Ever notice those that regularly cast stones in this newsgroup against alternative medicine seem to have an agenda with those that have chosen to use some form of alternative medicine? It reminds me of a certain group of individuals, who stand to lose financial gain if the word gets out about alternative therapies and how they do work. Just like with Jesus, it is over "pure jealousy" of healing powers, that made them so insanely jealous. And for the fact, that conventional medicine is not getting every dollar. Is this not true, and is this not the real reason, some of you are hell bent on attempting to destroy every individual that has the guts to step up to the plate, and state how alternative medicine has helped them? Some of you are absolutely clueless about freedoms we have to choose what type of medicine we use, and dislike those that use alternative medicine and promote healing which is to find the root of the medical problem instead of masking it with drugs. Some of us don't believe in being co-dependent on pharmaceuticals, to make it through the day. I know numerous people that live with so much pain every day, that in order to make it through the day, they have to keep themselves doped up on pain killers to last. Is this any kind of life for these people? When I've asked why doesn't your doctor look for the source of the pain, and do something about it...well, their doctor doesn't have time, or has been told to look for the "quick fix". These people are merely surviving, and not living because they are being "controlled". This type of sadistic behavior from doctors who allegedly took an oath when they became doctors is little more than just their friendly pharmaceutical company. Or what kind of bonuses they've received over the years for their quick appointments? For those that claim anti-semitism remarks about those of us that are not of your faith, perhaps you need explain how some of your people were justified in crucifying Christ, and why some of your people today are attempting to crucify those individuals have discovering alternative healing therapies that do work. For those that have been harassed by individuals in this newsgroup that do not like alternative therapies, remember, the words spoken years ago, "forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." They are attempting to crucify methods that work, because they do not understand, and for which there is no financial gain for themselves or their friends... A question to those that continue to harass...is it THAT important for you to be sitting on what you have been led to believe is the "right side of the fence", or would you rather back down, and THINK for yourself before denouncing therapies for which you have no personal experience, and for which others have.....the choice is yours, but remember if you choose the wrong choice, you may find yourself in a situation later on in life, as the rest of us have, when there is no form of conventional medicine that will work for you, and then what will you do then...die....or try an alternative? I chose trying alternative therapies....what will you try?
