Consider this scenario: A bout with “food poisoning” that lead to swollen lymph nodes and then a diagnosis of strep throat. The antibiotics made the symptoms worse. Next referred to an internist for pain/inflammation, he declared the problem mental, not physical. The internist referred her to a psychiatrist who said she was mentally healthy who referred her back to an MD who—despite her nearly passing out in the waiting room with blood pressure of 70/50—said “everything’s normal, why do you keep coming back here?” Meanwhile, others became frustrated and labelled her “lazy and selfish” or “needing coddling.”
This is the famous author Laura Hillenbrand who documented and published the best-selling novel Seabiscuit: An American Legend—now a major motion picture. Hardly lazy; definitely in need of holistic health care.
