Thanks for posting up these links.
Personally, I would not touch any of these with a barge poll, I have fast learnt to become sceptical on some of these claimed wonder drugs, that usually attract a nice fee! The Meritin seems herbal based, again I advise caution, just because it is herbal, does not mean it is any less potent than say conventional drugs, in fact, my Nephrologist (for kidneys) warned me off popping herbal cures, unless he checked it out first because of the nephtoxic effect it could have on my renal system.
Acupuncture I dont have so much of a problem with personally, I have had it for lower back treatment, it did nothing to cure my back, but did make me feel very relaxed for a good few hours after which was nice.
I am mindful that at some point I think we all become so desperate for respite from our symptoms we look anywhere for help, but I work on the premise if they were that good the NHS would have heard of it, and be using it surely?
I guess one has to make their own individual choices, but I work on if it is to good to be true, then it probably is. I'd save my money to be honest.
