The quality of medical care and the degree to which it serves the many
differnet expectations (not only medical) that the public have of it
certainly can vary widely. Nevertheless it does not make sense to hold
alternative medicine to *lower* standards of ethical and scientific
I agree. I certainly don't have any higher or lower expectations of
either. I judge based on my own personal experience. For example,
about 7 or 8 years ago I developed 2 very hard lumps on the backs of my
hands. I was concerned so I went to see a medical specialist. They
took x-rays and told me what they were (I don't remember the name now,
but basically they were deposits of minerals that were forming on
bone.) The doctor gave me 2 options. I could live with them, and they
night continue to get larger, or I could have them cut my hands open
and chisel them off. I opted to live with them. A couple of years
later, and with the lumps still there, I started visiting a
Chiropractor who happened use nutrition along with his practice. I
started following his recommendations for a generally healthier body
and within 3 months, the lumps were gone. It wasn't an expected
outcome of the dietary change, but they were gone nonetheless.
Of course I admit that there's still a chance it could have been
coincidental, but over the past 6 years now, every problem I've gone to
this chiropractor about has been resolved without drugs or surgery.
I've had no need for a medical doctor during that time.
Additionally, I've helped more people than I can count get off of
statin drugs. In *every single case* the doctors will test their
cholesterol levels, assume they're still on the statin and prescribe
more. When the patients tell the doctors they haven't been taking the
statin for months, the doctors shrug and that's the end of the story.
*Every single time.* If these doctors wanted to gain respect, I
believe a few questions might be in order. Something along the lines
of "What have you changed to get these results?" Of course a tougher
question would be "You're eating MORE cholesterol? That's not what I
learned. Why are you getting results different from what I know?"
I applaud your willingness to be here among the "regular people." I
believe there's much I can learn from you, so I will be reading your
posts very carefully. I will endeavor to provide you with the
documentation you're looking for, but I can't promise it even exists.
Dr. Lee started his company in 1929, so there's been a lot of time for
documentation to get lost.
