It must have been you that mentioned the book "Herbal Antibiotics"? I ended up buying a used copy of that. I haven't had time to read it yet, but I will. I have no doubt in the power of herbs.
If I had my life to do all over again, I'd be a naturopathic doctor and try and bridge the medical communities. But alas.....too close to retirement and my "next life".
The suggestion about
the herbal ABX book has caused me to dig out my copy of "ADAPTOGENS: Herbs for Strength, Stamina and Stress relief" by David Winston & Steven Maimes. Have you ever looked into adaptogenic herbs?
I am wondering about
finding a suitable immunomodulator amongst them.......I am at a calm place in my disease at the moment and feel like laying out my plan now is important. I am looking at ashwagandha and eleuthro right now. I need to look into cross compatibility with several of these. Herbs work better in concert.......I have a lot to learn.
As far as medicine having too much stock in "treatments" and that being a better long term profit model. Ummm......yeah, of course it is. And now people have no ability to reap any benefits from any research. With all research being funded by the drug makers.....it can be VERY easy to come to "conspiracy theory mentality".
I don't think you are, and I am not either.
Just simply a person who believes in the creativity of Mother Nature to help us solve our current challenges. If you look deeply, all meds come from plants it seems.
In fact, my doctor just had a test run on me (and I had no idea either---I thought the test was simply to assure my compatibility to 6mp) and I received a bill from the hospital for $2900, my insurance company refused to pay for it.
It's called a Prometheus test and it distinguishes between UC and Crohn's. Why did I even take this? it was a week before I was to have a new scope and biopsies taken. I questioned her about
this at my follow up appt yesterday, too. She felt bad about
the price tag, but still.....
I looked into the company who created this test and lo and behold......they make IBD meds !
I am not saying it's shady for certain, but it did give me pause. The test showed a clear UC pattern......ok, I thought all the previous biopsies from other scopes have already done that!
Adaptogens book, here :
Another great book "ADAPTOGENS in Medical Herbalism Elite Herbs and Natural Compounds for Mastering Stress, Aging and Chronic Disease" by Donald R. Yance. I forgot I had this one, too! I have a really good feeling about
this......we may need to start a new thread Connor
