This source is a website that surveys chiropractic controversies and issues that patients should be aware of. It points out that some chiropractic therapy does work some of the time but the original idea of chiropractic was that any health problem can be cured by manipulation but there is little evidence showing that this is true. Also the article talks about how adjusting the neck can be dangerous and many chiropractors have been sued over this. He also writes how there is controversy within the profession itself. This can help with my paper because it points out the issue of if we should be trusting chiropractors and if it is safe.

Prior to doing the readings and watching the in-class videos, my general stance on hallucinogens was that they should definitely be legally prohibited. My stance on this issue was formed out of my own perceptions on what I thought of them and not really based on any real reasonable information on the subject. However, after the readings and watching the videos I find myself more educated on the subject, I now find myself questioning my previous position. My understanding of what I thought of hallucinogens was based on highly subjective views, on being stereotypical, and like the Spanish, I viewed them as evil drugs in way. However, now that I’ve been exposed to the religious and exploratory side I find myself with mix feeling and on board with both views.

1. I believe the best illustration of tension between local culture and globalisation in Samir’s story is his account of the Medicine Man, Don Candido of the BriBri tribe in Costa Rica. Samir details how he had found two parasites in his arm after his stay in Costa Rica and had to endure a 3 and a half week ordeal of toxic daily shots in the US in order to save his life. Samir kept thinking there must be a better solution to this problem and upon his next visit to Costa Rica, the medicine man, Don Candido, revealed that he knew a very simple treatment that would only last for 3 days and would be gentler on the body.

Having good medical records is very important, for the proper care of patients. “Medical records can be used to manage healthcare, track healthcare, provide clinical data, meet regulatory requirements, and document healthcare” (Allen, 2013, P. 57). Without the proper documentation there is no proof that it was ever done.
2.2 Description of Wound and its Association with Microbes Skin is the largest organ in the human body, plays a crucial role in the sustenance of life through regulation and maintainance of water and electrolyte balance, thermoregulation, and also acting as a barrier to external noxious agents including microorganisms, however, when the epithelial integrity of skin is broken, a wound results (Zafar et al. 2008). A wound is an abrasion in the skin and the exposure of subcutaneous tissue after the loss of skin integrity provides moist, warm and nutritious environment that is conducive for microbial colonization and proliferation (Duguid and Colle, 1975). Wounds disrupt the protective barrier of the skin thereby creating a channel of entry
In order to answer this question we will take a look at the meaning of ‘placebo’ and ‘placebo effect’, along with it’s historic and changing connotations. Once we have established how we should define the power of ‘placebo’ we will explore it’s use in herbal medicine, both in some traditional systems of herbal medicine and modern Western herbal medicine. We will conclude by considering to what extent ‘placebo’ is useful in modern Western herbal medicine. It has been suggested that the derivation and definition of the word ‘placebo’ implies disreputable trickery on the part of the practitioner when it comes to the treatment of patients (p.78 Mitchell and Cormack 1998) . Furthermore, the current NHS guidelines when discussing ‘ The placebo
