Was up till 3AM trying to correct some html stuff on one of my personal blogs and I am sure mighty tired but just read Peter's entry and chuckled.
You said "Wouldn't the patient have been better off getting a new sweater or some slacks rather than to be left with a photostat of some normal lab values". What a wonderful memory of your last conference in Tempe, Arizona almost 2 yrs ago when I mentioned that Jeffrey Bland suggested that I take the Great Smokey's Test for the folic acid SNP(I was worried as 3 of the listed points for the folic acid SNP were ME) and you said, 'Hey Myrna, get the foic acid supplement for $8, and go buy yourself a sweater for $192". Not sure exactly about the exact amount in dollars but you get the point.
It was funny to hear you say it here again but it sure made me grin. I took your advice and restricted my addiction to know every detail of the what and why of Myrna.
Tonight I went to a 3 hour homeopathy lecture. Dr A.U Ramakrishnan spoke about the homeopathic approach to cancer. Difficult to keep me away but I only lasted for half of it. It took such concentration as I was in the back row and had to strain to hear the speaker who didn't project his voice on top of having a thick accent.
But, what brilliance. I kept daydreaming in between focusing on every word thinking how wonderful it would have been if Peter D had been there brainstorming and debating the subject. Up the ante is my mantra. After all, cancer is Peter's specialty. What stuck out most is how Dr Ramakrishnan stated boldly, atleast 5 times, that he always suggests that if a patient has a breast tumor in stage 1 or 2, they must have surgery before he treats them with homeopathy.
There seems to be a concensus to get rid of the cancer first and then work to change the patient's inner and outer environment.
Ramakrishnan also said that it is not as clear cut as some people think. Healthy people get cancer. People who are not stressed get cancer. Country people get cancer. Non smokers get lung cancer and the examples went on to show that no matter how 'well' peoole live or state of mind they are in, many still get cancer.
Am I trying to make a point here? It certainly is thought provoking.
