Thanks to a fellow skeptic for pointing out this CAM practice, which is sadly not any more bizarre than many others which are more popular.

    @ skeptvet. Thanks for posting my link in “Humor.” That was the intention of the article. Japanese Eyeball Poking is not a real CAM practice yet, but if you meet anyone that wants to be the first patient, send them my way:)

    @ ellen. The Three Stooges were of course well aware of the benefits of eyeball poking and practiced it accordingly. Thanks for the image.

    Congratulations on a fine article in the noble tradition of A Modest Proposal! The fact that so many people are uncertain about the seriousness of the subject is a testament both to the quality of the writing and also the wackiness of so much “real” CAM.

    Wow. A comparison to Swift. However strongly or weakly you meant it, skeptvet, I can guarantee it will keep my ego going through 2011.
    Really, though, it’s a pity when parodies are taken seriously (as I hope my Eyeball Poking article is not). It’s like there’s no end to the ridiculousness or to what people will believe.
    Anyways, thanks again for the post and link. -JM

  6. Gosh, it took me awhile to figure out that Japanese Eyeball Poking was NOT a real CAM therapy. I finally realized it when the good doctor’s initials were D.U.H. I guess that shows how far out there some of these real treatments are!
