i do sometimes because when i was a kid we live in this rural area wherein quack doctors are really famous. we have this quack doctor who serves us for more than 7 years and until now. she doesn't operates you like we see in TV's she'll just locate or find what is the cause of your illness and then she'll give you some herbal remedies for that. I've been in that situation already and i really healed, maybe herbal medicines helps a lot. and there's a situation too that my cousin was hospitalized and doctors don't even said anything what is the cause of my cousin's illness and in three days she died. my mother ask for a quack doctor's opinion and they've performed some this and that, then they've found out that my cousin just touched some dwarfs or whatever creatures it is. they think that if only they consulted a quack doctor first, my cousin would be still alive now

I think you mean are doctors that are homeopathic doctors, not "quack" docotrs. A quack docotor would be a person who is not a real doctor but practices mediucine and is not reliable. I think homepathic doctors do work. However, they are just like any other docotor, if you don't see improvements or don't agree with what they say to do you should get a second opinion.

I do not think labelling them as quack doctors is right especially when you are dealing with illnesses caused by elementals and other unforeseen beings. I use to casts spells on my enemies or people that were cruel to me because I've got fed up waiting for justice and change. Believe it or not, the spells worked. But I realize later than there is need for these spells because it is against my religion and I pretty much caused damage to one person that I really cared for (we had a big spat). She kept on itchying all night long and seemed oblivious to it. By then, I realized that I do not know how to reverse the spell I placed on her so I rather not practice my "magic" to lose it(you need to charge it like a car battery to work) in order for the spell to lose it strength and disappear.

no not really. but i believe in traditional medicine. usually quack doctors are using herbal medicine or traditional medicine that our parents or grandparents already know existed and which i believe do heal people. its the prayers or rituals that they are performing that i dont really believe in.

Actually I don't believe in quack doctors. But I think there are really some illnesses up to this day that medicine could not explain. But I still believe that they are illnesses and not caused by supernatural beings.
