[MOL] A meeting tonight..

My head is spinning a little because of a meeting that I attended tonight.  The speaker was an internal medicine doctor and the program was on herbs and tincture extracts for healing..
I only had a moment to talk with him as after he was finished many people were lined up to talk with him, but I do think that I will make an appointment and go in to see him and see what he recommends..
He had some really good points...  such as that we should all get life from live...  plants etc..  He told how many herbs used to make the products sold in health food stores are imported in from other countries and they come in bales..  When they get to the U.S., the government orders them sprayed with chemicals and then they are used in the natural products we are buying...  I found that unsettling...  I for one am trying to get away from chemicals and toxins.. 
 He said that in 1935 before we were using pesticides/chemical fertilizers the U.S. had 10-15% loss of crops due to insect damage..  In 1993 it was 18%, so they are not doing what they were to do and are filling us with toxic poison..
He said that many of the prescriptions are made with a petroleum base which is toxic as well..  Now, he is an Internist and he does the nutrition on the side...  When I asked him about cancer, he said that one or two tinctures were not the answer.. He said that first I would need to detox my system with distilled water and herbs..  He also said that he could do a blood test and tell from that if a person was going to get cancer and/or if it was going to come back...  He said that he monitors his cancer patients this way, by taking a drop of blood at each visit...
I think it is worth going to see what he says on a one on one basis...  Afterall, I am taking a bunch of herbs, vitamins and minerals now and juicing...  I know what the tinctures cost and it would probably save me money each month over what I am doing now...
I don't know, but I just thought I would throw this out on the mol and see if anyone else has ever come across a doctor who truly studies and prescribes holistically???   Thanks, Carla
