MMM -- I didn't name anyone in my post, and I think you understand enough about what I was talking about not to take offense. Certainly me demanding that others have official diagnoses before they post here is absurd, and implying that that is what I meant is overreactive.
I did not say what I did to censor anyone, or somehow to prevent posts...or, "take something away." Again, I'm surprised that you are implying that this was my intent. If anything, what I discussed should be more helpful if there is an attempt to categorize where one's symptoms may be coming from, and then evaluating what type of homeopathic method addresses that issue.
Please don't make me out to be some sort of bad guy. Yes, all are welcome here.
Yes, hope is a precious commodity. Unfortunately, with the present state of medical technology, and my individual condition and sensitivity to meds, there is no hope. I have tried and/or investigated all the homeopathic cures, with no success.
I am happy for those who have experienced relief by using homeopathic methods. Nowhere have I said that they are not helpful for all. I only take issue with unsubstantiated claims of curing one's GERD.
If it is true, then I will be first in line. (Can the involuntary muscle really be restored to full function?) Just don't try to sell false hopes with incomplete information, as that is worse than no hope at all. Perhaps my cautions aren't needed here on this messageboard, although I sympathize with those who are like I was years ago, with no voice or advocate. Maybe it's better for all, myself included, if I stop coming here.
