In alternative medicine, "polarity theory" is the idea that the top and right side of our body is positively charged while the bottom and left side of our body is negatively charged. While "polarity theory" treatments will often encompass a number of different mechanisms, they all come back to the premise that our energy and polarity needs to be put back into balance for the purpose of good health.

This is the main index for issues dealing with skepticism, critical thinking, logic and arguments.

The second section is about Skeptical Investigations - the practical application of the critical thinking skills covered in the first section. Here you will find critiques of things like astrology, alternative medicine, parapsychology, the New Age and more.
