Care to share?

A short time ago an article was posted on DU about a 68-pound, 13 year-old boy with diabetes who died because he was treated with alternative medicines rather than insulin. This story was responded to by the anti-alternative medicine crowd on DU crowing about this boy’s death being further proof that alternative medicines are snake oil and the reason why people shouldn’t choose alternative therapies. The child’s death while using alternative medicine played into their righteous conventional-medicine-only stance, yet the fact that this was a 13 year-old boy who only weighed 68 pounds was ignored. The boy’s death may have been compounded by a lack of insulin, but he died from long-term parental neglect/abuse. How many healthy 13 year-old boys weigh only 68 pounds?

The healing process in conventional medicine is to take a pill to heal. Whereas, the healing process in alternative medicine is to balance the imbalance. I believe there is a use for conventional medicine and a use for alternative medicine, and their uses should be inclusive, not exclusive. However, I am not interested in debating alternative medicine with the anti-alternative medicine crowd who are on this site or any other site. What I am interested in is beginning and sustaining a conversation of like-minded alternative medicine users sharing their knowledge to improve one’s physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

To that end, how inclusive are alternative therapies in your life? Are alternative therapies your first choice of treatment? Do you incorporate energy work or other abilities into your protocols? What are your go-to remedies?

As for me, I was introduced to alternative medicine more than 15 years ago and it is my first, and usually the only therapy I use. Some of the dis-eases where I have successfully used only alternative therapies include treatment for sarcoid cancer (animals), Valley Fever (humans and animals), Hashimotos (humans), intestinal worms (animals), Head Shaking Syndrome (horses), laminitis and founder (horses), and broken bones (humans and animals). Over the years the energy work that I incorporate into my healing protocol has morphed into an empathic ability. My go-to alternative remedies are numerous and include liquid Maritime Pine Bark, Rescue Remedy, and colloidal silver at the top of my list.

My favorite thing about using alternative medicine is the ever-constant learning cycle. I hope that there are some on DU who will reply with their protocols so that we can all become better healers because IMHO the acceptance and use of alternative medicine is the connection that makes the respect for Mother Earth, alternative medicines, and spirituality inextricably bound.
