Three years ago I did a gallbladder cleanse and was surprised to expell a cluster of parasites after the gallstones. I took the parasites, which were the size of small, skinless grapes with "spiderlike" legs, very delicate, and floating in the water, over to my HMO. For fun, I brought along the gallstones, one of them over an inch across. I later found out that the doctor wrote in my medical records that I imagined I had my Gallstones and that I had brought in spiders in tap water. She said we had discussed my psychiatric history and a psychiatric evaluation was recommended. Nothing of the sort was said to me, and aside from the doctor obviously being hostile to naturopathic medicine, I had no idea there was a problem. A year later, when I went in for a sore throat and intestinal upset, I was told they didn't exist. It took me 1 1/2 years to see the comments which had been written. I filed a complaint with the Health Department against both the doctor and the hospital. Be aware that some doctors will brand you in your medical records for opposing their orthodoxy. Even though I had a picture of the Gallstones and extensive documentation, I am told all I can do is attach a note to my files. I have found I cannot even discuss this problem without my reputation being put in question. I advise you to get a copy of your medical records including doctors comments, and watch what you say. I can be taken out of context and made to make you look like you look bad. (It's time to take off the rose colored glasses and realize how threatened Orthodox Medicine is of the natural health movement.)
If anyone has had similar treatment, I would appreciate knowing more and any suggestions for exposing the problem.
