I guess this has degerated into the herbies vs. the druggies, and the only winners are the worms.
My part in this is that I've closed my mouth and let things pass when posts have been made that were really disagreeable & personally directed at someone. So I'm not going to stop posting, but I have to say, that losing a moderator who gives a rip is a bad thing. Next time, I intend to speak up.
In the interests of killing worms, I'd like to suggest that we let bygones be bygones, and start off with a clean slate.
After all, this forum is really about getting well, and I actually don't care how someone does that, as long as they arrive at a better quality of life. So Darisuh, I have to say that I think some of your posts were over the top, and you should count to one hundred backwards before you hit the send button. And so should I, and so should Glax.
Darius, if it is true as Webmaster says, that herbal medicine is poor in Sweden, then you have a lot to learn from us. Here in the US, because of the US system being as dysfuntional as it is, herbal medicine is a good option for many of us. And we've learned to make it work effectively. You guys can snicker, laugh, call us Medieval, but we have a lot to offer.
I am also not convinced that herbal medicine is always the best way, I've personally seen so much crummy stuff from medical practioners of both varieties in the USA that I decided it was cheaper and safer to generally do it myself. As a result I've learned a thing or two along the way. But the results I got from drugs were bad, so I've used herbs. Quite bad. I no eye floaters prior to the one drug I tried, and I now have a biggie, and I'm pretty sure I got dissemenation when I used the drug.
No more of that for me, thank you. And that is my personal decision, I have since effectively treated my own condition using nothing but herbs. But it took actualy work, research, willingness to try stuff that I didn't want to do, and listening to a lot of other points of view.
How is my health now? Very, very much improved. Am I cured?
I have a way to go towards being as healthy as I'd like to be. But I have really cut down the parasite problem, I've addressed a serious deficiency (lack of iodine) I've gotten rid of fibrocystic breast disease, and I'm detoxing heavy metals. Do I have parasites still? Probably I do have some, I live in a toxic environment, and I am constantly assaulted. And I am likely often reinfected by a poor food supply.
Am I better than I was, yes!!!!!!!!
Well put Julie! When I first started out on this journey to actually really improving my health by getting to the bottom of what has been causing my sypmtoms, I was amazed at what was out on the net (the good the bad and the ugly). I also learned that what works for one person doesn't work for another. Also no doubt about it, natural herbs can be quite powerful drugs. Debates are a good way to learn a thing or two toward the achievment of curing ourselves.
For me - I need a combination of drugs and herbal to heal. But the right combination of herbal, diet and lifestyle would keep me out of here to begin with!
