I get the feeling that homeopathic, herbal or other alternatives
to mainstream medicine are often viewed as nonsense and 
their proponents as quacks. As a scientist myself I like to 
keep an open mind, and I would appreciate reading an unbiased
opinion here and finding any good references on the following:

What are the medical community's views on this subject?
Are the claims made by the remedies and supplements you can find in 
local health food stores being actively researched?
