EOM, how old are you?
I have been around a long time..I have seen so many "Miracle" cures promoted you would not believe it. My father in law did the Shark cartlage, coffee enemas, every natural vit and herb they recommended for cancer and he still died when they said he would. He had prostate cancer that spread to his bones. The witnesses and his JW wife put him through all kinds of torture..one time he thought he had gallstones, which he probably didn't, and a chiropractor (another JW) gave him straight veggie oil (a lot) to drink and some pills..he threw up and had /diaharrea for 24 hours ..all this while he was in severe pain from the bone cancer..
My sister in law, the one that highly recommended Noni juice, took natural herbs for her IBS, again recommended by a JW. She ended up with an acute infection that wouldn't heal and now has a permanent bag.
Another witness swore by vitamin E. She couldn't take enough of it..she later had a heart attack and died . Her son, in his 30's took all the vitamins she recommended and still died from cancer...
My MIL highly recommended "The healing light" for hubby when he had a bad infection one time. He got so sick he finally went to the doc and got a shot. He was better in two days.
Now my hubby's grandma(non-JW) on the other hand knew a lot of home remedies as she was from an indian tribe. And yet she couldn't save her JW hubby when he got lukemia..nor herself when her hip fractured.
When I was working a gal had a father with heart trouble. He was on a lot of meds. His grown daughter decided he was getting messed up from all the pills so she got him all the "Natural stuff". He went off his Meds and tried it her way. He shortly ended up in ER with so much fulid in his system he couldnl't breath.
I also remember when they said that pumpkin seeds had all kinds of healing powers..and vit c and grapefruit juice and the list goes on........................
Now I do believe some things are beneficial to your health. Like Fish oil, Vit D and calcium..a lot of herbs are even good for you. But I wouldn't ever believe that just one of them would cure anything. It takes a mixture of our basic food groups and a healthy lifestyle and most often good genes to make us healthy enough to fight off diseases....not a bunch of seeds..
Mankind has made some wonderful advances in "cures" for a lot of diseases..course sometimes the cure is worse than the disease...
