In Response To: Re: As a veterinarian.... (Pete G.)
Nobody has a corner on the health care market. While I do respect the efforts of health care professionals and scientists, I have this unscientific hunch lurking in the back of my head that keeps telling me that ingesting one chemical to overcome an illness simply requires that you take another chemical, etc. -- until you're eventually nothing more than a walking test tube, waiting for an unfortunate encounter with the proverbial Bunsen Burner. While I may be there eventually, I want that to be the absolute last resort for me.
So wholistic medicine does interest me. My wife is from a country that is considered by many to be third world and has introduced me to several home-brew remedies for ailments and etc. that are simply amazing. She also does everything to and for our dog that "The Book" says not to do. Her "old" Dzaki -- who received the same type of care -- died a couple of years ago at the age of 16, and the "new" Dzaki is four years old and going strong (the vet is always amazed at how healthy she is).
I also think that a lot of the illness we have comes from our thought processes and have thought this way since I was seven years old (1965, for those counting). Everyone in my second grade class came down with a case of mumps. For some reason, I was absolutely determined that I was NOT going to get sick with mumps. The thought absolutely dominated my thinking for weeks. And as you can guess, there was one person in my class that did not get sick...
I, too, am a certified professional in my field (computer security) -- and I know that in my profession, the more I know, the more I realize that I need to learn. I think the same can be said about every profession, including medicine. We don't know everything and we never will. Furthermore, what works best may seem to defy common sense, logic, and scientific study. And while I always try to listen, my listening does not imply that I will implement what I hear (which is why some people still don't run firewalls and anti-virus software on their computers... but I digress).
I'm glad that we have both modern medicine and alternatives, and I'm glad that I have the right to choose.
And to end it on a lighter note, one of my favorite sayings goes something like this: The Ark was built by amateurs; professionals built the Titanic. Which one stayed afloat?
Thanks for listening,
P.S. -- Please keep in mind that this post is nothing more than my personal opinion. PLEASE do not mistake this for advice and PLEASE do not implement my advice simply because of what I say. You must make your own informed decision regarding your health care after consultation with the proper people.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
