Thanks for your responses, everyone!
Yes, I totally understand about quack diets and "miracle cures" and all that -- no worries, I'm not about to do anything crazy! But, from my
perspective, try to understand what it's like to have your entire decade of twenties and now thirties almost totally robbed from you, at the very
least completely altered. Then, you go to nationally and world-renowned specialists all over the country, only to be told, "Sorry, there's nothing
we can do." Of course you get a bit desperate, and you start looking for all the alternatives, y'know?
On another note, I am a first-generation American, as my family is made of recent immigrants (all legal, in case it matters to you...) So my
upbringing may be a bit different than others who've been in the country longer. One of the things my family has always discussed is more of a
reliance on natural products, both regular food (I was raised to cook everything from scratch for better health) as well as the notion that you can
find a cure for everything within nature (however, finding it may often be a bit of a problem, if it's an uncommon ailment...) So that's a large
basis between my adamance on this notion.
As for ghosts, my feeling has always been that there are many things in this world that we do not understand -- take, for instance, the percentage of
dark matter vs. light! I really think that we're flattering ourselves if we think we've got it all figured out. Until we have definite proof there
are no ghosts or related things, we can't rule the possibility out.
