    It's kind of curious that your sister would rather trust in the big bad man made scientific medicine over the natural 'god-made' medicine.

    Well, not so much curious as typical...

    Homeopathy was developed in the 1700’s as a kinder, gentler type of treatment than those in popular use at the time. Homeopathy is based on the principle that “like cures like” and on the minimum-dose theory. Homeopathic remedies are prepared by repeatedly diluting a healing agent—at times, diluting it so much that not even one molecule of the original material remains.

    Nonetheless, when compared with the use of a placebo, homeopathic remedies were found to have some effect in treating such things as asthma, allergies, and childhood diarrhea. Homeopathic products are considered quite safe, since they are so diluted. An article published in the March 4, 1998, issue of JAMA observed: “For many patients suffering from chronic problems that lack a specific diagnosis, homeopathy may be an important and useful treatment option. If used within its limits, homeopathy could complement modern medicine as, ‘another tool in the bag.’” In potentially life-threatening emergencies, however, it may be wiser to use more conventional medical treatments.

    Quote that to your anti-H rellies and challenge them to find a WT article to justify their phobia.

    Sorry to hear about your grandmother, Breck. Times like this are hard enough without the stress of JW family drama to make it worse. My family was fractured over a JW vs everybody else during passing of a family member. It was terrible. But I learned to act thoughtfully with my intentions in tact through it all, and things ended up relatively well.

    I think you will have a flood of memories, some good some not so good during your visit, concentrate on the good. You are in a great place in your life, with loving support of those around you now.

    Oh, and I suggest taking a few swigs of something delicious before any family visit, which I'm sure you know already.

    You've been given great advice, so nothing to add except to say I hope you have a safe trip and you get to spend some memorable time with your grandma.

    I hope you're afforded a peaceful goodbye to your grandma and that she has a peaceful passing.
