For those doubting the curative effects of alternative medicine, here's an interesting news that's sure to shed more light on natural healing. A medical doctor disillusioned with medicine to cure Lyme disease has stumbled upon a potential cure.
After spending fifteen years of his life practicing modern medicine, Dr. Rawls lost faith in it after being diagnosed with Lyme Disease. He later found what worked wonders for him in the alternative world and now advocates this treatment protocol for others.
His story is important for multiple reasons. It is personal as Dr. Rawls describes in detail his symptoms, diagnosis, and healing timeline. He also explains from his years of experience with pharmaceuticals, why – at least when it comes to Lyme – antibiotics do not work, and how he found legitimate proof that alternative medicine does.
He confirms why most people going the conventional route never fully recover – modern medicine simply does not understand Lyme Disease, he says.
Dr. Rawls was originally diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but later found out that he has Lyme Disease. In his late 40s at the time, he eventually realized that all of the symptoms of Lyme disease were there. After being bitten by a tick one July, he had a bull-eye reaction at the bite site – a clear sign of Lyme, which a test later confirmed.
Antibiotics caused him to feel nauseous and generally horrible, and did nothing to affect the Lyme Disease. When researching more into it, Dr. Rawls found out something shocking — no clinical study has ever shown any real benefit of antibiotics when used to treat chronic Lyme.
Modern medicine has no other answer except prescription medications that treated the symptoms of Lyme disease, not the Lyme disease itself.
“My faith in the medical system diminished,” he writes on his website, Rawls M.D.
His search expanded into all of the existing alternative methods, from Rife machines to natural herbal therapy. He analyzed all available options based on cost and available scientific evidence.
What he found to be the most compelling was information from Stephen Buhner’s book, “Healing Lyme.” Dr. Rawls describes Buhner’s approach as “logical and based on sound scientific evidence.” While still a little skeptical, he gave the protocol provided in the book a try, and to his surprise – it worked.
In just weeks, Dr. Rawls felt less pain and many of his symptoms subsided. In three months, he writes that he “felt human again.” With each new month he felt better and better, and in a few years came as close as he thinks it is possible to a complete recovery.
The good doctor was able to recover from Lyme disease completely, writing that alternative healing change his life completely. Dr. Rawls adds that antibiotics are not the most effective treatment for chronic Lyme disease. The Buhner Protocol is said to have a success rate of about 75%.
