    Franknbeans - You don't know those people. And to discredit them through your ignorance is ridiculous. I can't verify anything negative that has or has not happened with Dr. Graham, as I was not there. Though what about the thousands of people they have healed? You seem to have glanced right over that little tidbit. I see you constantly trying to pick apart what I've suggested with an apparent lack of experience with what I suggest, yet I don't see you ever sharing about the vast amount of harm you've seen from the things done in your field.

    When you experience what nutrition can do for the body you will understand why I'm sounding like a broken record. I'm only trying to share what I've found IME, and knowledge to be true. Eating healthy creates amazing healing and brings lasting health to even the sickest and most broken of bodies. I don't understand why you keep trying to discredit that fact. You trying to imply that I don't know what I'm talking about and discredit it, when you have no experience in what I speak of, is absolutely insane.

    I'm sorry but eating right while very very important will NOT fix everything. I think you spread a very very dangerous message TotalFreedom.

    Yes people should do their own research, but so often things should go hand in hand, neither modern medicine, or healthy eating and alternative medicine has all the answers.

    Eat well, it will do you so much good, and help you recover from medical interventions that are needed.

    Because I'm saying that eating very healthy is good? LOL

    I suppose that you have experience in healing the human body through proper nutrition to form an opinion that it has limitations and that it's dangerous then? Of course we know that this is a rhetorical question though.

    Thanks, totalfreedom, for the input, as a nurse I am well aware of the role nutrition plays in health and healing. As a psychiatric nurse I am also aware that the sort of blind, fanatical devotion you are expressing is often symptomatic of deeper mental issues. Yes, good nutrition may help bolster my immune system and give my body the building blocks it needs to recovery from surgery...nothing I eat is going to restore my severely arthritic knees to their original state. Everyone else, thank you for giving me some helpful feedback.

    Good luck with the surgery & the PT. My hubby had his knee replaced on '04, & is still doing fine.

    No I totally agree that proper nutrition is vital, and that a lot of illness and disease could be prevented or reversed by eating well.

    It is however total nonsense to spout it as a 100% cure all for everything, there was a reason that modern medicine developed, because healthy living did not cure everything. I agree medicine has gone to far, and very often a prescription for good diet and exercise is all that is needed to remedy a problem. I also agree that good diet and exercise will significantly improve outlooks after surgical intervention, the body is a marvellous thing with far more ability to self recover than we give it credit for.

    BUT

    BellasMom has it right, your fanatical devotion and insistence that it will cure everything makes you sound like a crazy, and the good parts of your message are lost.

    True. I feel also as if that's how it's begining to sound, simply because I kept being criticized about the message from people who have already formed an opinion, yet they have no experience with it.

    Funny, you assume that no one has any experience, you maybe right, but you don't know that do you?

    If you want to get a message over and everyone keeps criticizing you may want to reflect on the message, your delivery of it, or the target audience.

    Nods in agreement. I have a BSN in nursing, and part of that 4 year degree does indeed include nutrition which is without a doubt a huge factor in overall health. But, it also taught me to be analytical and to demand well controlled studies and verifiable peer reviewed research before I take anything as "best practice" .

    TotalFreedom, take this to heart. There is a reason that what you espouse is not "best practice" in the medical world. No, there isn't a huge uber super secret conspiracy against the adrenal potions and blood extracts your gurus sell online. No, the medical community at large is not ignoring the illogical leaps another of your sources made in the late 1800s out of fear or predjudice-yeah, starving yourself is very effective in controlling the disease process .

    The plain facts are that the modern wizards you cite with such reverence are out to make a fast buck, selling "hope in a bottle" to people backed up by shady research that does not stand up to peer review or hard research.

    To the OP, my sincerest apologies for the threadjacking. PM me if you want more insight on the TKR.
