Doctors and Clinics

I found many people on the Internet are wondering what clinics are providing this treatment and what are the doctors that are most well known in this field. Some of them laid out the foundations for us to understand long time ago. Some others are still working to understand invisible mechanisms with tubes and animals in the test labs. Others run the official clinical trials to prove it all to orthodox community at the universities and hospitals, while others - doctors and practitioners challenge bringing hope to those who may be need it most at the field today.
