The problem with people that try to go into med free remissions is that they don't address the root cause, which is often a bacterial and fungal component in the gut. I was guilty of the same mistake and paid the price.
If you go back 2000 years and study the history of medicine, they did
treat the gut as the root cause. Documentation shows Hippocrates treated his patients with a variety of techniques that supported and strengthened the immune system. The contrary is true today - nothing good comes from suppressing the immune system, as seen by the strong adverse effect profile of biologics, immunosuppresants and steroids. The immune system needs to be bolstered, not wasted away - inflammation is a healthy
response to an unhealthy process going on in the body. Newsflash, it's happening for a reason and it's not going away unless it's addressed.
Hippocrates somehow knew that bacteria and pathogens played a role and used whey and raw milk in his treatments (which was actually safe at his time). Only now are we realizing that lactoferrin, a component of whey, is essential for combating bad bugs. He KNEW this because of observation - he never violated the principles of cause and effect. He never had anything to gain from it - no big bucks, nothing.
Today, we are entering the dark ages of medicine when you look at all the statistics. Mainstream medicine can no longer be called science. It's been distorted and manipulated for financial gain. There's some level of manipulation in all of the published studies. They don't utilize proper controls; they use populations that are not representative of the people that actually end up taking the drug; they come up with bogus guidelines that would put kids, even with healthy levels of cholesterol, on statin drugs.
How many lives were squandered by vioxx? More than 60,000 people died miserable deaths for absolutely nothing. Big Pharma and the FDA have a lot of blood on their hands and it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
