You're right, although just from a quick look those 3 clinical trials have very small sample sizes and show possible correlations - it's hardly a meta analysis, and it's the sort of criticism that I see studies of alternative medicine attract. But yes, I was wrong when I said there was no known physical pathology, my bad.

As long as diagnosis and treatment is centered around discrete disease entities with homogeneous causation and progression, it underplays symptomology that greatly varies from case to case and from patient to patient. It underestimates variation in human health and illness, variation in real world cases that clinical trials can not so easily replicate.
