I put my Lupus into complete remission over ten years ago using a healthy diet and supplements. I based this on a book written by an MD who became frustrated trying to treat Lupus with the only other alternative, steroids. I have never looked back and I don't take steroids.
My mother "had" chronic serum hepatitis and the doctors said she was dying, she started taking supplements, specifacally formulated for healing the liver and immune system. Her doctor laughed at her and said it won't kill you... well, it not only didn't kill her, she got better. When their drugs had not helped at all, resulting in withdrawal of the drugs and telling her they had done all they could and she was dying. When she started improving they did a new liver biopsy and the doctor came into her room and asked what book she read, her liver had totally regenerated. That was 30 years ago. She is still alive and she has never relapsed.
So... Dick Durbin can take a leap off the nearest bridge IMO....
Countless poor souls have died as the result of eschewing known, safe and effective treatments in favor of "holistic," "alternative," "natural" cures. (I'm still waiting for an answer to: what does "support" mean in, "supports prostate health.")
Thsillyn has worked wonders for liver function for hubby following serious SERIOUS surgery.
