YO' sista' nutt !!!!!
the open mind thing ......
" I always keep an open mind ..... JUST
not SO open my brain falls out !!!! "
ever heard me say this B4 ?
I believe everyone on THIS Journey NEEDS to make it their own.
BUTT ... yeah you just knew there had to be one ....
sometimes the voices of experience should have their day
... AND the voices of newbies and seekers of a new paradigm .... should have their day
JMO ... IMO .... IME .... YMMV ....
been a western medicine trained vet for 36+ years
been a caregiver twice
been a Stage IVa CRC survivor pushing TEN years
have done ALL the surgeries and tests we talk about here ... as doc and patient !
I AM licensed in acupuncture and TCM herbal medicine
certified in surgical and therapeutic LASERS (= way cool ! BTW )
have access to all the top practitioners in alternative medicines
have moderated this forum (and others) for many years
have participated behind the scenes with AltMed trials and protocols with members here and elsewhere
research and learn, evaluate, assess and reassess EVERYTHING I encounter
BUTT ..... still chose proven "western" medical modalities for MY OWN TREATMENTS !
and I still mourn those who also chose traditional treatments : no longer here
also those who chose alternative methods, which ultimately caused them to avoid that which has saved my skanky ass ... so far,
and they are also NO LONGER HERE.
MY POINT =
I could have chosen any one of a number of "latest and greatest holistic anti-vaxxers"
I worked with them IN THEIR OWN CLINICS for years
I CHOOSE WISDOM over wishes
I choose experience over expectation
I choose results over rants
like I said ...... JUST IMO
..... and I am still here 10 years later to rant about this.
Sadly I have no AltMed friends here to celebrate with us all
in Harmony with ALL on the Journey
