False pregnancy... gosh... that disease exists...I read before a disease about a woman that doesn't know she was pregnant untill she gave birth without the help of anyone... The world is getting weirder and weirder...
Give us a link to that story. She would have had to have conception from the sperm meeting an egg cell. I have heard of reptiles doing it, but not humans.

Nice to know that you need someone else to find your crap for you, Kenji.
I also would appreciate pictures of this girl who miraculous birth.
this was a pointless flame. you could have very well have looked up the information yourself. Kenji was correct, you were wrong. With two scientific articles, that's all the proof needed for this off-topic debate.

"I dont belive in alt. med. ... they dont always work." Well, the same can also be said for conventional medicine. Nothing works 100% of the time for everybody.
"Herbs and stuff .... i havent ever seen them produce results as people say they do. I think its use less." I have. However, the same caveat should be applied to alternative medicine as to conventional medicine: Do your research, consult with practitioners from both sides, then decide which modalities, conventional and alternative, would give you the best chance of feeling better.

I believe there is alternative medicine
Seriously, I'm pretty sceptical of alternative medicine. For the most part, I feel that it's results are often the same as a placebo (sugar pill). I guess I'd like to hear about reputable studies done for it and then I'd be more interested in the results.
Important note: If it works, that does not necessarily mean that the reasons why it works are right. For instance, just because I feel better because I've been poked with needles doesn't prove that there is some spirtual energy that's being manipulated in me. I don't like how mystical explanations get for it. Positive results are never an indicator of proof.
I think that the spiritualist part of it is a way that cultures have used their existing knowledge base to draw parallels between the known and the unknown. We do the same thing today.
If someone believes that it is "energy manipulation", that's okay. If they can manipulate energy and fix the pain in the shoulder I broke, then I'll write them a check. I'll also apply DMSO, heat and swallow a tylenol or two. Between these efforts, I might get some relief. People might gasp and say, "No! Tylenol's not good for you!" I didn't say I was going to chew up an entire bottle. I said I'd swallow a couple. And as far as whether it's "good" for me? Neither is the cigarette I'm smoking. It's just that it works for me.
