And I do believe Meditation would fall under mental health and in that sense it is not really an alternative medicine at all
ah ok, then that's a bit strange.
meditation was mentioned several times in that youtube clip... it was bunched up with crazy things like it belongs in that category.
I guess we have different ideas of what 'alternative medicine' is. To me, it's pretty much anything that's not drugs.

Most things start out as a theory or an idea though and as far as i know Noetics is still fairly new.
I do appreciate the explanation on the journals and peer-reviewing, even though i was slightly aware of how it worked i wasn't 100% sure.
Only medication i use if i need to are headache painkillers, try not to use any.
Yup, that's what I was asking. The term was made up by the institute itself, so calling it a field of science is a bit strange. If I made up the Shifticus Institute of Science and said shifticus is the study of being awesome. I'd then publish papers about my theory of awesome. That wouldn't make shifticus a field of science, now would it? Wikipedia calls noetic theory an "alternative metaphysical philosophy" which sounds about right.
And yeah, I don't take any medication either. Unless I am really really sick, which is only about once a year anyway. I've found that it doesn't really help anyway.
