Traduction en anglais : Unconventional diagnostic and therapeutic methods in environmental medicine.
In the sphere of environmental medicine - analogous to other fields like oncology and chronic diseases - not only proven and approved methods, but also unconvential methods are offered, without evidence of efficacy.
The application of these methods has the possible consequence of wrong diagnosis and malpractice.
Examples are discussed such as Kirlian photography, electroacupuncture according to Voll, bioresonance diagnosis/therapy, kinesiology, regulation therapy according to Rost, « clinical ecology » according to Runow with, among others, the provocation/neutralisation test, a vaccination therapy with E. coli and finally electrosmog as an environmental noxa.
Concerning the admissibility of contested methods, statements of medical specialist societies, judgements, and the law of medical products are quoted.
In conclusion, the question of the origin of the ideas and alleged results of unconvential medicine is followed up and conclusions are drawn.
