We are creating a system to learn from the experience of what you and others are already doing. By creating an easy to use, scientifically sound system that allows people to report what they experience with particular therapies we can collect usable information. This information will be shared back with those who submitted information and others. It will also be used as “pilot” data for formal scientific studies if it appears promising.
Testimonials are nice, but not usable scientifically. There have been many really crazy therapies throughout human history that have had glowing testimonials. They were eventually often found to be no better, and sometimes worse, than placebo treatments or no treatment.
It is close to insanity that we live in a society where millions and millions of people are doing all kinds of different therapies on their own and no one is learning from the process. The main science going on in this scenario is that of business: How do we sell more and more of our products so we can make more money? We need to apply science to help people and change healthcare so that it is about people and health again. Therefore, we will create a system so that we may actively learn from each other in a scientifically sound way.
