  • Nice to have all your quacks in one place I suppose. Frankly the council officials should be ashamed for adding credibility to these witch-doctors. Alternative medicine has by definition either not been proven to work, or been proven not to work. The public need protection from these charlatans, not promoting them. The only shining light seems to be the ring school.
