About Me: Male, Taipei, Taiwan, member since May 2007
Have been studing alternative medicines and therapies for about nine years. Am quite knowledgable about many issues in the body and discomforts that people may feel. I may also know the reason. Battling numerous health issues myself, I have learned not to trust what
[More] doctors tell me entirely, but rather to listen, then do my own research and try to find alternative solutions to taking any medications that may be prescribed. Medications often only make the situation worse or cause other problems in our bodies. Eating the right kinds of foods, drinking enough good water, eliminating stress, doing exercise, and not smoking, are key factors in which we can maintain our bodies longer without getting sick. They are also things we CAN do if we have the right motivation and thinking. Doctors are outstanding people, but sometimes they cannot find the root cause of the problems and infact are only treating symptoms rather than the root cause of our problems. Living in Taiwan over the years has also allowed me to research threapies such as acupuncture, herbal medcine, massage, Reiki, and other treatments.
Why am I on the forums, well I want to help others. Doctors do not always have the answers, and some doctors are just plain wrong. I respect doctors and people in the medical field very much, but sometimes they do not know everything and sometimes they think they know, but actually they might not. I have seen many on this board that give great answers, and are thorough. And then there are those who give one or two word answers and blame or criticize the poster which I think is absurd and rude. I usaully try to take the time to write a useful reply, regardless if I am write or wrong I will give you the information I know, read or have heard first hand. There needs to be more compassion and explanation in this world rather than a one or two word answer from those with tons of yellow stars who give mediocure answers. Tons of yellow stars to me for these folks is a joke, and those who give them to them make me wonder.. I won't say this for every single one of them are like this, but there are some. Most people on the boards are respectful and nice, but there are a few who just think they are the only ones who are right and everyone else who has a different opinion is wrong. Hmmmm.. God help us all..
