Recently I was reading on another thread about some guy's claim he was an Alien scientist and was going to teach the Earthlings how to ascend. As
always, some of the poster's were eating this up and his info was all new age dogma.
Anyway, there was a member that was in obvious physical pain and mentioned it in a post. Well, The ET guru told them to drink St. John's Wort tea
and do yoga.
While this may have seemed to be a safe answer for the OP, and remain being "cool" with his teachings, It can and could be disastrous.
Without actually seeing someone in person and making a medical diagnosis, is haphazard at best. Doing this over the internet is never cool and could
even be dangerous. Not to mention what could happen to the OP or the website for false information if bad medical advice was followed.
What if someone gave up their medical treatment or medications for one of these new age cures and went south or even worse. If it was one of my family
members and I found out it came from a non medical website, guess what would happen?
Let's face facts. Most people raise good questions, have good answers, do good research, give good facts, etc. But there are some that take all
written words as if they actual came from the bible or whatever it is they believe in.
Some might be in such pain that they might try anything someone suggest if it sounds legit to them, without consulting their doctor's opinion first.
How can you make a diagnosis without a medical history containing allergies, past treatments,and medications?
I'm not saying that we should not discuss medical problems,treatments,cures,and remedies. Just please, Don't state as fact a medical diagnosis or
cure without a disclaimer or second opinion clause thrown in.
If there is one area where we all need to agree on while exchanging ideas and info, It should be everyone's good health.
