Hi, I'm not a doctor or physician of any kind, but I do a hell of a lot of research in healthcare and in particular rehabilitation for chronic illnesses and diseases. I can give you all the statistics and supporting evidence that you or anyone else may require regarding the current state of healthcare rehabilitation for chronic diseases in the United States. I'd like to recommend an alternative treatment for you that will without any doubt assist in putting your condition into remission. From that point we can tacle the problem of curing the cause of your unfortunate condition. There are no medications needed, therefor, no side effects. There are no expensive procedures or prolonged time periods of pain or suffering. The treatment directly addresses your condition's causes and not just it's symptoms as todays suposedly high tech modern medicine does. Your problems are largely due to your autoimmune system not functioning correctly and the answer lies squarely at treating the cause and not just the symptoms. Treating the symptoms will only eleviate your pain and discomfort temporarily but will never ever provide you with a cure. That's just common sense don't you agree. I've heard many first hand accounts of sucessful alternative treatments that provided consistant relief and many cures for conditions like yours. Arthritis for example is a CURABLE disease and yet, over 43 million Americans suffer from Arthritis related diseases without hope of a cure. Why is that? If you're interested in what I may have to say in more detaial, plaese email me at email@example.com and I will respond with information that will not only restore hope for you but maybe even a cure. Since I'm not a physician, I cannot say certain things but, one thing I will say to you, you're very young, you have a whole lifetime ahead of you. Don't you think you need to investigate any option you can to restore your health? In any case, I wish you all the luck in the world. At your age it's very difficult to understand the forces played out in the medical and healthcare industry. Please get an informed adult's opinion, don't just rely on information supplied to you by the medical profession. I wish you well. Take care and THINK. That's the best chance you have. May God bless you... Regards...Louis.
