Overall care (draft)

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…

I am slightly taller than average, have brown hair, enjoy rock climbing, and got told I would be dead within 5 years in 2010. I have chosen to disregard this :P

    Amelia, thanks for giving Jerome his final voice, it is what was needed for all of us who followed his thoughts and progress- I dare say he would have wanted this too. His words and thoughts are always here along with the memory of a very brave, strong young man full of hope and not ever prepared to give up even in the end. I have listened and hoped too, we always understood his reasons for going further and investigating other means, why wouldn’t you. Our love to you and to all those close to him throughout his journey I hope he has peace at last.
