The way I cope is to do my best to ignore the numbness. There is no relief. There is plenty of snake oil spread in the cancer community: baking soda cures, reiki, acupuncture, Chinese herbs, essential oils, homeopathy. Yes, they could work for some. Placebo effects are powerful. That’s why the gold standard when testing if a treatment is safe *and* effective is a double blind clinical study where the treatment beats the placebo. I looked at the FB group and the protocol doesn’t meet that standard. And no given the placebo effect “it worked for me” doesn’t cut it, especially when you’re telling people to wean themselves off their medications before starting.
