    Excellent post. I’ve recently become enthusiastic about alternative medicine/home treatments after getting misdiagnosed by my GP for a potentially life-threatening condition. I think more and mor folks are beginning to wake up and recognize that the healthcare establishment does not have our best interests at heart, and they need to take responsibility for their own well being, because nobody else is going to. Sadly, mainstream media continues to label anyone who talks about organic therapy/alternative medicine as a “quack” or a “charlatan” like this article from NBC news: . It really is nothing more than a hit-piece. We need some sincere reporting about the success rate of alternative medicine, it is about time.
