Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor

The below first appeared on Facebook:

Someone has stated a concern that I am not clear enough about my level of expertise and says I don’t have any authority to say what I’m saying. So this is my disclaimer:

I am a human being. I read and study and experience life. I am not a doctor and never claim to be.

And I ask, who is an authority?…certainly not the doctors who’ve caused us all this harm. We are all equals…every human being on the planet. Everyone needs to research their own needs…and find helpers who can treat them as the unique individuals that they are. 

The main thing I say again and again is that we’re all different so nothing I say can be generalized 100% EVER. That is a constant disclaimer in everything I write always. We’re all different. We all have different paths. One person’s poison is another person’s medicine.
