President Trump, like him or not, signed into action the “Right to Try” law. What does this mean for patients? It means that we no longer, as terminal patients, have to wait and die before unproven experimental treatments with the potential to help us are approved by the FDA and we are allowed to try them.
To be frank, I’m somewhat on the fence over this new law. Though it means if I am going to die from my disease, to which point I will argue I was slowly, I can choose for myself whether or not I try a treatment. But it also means that I now am one of the volunteer guinea pigs allowing a for-profit company to pump chemicals derived from who knows what sources into my body and wait to see what happens.
As you might be able to tell, I’m not a huge fan of the Big Pharma. I believe the true healing comes from the Farm in the form of natural medicine through the foods we eat, both plant and animal as well as the plant-based supplements and extracts we consume. Our bodies require trace elements, minerals, and vitamins to developed and heal that can only be absorbed through organic means. Notably, many of the supplements sold at cost-effective prices are either synthetically derived or are simply crushed mineral deposits otherwise know as rocks processed with industrial chemicals.
One ought to note the following list is not complete and new analogs are being developed all the time. Also, the term isolate means that if the word food is not near the name of the substance, it is an isolate, normally crystalline in structure, and is not the same as the true vitamin found in the food.

So, I ask you with the new knowledge that you’re being encouraged by the experts, who are just looking out for your wellbeing, to purchase a box of rocks doused in industrial chemicals to ingest to be healthier… Would you choose to try the experts recommended experimental treatment therapies of Medicine or would you try the unstudied alternative treatment practices and plant-based supplements utilized for hundreds of years with thousands of patients’ testimonies to the healing power of the practiced medicinal art of Homeopathy? One or the other might heal you or kill you but you’re already dying slowly under the supervision of a physician.
Me? I choose to go the latter of the two because at the height of my modern-medical treatments I was at the height of my pain level and was rated permanently and totally disabled by an independent physician other than those treating me at the time. Something had to change and it wasn’t me undergoing the care plan set in place by mainstream medicine, therefore, I chose to walk a different path.
My diagnosis was based upon an outline of the strictest documentable criteria for the disease, the 2003 Budapest criteria for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Today, I doubt would I even come close to receiving the same diagnosis because I no longer present with many of the symptoms required for diagnosis.
What I did is this, I addressed my symptoms by addressing the underlying causes through unpopular methods or green nontoxic alternatives, natural foods and a positive state of mind. How? Admittedly the same way doctors discover if a treatment works, I just started trying things I’d read about.
I began following this Lady, Erin Elisabeth, because the things I’ve researched and read about, thought about, and wondered about align very much with her theories and approach though I don’t necessarily agree with everything she says.
Like Erin, I myself started down the road of recovery privately and like she did I found a level of improvement no doctor offered me. As time passed I found I couldn’t keep the information to myself because the improvements were real and long-lasting.
In trying to regain all that had been lost to this neurodegenerative disease I have found that I, though intelligent, was ignorant to the ways of the food and medical industries. I truly thought there was a level of integrity innate to individuals in these chosen careers only to find the vast majority are in it because of the excellent and lucrative business models that both practicing medicine and filling those scripts provide.
