I have learned that very few doctors are concerned with the patients' health, they are more interested in keeping you coming back constantly so they can pay for their expensive cars, homes, boats, etc. The ones who are concerned about the patient and try to help you, the AMA goes after in a big way, holler "Quack" and put them out of business as quickly & quietly as possible.
I mentioned to a co-worker several years back, about some people going to Greece & other countries for cancer treatment or cures that are unavailable here. She said "They're just going to take their money and leave them destitute". My reply was "M----, you can't be so naive that you think our doctors aren't doing the same thing. Of course, we aren't because we work at the VA and they don't have to pay for treatment here but the private sector is."
Cable TV aired a 2 hr. documentary back in the 60's titled "Hoxsey: Quacks Who Cure Cancer" which went into great detail about Hoxsey's herbal treatment which his grand-father came up with after watching a favorite mare that he turned out to pasture to die as peacefully as possible with her cancer. Instead she ate herself back to health, eating things that horse's normally don't eat. Yep, bloodroot was part of that treatment. When orthodox medicine tried to buy his formula/treatment method, he told them he would sell it to them but they had to agree to keep treatment cheap enough that people could afford it. He was told that they would charge what they wanted to after they bought it and he refused to sell. They promptly went after him for practicing medicine without a license and closed his cliniics. He let the nurse working with him have it and she has been treating cancer patients with it in TiaJuana, Mexico until her death in the last couple of years. I just hope the treatment didn't die with her. I think that documentary is still available through Project Hope, but they have changed its name (probably because the AMA was against it).
One part of that documentary that I especially loved was the little woman who told about telling her doctor she was going to see Hoxsey, to which he replied, "What for, he's just going to take all your money". Her reply: "Uhuh, they can't . You already did
