I realize the average person thinks I'm some sort of radical fringe health nut (and I'm nowhere near some folks), and while allopathic medicine failed me in a big way (and harmed me), I know in some areas it has it's place. Still, I voiced an "alternative" suggestion on a dog-fancier's website I participate in, to a woman who's young son is having an invasive heart procedure today for cardiac arrhythmia that she might want to research magnesium supplementation. I was very careful about the wording, but I don't think it was very well received, and of course I shouldn't be surprised. If it were me, I would want ALL the information I could get, which is why I dared say anything. I would have been grateful for someone giving me the heads up early on in my search for health, could have saved me a lot of time, money and suffering.
I tell myself to just keep a lid on it because I've alienated potential friends this way who now think I'm a whack job, and yet I can't seem to keep my mouth shut. People don't want to know, don't want to believe the FDA doesn't have their best interests at heart, think their government isn't corrupted by private corporate interests, and don't want to challenge their doctors. Seriously, what the hell?
Some stuff is getting more recognized and accepted already - like I about fell over when the new gyno (an M.D.) I went to last month KNEW about Iodine
supplementation for FBD and recommended it, along with lymphatic massage! Where did that start? Will knowledge about that spread, or will it get squashed? When will they acknowledge Liver Flushing
works? What's next?
Change happens so slowly, and would never happen if people didn't speak up and share their experiences, and not just in forums for the like-minded. It's like you gotta sway the public mindset gradually because people are asleep. Who is funding studies for cancer research if the cure doesn't involve drugs or surgery? No one, right? Why isn't it all over the news how toxic fluoride is? (But then I also want to know why crop circle formations aren't bigger news....)
I feel like I'm part of some underground movement of self-experimenting pioneers because there is almost no other way.
I won't roll over.
