There ARE truths out there that are not accepted by the mainstream. They are generally not studied, not for health and not for technology by so-called modern Western science and medicine. You can find out about these things, the knowledge is out there, but to the unresearched, untried person such ignored knowledge is just superstition or fantasy. 氣 "Qi" for example. I've found that every Chinese person of the older generation (I don't know about these kids today tho) 100% KNOWS that there is a FORCE called "Qi" 氣 (pronounced "chee") that can be focused by the mind and body and used. My Chinese uncle has told me how in the past he has demonstrated this power to non-believing Western people by breaking a rock with his fingers. He focuses his "Qi" then hits the somewhat small stone, and it just SPLITS in half. Qi is something on the whole that is completely ignored by modern day Western science and medicine.
