Easilly wrote, it seemed from his observation of the comments, those who try alternatives in addition to or replacing the mainstream meds, seem to have some more good days than those who don't try any alternatives. For me that is true. I have more good days by trying alternatives. In fact, I have been thinking about my experience that I have created a new phrase that I now use more often. It is..., (YOU CAN LEAVE THE VOLUME UP BECAUSE IT IS FOR ANYONE TO HEAR.)
ONE GOOD DAY IS BETTER THAN ONE BAD DAY.
Placebo or no Placebo who cares? From my view, I always wonder if those who want to discredit a treatment without trying it, aren't, instead, throwing out roadblocks that they can point to, and hide their fear of trying something new.
I am guessing many of the B-1ers have tried at least 5 other alternatives. Each time you might have been rewarded with at least one good day more than you would have had without trying. Placebo? Who gives a... er let me say, who cares? Can I repeat my motto for you? ONE GOOD DAY IS BETTER THAN ONE BAD DAY.
If one wants to examine this a little deeper, I will bet that, generally, the people who try the new alternatives are the same people who create opportunities for the rest of their life. They are the problem solvers of the world. They create businesses, invent things and are comfortable being uncomfortable. I call these people the problem solvers. They do have one huge problem for society to deal with, they don't like to follow the rules. It is amazing, though, how many will follow the lead of a problem solver going places they would never go alone.
Problem solvers of this community we must unite. There are those who like someone else to be in the lead. If not for us they would miss this life-changing opportunity. They need us.
Just think about this for a moment. We are, possibly, at the crossroads of life. What we do here today will have a positive effect on this world 100 years from now. Let's face it. What other events are you putting on your 100-year calendar. If you tell me that you won't be alive in 100 years, so what is the point? I would answer, "Don't be ridiculous, this is not about you, it is about, what can you leave behind that is so significant that 100 years from now, someone, somewhere who doesn't even know your name has a better life because of something you did today. I believe the B-1 treatment program qualifies as one of those causes. What a great time to have this disease and help change many lives, for the good, over the next 100 years.
I apologize to those who think I have lost my mind and to those that, at this time in your life, this subject is too much to think about.
If I become silent, in this community, it might mean that I answered the knock on the door. The people rushed in and wanted me to put a silly looking robe on that had the arm sleeves permanently sowed to the back.
Think about what I said. I trust it will energize you.
