Yeah I'll admit I probably coulda sugar coated to surgeon comment. LOL. But I've seen and read so much of people being taken advantage of, from the allopathic community that I tend not to be so kind in those regards. And it is unfair of me to say such things to imply it to all off the people in that community. But I get tired of seeing people continue to get sicker and poorer from it so......I tend to leave the sugar out of it.
franknbeans - I wasn't implying you had zero knowledge whatsoever. I was just saying that it sounds that you have never experienced nor have any knowledge from what I speak of. If you did, you would be astounded at what the human body is capable of doing. Teeth regrowing, limbs straightening, cavities healed, teeth pushing amalgams out and rebuilding, scar tissue going away, tumors dissolving, organs rebuilding, bones which have been broken for years finally healing fully, people in wheelchairs who were paralyzed finally walking. It just goes on and on. Can you say that you've seen the same via medication? And it's not fair to cite alleviation for a few years to only need more medication or surgery, but actual healing. And can you say that you've seen it happen again and again for thousands upon thousands of people. Day in and day out?
Just wondering...do you know who funds those scientific studies??? Those studies cost tens of millions of dollars, so it's quite apparent that it's someone with something to gain. And it's been revealed, that many times those studies are fudged so they can sell their products. Commercials on tv are showing the after effects of this. To me the real proof is when the person doing the study has nothing to gain. How about the thousands of people speaking up of their healing when they changed their eating habits. I suppose that can't qualify as, "scientific proof", because no one can make enormous amounts of profit from it.
busysmurf - Nope, never was anyone's teacher, nor would I want to be. That's why I suggest places to begin studying, because IMO, if someone isn't willing to figure out how to take control of their own body then....well, it's their body they have to deal with the pain. And not all holistic ways are the same either, that's for dang sure. So to lump what I'm suggesting to be researched with everything else out there is unfair to it. And not all practitioners fully understand how damaging it can be if the process is rushed. There's a reason why they have clinics for drug addicts to help them kick their habit. If they detox them too quickly they can get very sick or worse. Same thing happens when cleansing a very diseased toxic body to bring it to a place of healing.
I'm not saying it's the only way either, at least I hope I didn't say it's the only way....nope, didn't. There are definitely others, but the ones I know of involve letting go of even larger beliefs than ones such as food or medication. But I'm speaking of actual healing, not just alleviation.
Basically after all of this quibbling all that I was really trying to say is.....
Incitatus32 - your body can heal. It has an absolutely amazing potential for self healing, even if what your doctor is saying sounds grim. Your body is much smarter than doctors, and it's been shown that you can heal people through belief and the way you talk to them alone. Simply saying positive things, "IMO, all doctors need a course on learning this in their schooling", will give the patient the positive feeling that they are getting better. And it's been shown that this alone can has an enormous positive impact upon the health of the patient. And when this is combined with eating healthier it literally renders doctors speechless at the rapid recovery of their patients. Some of the stories I've heard of where people had broken bones are quite comical to the reaction the doctor had.
Truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second it is violently opposed. Third it is accepted as self evident.
