What do we do for those for whom it works?
My mother was in a wheelchair caused by psoriatic arthritis. She was told after 20 years of failed treatments that she would never walk again, and she was literally left to waste away in a wheelchair and die. She turned to homeopathy, and now 10 years later, and double the weight she was in the wheelchair, walks several miles per day and is quite energetic and well known on the car-boot scene.
I was diagnosed at 13 with an undefined skin disease. From 13 to 21 I was passed from doctor to specialist to doctor. Was filled to the brim with antibiotics and the most expensive and powerful drugs I could be prescribed on the NHS. I even went private which cost my parents a fortune. At 22 I was told that there was nothing more that could be done. I turned to Homeopathy. I'm now 40, and the only sign of a skin disease left on my body is a 1 inch square spot of psoriasis on my thigh, and a white patch of hair, about an inch square on my head.
Now in these instances, I ask non-believers what they think people in my mother's and my case should do. Should we simply accept modern sciences proclamation that there nothing more that can be done, admit defeat and wait to die, or do we go out looking for alternatives. Please provide me with your insight on what your prescription should be. What should we have done?
To me it's simple. I'll start to believe modern science, when they perform alternative medicine research, using subjects for whom all other medical treatments have been exhausted.
