It is there for all Colon Club readers and adminstrators.
My wife's treatment is based on a degree of personalization and stratification. Its somewhat more like a system of navigation and exploration on an advanced sailing vessel 250 years ago. Despite many unknowns, you can steer decisively; explore somewhat predictively, with many remaining unknowns even potentially disastrous ones, by one or a series of measurements, based on prior knowledge.
Crude trials, without much stratification, are like many passenger ships being set adrift at some point in the oceans, like little rubber duckies, to measure ocean currents, watching to see which ones come home. It's scientific, but "no thanks", not with my boat.
I do accept and use trials results, even dissect them with other skills, accumulate information, and design from them. I can run many small trials and experiments, and navigate. Formal medicine is purblind about the other "sailing" skills and inefficient in its methods. A better trial would be to see whether a skilled captain could predictively "bat 900 or a 1000" on a certain high risk route, where 7 of 8 ships never come back, and then analyze the voyage logs. None of this adrift business...
Medicine is hard of hearing, only groups like this might change or mildly challenge its premises. To varying degrees, we can create the information exchanges necessary to DIY much of it better than "standard" even without their participation.[/quote]
I agree with you completely! Your pearls are welcomed by me and many others.
