I am glad you responded because you are the other poster who has been making this claim. I might have been impressed with your study if it hadn't come from a medical journal. We all know the medical love to scare everyone with herbs.
No, actually I don't, because my doctor is one who believes in herbal treatments. I think maybe big pharma tries to turn us off from drugs, but not all medical people. Do you always over-generalize like this? Very judgmental of you.
I know your stand on herbs and this forum. I have read through many of your posts. You seem to be angry somehow that the weak herbal program that you were on did not work for you. That the herbs just made your condition worse. Do not think that others here are not reading other forums. You want to scare posters here from using herbs.
You are so full of bull hockey it's not even funny. I use herbs every single day. I do not want to scare people away, but I want to let them know that herbs don't necessarily cure everything, and that there are times when you need to step away from them and try something stronger. If you want to delude people into thinking that herbs are the end-all-and-be-all of all diseases, and give them false hope like Hulda Clark did, and ultimately have them get sicker or die, then go right ahead. My conscience is clear.
Quote "Risk of Death #
Thujone is a convulsant agent. Poisoning events involving wormwood are rare, but this may in part be due to the rareness of its use. Weisbord et al. (1997) report a case of nearly-fatal acute renal failure following the ingestion of 10 ml wormwood oil ordered over the internet. Erowid has received one report of a person who was hospitalized following ingestion of an entire bottle of wormwood essence. The amount of thujone consumed is not known in either case. Given the small number of reports of wormwood use, two known hospitalizations warrants extreme caution."
You should seriously do a little reasearch and you will discover how many people die each year from the side effects of taking drugs. The above is laughable. I will gladly take my chances with wormwood if there were only 2 hospitalizations. Of course they do not disclose how much wormwood was taken.
Erowid actually advocates the use of herbal drugs. That's what the entire site is about. Maybe you should do YOUR research, because he does his, and lays out both sides for everyone to see. YOU, however, just want to present one side as the absolute truth, and that is never wise. I also know that a lot of people die each year because they believe crackpots like YOU, and refuse to seek medical treatment when it is necessary. How many of those do you think Hulda Clark conned and killed? How many of them will you cause to die because you have convinced them that all doctors and pharmaceutical drugs are evil?
I am sorry to hear that you are so ill. You kind of sit on the natural/drug fence. Afraid to jump onto either side. That is your choice. But many of us here are getting well. You complained recently on another forum that everyone is ignoring you. Think about it.
"Those who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it." Ancient proverb
You're not sorry I'm sick. You are just afraid of my honesty. I'm not on a fence, I already ordered the drugs I need. There is a lot of conflicting evidence that I want to explore, though, and I want to be fully informed before I put ANYTHING into my body. Yes, I am disappointed in some treatments, and yes, I do think that some people can be deceptive when money is concerned, but like I said, I take herbs every day of my life, and have over 40 books on herbs. I don't really care of people on this forum or any other ignore me, especially not you. I don't have 20 years to work on getting well. I'm dying from not one, but two terminal diseases, so if I want answers now, that is my prerogative. YOU, in my opinion, are dangerous. People like YOU should be stopped, and YOU are the reason we are warned away from herbs, because YOU do not accept any other theory or any other treatments. YOU would rather see someone die than for them to actually get help from something other than herbs. YOU are sick, much sicker than I am.
Don't worry, this will be my last post on this or any other Curezonen forum. There is nothing more for me to learn here, because there are too many closed minds like YOURS.
