Amanda, I think you found what you were looking for. I suspect you are right, your hubby is in denial and looking for an answer that will make this a quick cure. I agree you could get this severe episode under control with the meds and at the same time research the natural remedies and once you know what your would like to do, discuss it with your hubby so he understands the big picture.
You have a very good head on your shoulders and you are being a wonderful advocate for yourself. Keep it up and I am cheering you on.
Oh yes, I would call 911 if I was having a heart attack.
When anyone tries to tell me how to deal with or treat my disease, I simply say "it's my disease and my body." Your hubby is stepping in where he does not belong. No one has any business telling anyone what is best for them and their health.
There are a number of so called "natural" remedies for various conditions that have some merit IN CONJUNCTION WITH modern scientific treatments, not in place of them. It might be instructive to remember that penicillin is "natural" in that it is derived from bread molds . . . but it took modern science, using clinical trials and all the other things that go with science, to determine that and to refine the drug into one that has probably saved hundreds of millions of lives in the past 60-plus years.
