What are the benefits of snake oil?

Snake oil has legitimate health benefits. It’s been used in Chinese medicine for a long time. It’s loaded with omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. They’re essential for brain and nervous system health, as well as regulating your moods. Snake oil has 20 percent more EPA than salmon oil, as analyzed in 1989 by the Western Journal of Medicine. It’s good for joint pain, arthritis, and bursitis. It supports a healthy cardiovascular system. 

In psychiatry, there’s no talk therapy; no blood test or medical test. In 2017, there was $20 billion dollars of fraud in the mental health care field. I find it ironic that a psychiatrist pushes the danger of alternative medicine, when they’re in a profession laden with more fraud than any other profession. And if you check out the profession’s bible, called the DSM, you’ll find many vague descriptions of mental health problems. I believe there’s a lot of attention paid to alternative health providers to keep the focus off of the quacks in the psychiatry profession. Although I know snake oil has become synonymous with quackery, I encourage you to consider it for its many legitimate health benefits.
