Graphology

Graphology, or Handwriting Analysis, is the study of handwriting, especially when employed as a means of analyzing character. Graphology is claimed to be useful for everything from understanding health issues, morality and past experiences to hidden talents and mental problems.

Iridology

Iridology is the study of the iris to diagnose disease. Iridology is based on the questionable assumption that every organ in the human body has a corresponding location within the iris and that one can determine whether an organ is healthy or diseased by examining the iris rather than the organ itself.

Magnet Therapy

Magnet therapy is a type of "alternative" medicine which claims that magnetic fields have healing powers. Some claim that magnets can help broken bones heal faster, but most of the advocacy comes from those who claim that magnets relieve pain.
