    The only alternative health care that I know of here in TC is the Shephard of Hope Clinic. I've been with that doctor for at least 15 years and though I have gotten pretty much everything I asked for I am deeply disappointed that I seem to have to give him ideas. They have alternative therapies there even chelation but he never seems to be interested in trying anything on me except drugs. Maybe it's the fact that he knows I have no money to pay for other things. They just seem to play the traditional therapy with me so I am looking for someone that treats FMS and other things I have more agressively. Some of the nurses are even rude at times but I am sure it has to do with patient loads. I know it is hard on both sides.

    Tell me what clinic you are speaking of would love to know?

    Could u please tell me what protocol they do have because I am unaware of it?

    I left a message with my doctor there begging him to help me and I still have gotten no call for three days. I don't want you getting discouraged because of me. I have been a patient there a long time and it may be that I am wearing on their nerves lol.

    I didn't know they had a protocol......hmmmmmm. I see lots of herbal supplements on their shelves though maybe I just need to push more and divie out more money than I have.
