for when my dog died. I have never felt so depressed. It hit me hard.
I guess that is why I am so against this pseudoscience healing bullshit....
