I came across this blogpost from a woman with breast cancer. She discusses the cancer that most people blame the patient, lung cancer and how very often unfair this was. But then she talked about her own cancer, and about people who seemed to know everything about how to cure it. I thought this has a relevance for our disease. http://kirstyriceonline.com/2015/09/you-deserved-to-get-cancer.html Here is an extract: I have been on this forum for 6 years now. Most if not all are still sick. It amazes me sometimes to read the advice that is given here on this forum. How quitting sugar will make a difference. How dairy is so evil even if you are not lactose intolerant. How gluten is bad for you. How you should eat bone broth nothing else. How methylation is the answer. How liver detox will make you better. (Ask a gastro-enterologist about liver detox).How chelation and removing amalgams will cure them. How XYZ supplement can help ABC. Then there is fasting. Sigh. Some will actually advocate for patients to leave their home and belongings behind, and to go live in the desert or XYZ place which is mold free. (Can you imagine the hardship of a sick patient with very little money on hand giving away their belonging and suddenly become homeless?)- it's not that simple. Those who give such advice may not realize that having a roof over your head means some level of security. Living in a tent can prove very difficult for some and what if bad luck happens, like the car break down, or the patient cannot even get back up from sleeping on the ground? What if the patient develop pneumonia? Miracle cures do not exist. By all mean, I encourage people to have a diverse diet, and eat food that does not cause an allergic reaction in their body. But what we need is biomedical research. We need evidence that a certain treatment works or not. Please help! Governments need to fund biomedical research. Our experts deserve support and funding.
