You should consider the the leaders in the alternative world such as Dr Andrew Weil, Dr Deepak Chopra, Dr Herbert Bensen (I studied under him @ Harvard) among many others. I get a magazine called "Spirituality & Healing" which points people to a new light on getting well, holistically. I have a private practice in Healing Touch & Nursing @ an alternative health center in my neighborhood, as it is in a Vitamin/herb shop. The owner really digs out the herbal remadies from other countries such as the Bahamas for clients who persue this. Graviola is a popular anti cancer, immune inhancing suppliment. check the website for more info...www.vitaminspluswellness.com
The son of a hematologist/oncologist works in the shop, because he wants to learn more about the alternatives. He speaks to his father about what he learns & at least there is a communication about the options. I believe that we as nurses owe it to the clients to give them choices, whether it be allopathic (western), eastern, native, a combination (my personal choice) or NO treatment at all, only pallitive. It should be their informed decision, without our judgement. okay---I am off that soap box now!
I wish you wellness & peace. It sounds like you are on the right path with the proper diet! I understand about the dietitians....at my hospital they send post MI's straight out of the cath lab, a diet of fried chicken fingers, or a white bread sandwich with chips!! I am not kidding. & there is no limitation on soda pop. If they want it, they can have it, (but not on my shift!)
Let me know how you fair in your persuit of healing. :kiss
