Do alternative therapies really work? Open-minded physicist Kathy Sykes travels the world to explore the history of alternative therapies, their contemporary applications, and the arguments for and against them. Meeting practitioners and medical researchers, listening to patients tell their stories, reading through clinical studies, and observing brain scans and other medical tests, Sykes helps viewers learn the extent to which mainstream scientific research can be reconciled with the testimonies of satisfied patients.
