Even though I am schooled in allopathic medicine, what I believe has helped me the most was applied kinesiology testing of any substance that was going into my body, by a skilled practitioner. I agree that supplements, herbals, vitamins and the like can be just as dangerous as meds. But IV pharmaceuticals are absolutely the worst thing you can do, imho. I lucked out and found someone who was accurate in finding out what was making me sicker and what was making me better and have acted accordingly since. For instance, common knowledge is that Vit D is a wonderful supplement that will cure all of your ills. Quite the contrary for me. It was literally making me much, much sicker. I was muscle-tested on it and of course was weak for it. Without kinesiology I would have never known this and probably would have kept taking it thinking, I was "herxing" or some such nonsense.
