Yep, it's an 'instant gratification' sort of society we live in.
I get impatient too, but would do just about anything to avoid surgery.
And like your doctor, I don't have much faith in humanity as regards taking better care of themselves - everyone I've spoken to about liver flushes, etc either argues that it isn't possible or thinks I'm nuts. Only a few closer friends are too kind to not let their disbelieve be shown. I have had one friend in Denmark who did a successful Liver Flush after I e-mailed her the protocal, so at least I helped one other person a little!
I'm not sure about this electric pulse thing though. It may be something to look further at if the homeopathic methods aren't working.
