Alternative and Complimentary Medicine
I started looking into
complementary and alternative
medicine (CAM) after traveling through Asia
marveling at the success with which folks were healed using healing
entirely foreign to the methods I learned in medical school.
I was spurred on by
age 62 of a heart
attack. He took all the pills his
cardiologist gave him and pretty much watched his fat intake. He
died hardly knowing his
grandchildren. We now know that the
low-fat diet, high carbohydrate diet promoted by the American Heart
may not be all that healthy for a lot of us. Moreover, there have
been serious reactions to the
drugs such as Lipitor and Mevacor, etc, including death. Healing
my own hypertension and high cholesterol
came through the CAM strategy of healing.
I never required the Statins or other drugs
to bring my cholesterol and hypertension to normal.
mother died of ovarian cancer and I realized you
knock out the immune system with chemotherapy and then expect the body
the cancer. It has been a long road from
her unnecessarily difficult death to a new understanding of healing
real reward for me, in complementary and
medicine comes when my cardiac patient tells me he now has the energy
his lawn after only being able to walk to the mailbox before we started
together…when my patient hugs me because her fibromyalgia and arthritis
symptoms have been relieved through CAM strategy…when my diabetic
me of his ulcers healing on his leg after chelation treatment…when my
post-menopausal patient is smiling, happy and energetic after natural
balancing…when my obese patient gets back into a size 6 dress…when my
loss patient begins remembering again.
are just some of the reasons I am so gratified
complementary and alternative medicine. I invite you to join our
family and start to change
