Dr SJ Newell's letter (WDDTY vol 9 no 4) is typical of the response to our research when we present evidence to doctors of alternative treatments. Our daughter was given six months to live, two and a half years ago. Thanks to WDDTY which steered us in the right direction and published a case study (WDDTY vol 8 no 7) which inspired our research we could avoid giving her life threatening drugs. We believe that by not being given drugs which merely suppressed the problem, but by using natural, alternative treatment, our daughter got well. Wake up Dr Newell. Martyn Shambrook, Surrey...........P.S. We have now come across hundreds of different illnesses in children where none had been cured at all by "conventional" medicine, eg 'drugs' to suppress the problem but had all got well on sensible "researched" alternative treatment. Has modern medicine lost its way?
