In Response To: Re:That is true (Renee)
I was just stating that I respect allopaths training in regard to trauma, and also, some critical, life threatening illnesses.My family uses the services of several different types of doctors (fortunately, not too often). A couple of years ago. I had a sudden bout with kidney stones. The pain was extreme, and X-rays showed stones that were too large to pass naturally. In the old days, surgery would have been the only option, but now they can blast the stones into little pieces using shock waves without cutting into the body. I was grateful for the availability of this treatment, and the pain drugs that helped ease the discomfort until the little pieces passed. I have noticed that many people criticize the allopaths (myself included), but when the going gets really rough, they are the ones these people turn to. Now, a naturopath may have been able to tell me how to avoid kidney stones, and how not to get them in the future, but the allopath was the only one who could get me out of a serious situation. Renee, your statements really don't have me as fired up as this post may indicate. I'm just killing a little time until the plummer arrives. I've also had experiences where the allopaths blew it completely and wasted my time and money. I'd tell you about that, but I hear a truck coming up the driveway.
