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
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,
