Morning Everyone! (well it is down under)
This may not be appreciated by some but I feel the need to speak up for Graham and Pat is it helenann? Graham has been writing posts telling us about his lovely wife Pat and how very close to death she was with emphysema. He has also said how he started giving her Vit A and believes it is the Vit A that has given her so much more quality of life. He has taken the time to copy and paste articles on the subject. He did in his enthusiasm and belief use the word "cure" which some I think jumped on. (Just be careful with that one Graham) that little word can bring on in your case undeserved ridicule.
Perhaps it should be kept in mind that Graham as far as we know is not peddling Vit A at incredibly inflated prices......he has nothing to gain. This is how Graham strikes me. I think its fair to say he found himself in a horrible situation when the love of his life was in ICU with not much hope. Well meaning traditional medicine doctors had not a lot to offer in the way of treatment or hope. So Graham started researching. He believed in what he found regarding the use of Vit A , started using it and has seen many benefits. Then he comes along here and shares his experience. Isn't that what this type of forum is for amongst other things.
Many of us read it and think gee I think I might try that. Some tell him off in tone if not actual words for giving people false hope or daring to suggest people on this forum try something that might harm them.
If you are a nice, decent, human being and you or someone you love has experienced less suffering and a better quality of life due to trying an alternative treatment you are going to share that experience with others who have the same condition.
I have first hand experience of a similar situation. Twelve years ago my wonderful brother had terminal cancer and was given a few months to live. We took him for second and third opinions. The only offering from traditional medicine was pallative care. He thought no one is going to tell me when I'm going to die and went home and researched what he might possibly take to help himself. He chose what he believed in and for him it worked. We keep in mind that what works for one may not work for others. But as Graham has done here my brother will share with anyone who asks and would like to know what he took.
I haven't been a member here very long but there are those you instinctively know you would love to share a drink and a chat with, have a laugh, take a stroll and then some who you would love to give a kiss and a big hug. Indeed many caring, loving, warm people. So lets keep that in mind and show a little kindness by seeing the big picture when someone because of their experience feels the need to share in the hope that what worked for them might work for someone else!
