I have been thinking a lot about what people might think if they read this blog after I die (if I die.) I know there will be people who will say that I should have stuck with mainstream medicine. That trying alternate approaches is irresponsible and that this is why I have been unable to find good help as far as someone looking after my whole case.
These ideas are quite common in the general populace. Many people believe that conventional medicine is the only way to go. But I think we need a rethink as a community. Alternate methods have clearly worked. There are countless examples of people getting better using alternate methods. Sadly there are basic problems with our approach to health. We don’t look at those who get better, we look at the statistics. We don’t ask what people have done to get better. Because there are no double blind studies verifying many alternate or lifestyle approaches to health it is assumed that they don’t work. The phrase “there is no proof that this will help you” is one I have heard far too often despite being able to point to concrete examples of hopeless cases using these techniques and getting better.
And in the end FUCK YOUR “no evidence”, if I wait for you to get the evidence I will be dead.
I chose this path, as many others have, because there was no other option…
