Friendship consists in forgetting what one gives, and remembering what one receives.

  • Distorted picture of the effectiveness of alternative medicine.

    Interesting statistics from internet Forums:†
    People are about 100 times more likely to report a negative experience with any therapy, then a positive!† For every single person reporting a negative experience, there are at least 100 people who have had a positive experience, but they were never motivated to write a message about it.† Being healthy and being pain free, or symptoms free is not very motivating. Not as motivating as gallstone attack, or kidney stones attack!

    Why? Because, when we are healthy, we don't care about health.† When we are healthy, we don't frequent health forums.†When we are healthy, we don't contact newspapers asking them to publish our story. Let's face it: majority of people visiting CureZone are people who have some unpleasant health problem.† Once they solve their problem, majority (but not all) leave CureZone without ever reporting positive results, and the only time you ever hear back from them is when they encounter another problem, and they come back asking for help.† Those who are successful in curing or managing their health problems are usually leaving CureZone while those who are not very successful are staying and trying, while in the meantime, posting messages about their unsuccessful attempts to regain health, or about problems encountered.

    Don't get me wrong.† This is not something that is unique to Alternative medicine or something that is unique to CureZone.† This is something that is common on all health forums.† I will give you just a few examples from mainstream medicine. Take a look at Gallbladder Surgery Forum:

    Of over 400 messages, you will find 5 people reporting positive experience after Gallbladder Surgery while you will find hundreds of people reporting negative.† You will also find many stories where Surgery caused serious health problems even death.

    Again, the same story on this thread:
    The thread contains over 200 messages, and you will find 5 people talking positive about Gallbladder Surgery!

    By reading those messages and by naturally estimating your chances based on those reports, you may believe that there are very many people dying as the consequence of gallbladder surgery,† when in reality, that surgery belongs to the group of safest surgical procedures and very few people die annually.

    The reality is: 70- 80% of people feel just fine after the gallbladder surgery, and are usually symptoms free after few weeks.

    But, could you get that picture by reading CureZone forums? NO way!.

    Forums are often "painting" a very distorted picture of any therapy.

    Why is that so?† Reason is simple:† people who have positive experience, those who are symptoms free and pain free after the surgery,† they are healthy and they don't need CureZone.

    Why would they come to CureZone and discuss Surgery? Very few are actually doing that, usually those who have some other health problem.

    Now that you understand how hard it is to get healthy people to post a message,† I have a very simple request:

    Please, if you have had a positive experience with Gallbladder Surgery or with any therapy discussed on CureZone, please report it.† It doesn't have to be a 3 page story.† Even a single sentence can sometimes say more then a whole page of text.† You don't have to write a book. You don't have to share your complete medical history with us.† Just post a simple message.

    We also have a special forum where we are collecting experiences with Liver Flush: Liver Flush - Reporting Results:††

    If you completed at least 6 flushes, or if liver flushes have helped you regain health, please post your message inside that forum.† It might help somebody. It is not important to post how many cholesterol stones you got, or how big those stones were.† It is far more important to post what symptoms you were experiencing before, and how your health was changed after the liver flushes.
    In case you got out some calcified stones, you should report it.† Also, if your stones were analyzed, please report the results.

    Please, do not post a message after a single liver flush. One flush is rarely enough to solve any health problem. Wait until you tried at least several flushes, 6, 10 or more, so that you are certain that flushes did-or did not work.

    CureZone forums are not unique. If you read major news sites or newspapers, you will see that 95% of all stories on alternative medicine are negative stories.† Often, it is death.
    Few examples:

There is a devil in every berry of the grape.

The head learns new things, but the heart forever practices old experiences.

  • Now that we know how internet and media is creating an extremely distorted picture of alternative medicine, it is fairly easy to understand why there are still people who choose to believe to "Quackbusters" and their overly paranoid websites.† Quackbusters are convinced that alt-med people are evil. They call alternative medicine sCAM.† Do you know what is the difference between paranoia and phobia?† The fear in paranoia is usually associated with the perceived malevolent intent of another person or persons.† People with paranoia are convinced that the causes of their fears are real and that their fears are rational, while adults with phobias know that the symptoms of fear or anxiety that they experience are excessive and irrational responses to essentially benign objects and situations.
    Quackbusters totally believe that majority of people involved in alternative medicine are bad, uneducated, stupid and are after your money (scammers).† At least majority of them believe so. If you would read quackwatch website, you would come to conclusion that if you use alternative medicine, it will increase your chances of dying or being seriously injured roughly 100 times!?

    Few days ago I joined a healthfraud mailing list (quackwatch mailing list), and in just a few days, I was able to read messages from at least 20 people who are overly paranoid about any and every form of alternative medicine.† Some of them are so paranoid, that they call naturopaths blood sucking parasites who are sucking blood from their patients until patients die.

    Here are few examples of humor from healthfraud list:
    • My aroma therapist stinks,
      my bowel cleansing therapist is full of sh-t!

      My acupuncturist keeps needling me,
      I don't see eye-to-eye with my iridologist,
      my graphologist can't read my writing,
      I feel manipulated by my chiropractor,
      my touch therapist won't keep her hands off me,
      I can't count on my numerologist,
      my homeopath doesn't give me much of anything,
      and my psychic healer makes me sick.

      I think my chiropractor is cracking up,
      my massage therapist is rubbing me the wrong way,
      I don't believe in my faith healer anymore,
      my channeler is on a different frequency.

Hear one side and you will be in the dark. Hear both and all will be clear.

  • Husband's chronic canker sore problem gone
    My husband used to suffer from canker sores. Every month he would have at least one, sometimes more - it has been this way for many years. They are thought to be caused by allergy. Since doing 3 liver flushes over a year ago now, he has not had a single one since.
  • The Emotional Disturbances Caused by Vaccines
    1984 The British Epidemiological Research Laboratory publishes a study relative to Pertussis vaccinations, saying "Since the decline in Pertussis immunization, hospital admissions and death rates from whooping cough have fallen unexpectedly."
  • Skull Cancer and Worms Images (Warning! Strong images!)
    Photographs taken of a patient with skull cancer. Skull and scalp are covered with cancerous tumor.
  • Castor Oil defeats persistent arm wart
    My mother had what looked like a raised mole on her arm for a very long time. When my father died it changed color and went funny then went back to its normal look.
  • Edgar Cayce's MS Treatment by Dudley
    I developed multiple sclerosis in 1991 and gradually, over a two year period, overcame it using an alternative treatment suggested by Edgar Cayce.
  • Experimental Treatment Heals Paralyzed Dogs
    Researchers at Purdue University in Indiana treated the dogs with a liquid polymer called polyethylene glycol, or PEG, within 72 hours of suffering a spinal injury.

toward making these mental pictures come true.

I am a great believer in luck and the harder I work the more of it I have.

  • We all feed off Andreas' wonderful spirit.
    I would like to express my gratitude to Andreas for embodying and sharing this spirit, and also, most dearly to the other forum members for participating so generously in this process. I am deeply grateful that I can tune into this energy every day whether or not I am asking questions.
  • Re: The 5 Day Liver Detox - I am not thrilled by Tyler
    I have done four of Dr. Schulze's five day liver/gall bladder cleanses. I never felt poorly before doing any of them. I have always felt relatively well. When I have done them, I did not notice any stones passing, but each time, I felt greater mental clarity, my skin improved, minor headaches disappeared.

  • Ten Reasons Women Should Lift Weights
    Research has found that weight training can increase spinal bone mineral density (and enhance bone modeling) by 13 percent in six months. This, coupled with an adequate amount of dietary calcium, can be a women's best defense against osteoporosis.

    Star witness who criticized his agency's drug safety record contends he's under pressure to be 'exiled' to a different job.
  • Drug Safety Questioned
    In a sharp pivot, many medical authorities are questioning the fundamental safety guarantees for American drugs, threatening to dull the national appetite that has demanded and devoured pharmaceuticals at a faster clip for nearly a generation.
    "This building is on very shaky ground. Would I condemn it? No, but I would tell people, 'You go in at your own risk.'"
  • Pharmaceuticals considered generally UNSAFE by Jawg
    "Pharmaceuticals are potentially dangerous, and should be used only in extreme circumstances; they must ALL be considered dangerous because there is no disclosure of ANY dangers by the manufacturer"

Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel
about what you know.
