It is possible to live a productive and satisfying life with a chronic medical condition.
The HEAL website shows you where to start.
We've been doing it for more than thirty years.
We said "medical condition" above rather than "disease" because the medical business has used the word disease to get your
attention. Take the case of AIDS (which is Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Syndrome simply means a collection of health
conditions. Syndromes are multi-factortial and by definition, a single form of treatment would be inappropriate.
All of the AIDS-related diseases, that is all of the indicator diseases used to diagnosis AIDS have existed and continue to
occur independent of so called HIV-infection. Most of these diseases have long been associated with severe malnutrition and
pathological social stresses, conditions that have existed and promoted the break down of health since the beginning of time.
At HEAL, we advocate expecting health. If you develop a health problem, you coolyly deal with it outside of the context
of AIDS. Most health problems don't call for heroic medicine. We'll tell you about proven alternative treatments. (And we'll alert you to unproven
procedures of all types.) You will find many resources for many practical non-toxic approaches to taking charge of your health
After all, the site is called HEAL.
We are specialists in helping people make informed decisions and this site is a gateway for everything you need to educate
One thing that strikes is how different AIDS in Africa is to the United States. A different strain, they say. What does that
mean? We'll discuss that.
But most of this website is about you.
About healing you.
We introduce ourselves below. Join us and you'll also get to know the scientists at the cutting edge and how to use their
knowledge in your own life.
When we're sick, we tend to think everything about our body is in pain and hopeless. We'll show you how to treat a symptom
without harming your body. We now know, for example, how the medical misuse of antibiotics has harmed public health. HEAL
made this call more than two decades ago.
We've also seen how a disease diagnosis can terrorize a person who felt in good health except for a single symptom. Disease
has come to mean death. We'll show you how to question that.
We're glad you found our site.
You'll be glad too
