  • The pressure to conform is enormous. Many clients come saying I want to come off my orthodox medicines yet when push comes to shove they are reticent to take charge of their health and go against the doctors orders. They wait for a doctor to take them off ineffective orthodox medicines rather than doing it themselves. Empowering our clients to break free when it’s safe up do do is difficult putting us between the client and the doctor. They tend to listen to the doctor as they have more “authority” when really listening to healing might be what would be desired.

    • You are so right, Louise. People who are getting no help at all keep seeing their doctors and doing whatever they say even when the advice they’re getting couldn’t be stupider. Like telling cancer patients to eat plenty of candy to keep their weight up.
