Chinese Slap Treatment
« on: November 13, 2016, 11:50:32 PM »
I've heard of many unconventional remedies for diabetes treatment, but I had never heard of the Chinese Slap Treatment. A 71 yr old T1 woman died in UK while undergoing this. And it costs a hell of a lot of money GBP 750/-

Yikes!  That is really scary! I so wish we could get our message out there so other diabetics don't fall for these crazy schemes.

How terrible that such schemes are allowed to take place.  What happened to that lady was torture.

So sad.  Some ancient traditions do help, some others not so much...
