I doubt there's any chance of a respite as Mr. Plesman believes fervently in promoting benefits of what he likes to call "nutritional therapy".
That would be fair enough, I suppose, even if it gets tedious to read the same message time and time again. Now though, we have the pernicious and frightening suggestion that seeking the help of a qualified medical practitioner is actually causing us serious harm. That's not what I would call a useful or acceptable message to give to the many, many folk who read these message boards.
As for the claim that we are lining the pockets of the rich pharmaceutical companies, well, I can only say that I am thankful to the research scientists who work to help ease this blight on our lives. Of course those companies are profitable but that, like it or not, is the way capitalism works. Out of those profits they must fund massively costly research and, as there's no alternative, I remain, even if guardedly, very grateful. Sadly, that's even though none of their drugs has worked for me - but then neither has the plethora of "alternative" therapies I've tried.
The plain fact is, of course, that multitudes of people the world over owe their daily lives or quality of life to the tablets they have to take on a daily basis.
