Snake Oil

I’m not one for Speaking Against Treatments for Chronic Illness. I don’t find it helpful to speak in Negatives at all these days if I’m honest. The way I see it is that One Person’s Cure is Another Person’s Snake Oil. I personally have seen people make massive progress trying things that did not work for me in the slightest. I find that amazing, and just further proof that there is so much about the Human Body and Mind that cannot be explained.

I will say this though. I tried a lot of different things on my own Journey to Wellness. A. Lot. Bloody Loads. And whilst I will never discourage anyone from trying to step into their Own Power and be Their Own Cure, let me leave you with a few things to (gently) bear in mind:

  • Be slightly wary of those that offer you 100% chance of Wellness. (I’m a self-confessed Polly-Anna but even I resent this one-only because it is usually followed by…)
  • If the aforementioned patented 100% absolutely totally guaranteed Treatment did (shock horror) fail to work in your case, it is down to you and your inability to follow the treatment properly, or you are too sick, or you did not say a special prayer as you did it. This cr*p really gets to me-like you aren’t feeling bad enough already…
  • When the treatment comes with the Caveat that if you do not start it RIGHT NOW THIS VERY SECOND and dismiss every other treatment IMMEDIATELY then a)Your head will fall off. b) Your hamster will die. c) You will be sick FOREVER. I mean, seriously. You are sick not stupid. If you stayed alive long enough to read up on this treatment it’s safe to assume you will live to see the day out without it. No one ever got better through fear.
  • When it costs BLOODY LOADS. No treatment that costs Thousands of £’s is total kosher in my opinion. I have found the most effective of treatments are devised by those who have been there themselves. These people want you to get well. They don’t want to make lots of money off vulnerable people. Do your homework. If you can’t and you don’t have the energy to research at length on-line then ask someone you trust to do it for you.
That’ll do for now I reckon. I hope it’s helped.
