Hello, E-Hellions! Longtime reader, first time poster.
I am a member of a social organization. I've missed two meetings due to a health condition. I mentioned this to one of the other members, as she sent me an e-mail after the second meeting asking if I was okay. She practices a form of alternative healing and said that this form of healing has been proven to heal my condition without drugs. She offered the first session for free due to being a member of the organization. I attended this first session and decided to do some research online as it seemed a bit... well, too good to be true.
Based on the online research, I've found that a number of things she said about the treatment were untrue (for example, she said it was FDA approved, when in reality the FDA has banned the method of treatment from the USA. This is not really relevant to us as we do not live in the USA, but the fact that they have banned it gave me pause.) A number of investigative reports on this treatment have revealed it to be a scam.
I sent her a message saying that I did not plan to continue treatment. She has asked me to explain why.
Is it impolite to send her the research I did and what I discovered? I am concerned that, by sending it to her, she would think I was calling HER a scam artist. I don't think that she is; she seems to fully believe in this treatment, and I would hate to cause awkwardness at our social organization. However, I think it's impolite to completely ignore her question...
