If you're so into your Shakespeare, lend me your ear:
To gild refined gold, to paint the lily, to throw perfume on the violet... is just fucking silly

So many logical fallacies.

For one, you are making argument from antiquity. Acupuncture being old and surviving has nothing to do with it being effective.
Homeopathy has been around for 3 centuries too, still doesn't work. Wishful thinking.

The problem with "alternative" medicine is that people stop regular treatment and get worse. A lot of times the process is irreversible. That's the harm!

Alternative medicine has either been proven not to work or not proven to work.

Do you know what we call medicine that has been proven to work? MEDICINE!
