nicely stated. And it's true, that there is an aspect to a person's path that is all about "choice". Sometimes, it might be part of the Grace of having free will (in terms of making choice) as to whether one goes down the pharmaceutical path or takes the more natural route.(Meaning available to all without a prescription, and without any 'middle man'.)
It may be that one person's path into the anti-fungals and that sort of approach, will bring the person to a deeper appreciation of suffering, or enable them to meet with some other valuable lesson, or meeting...
so, I stand corrected, (if my words were too dogmatic) at least in the sense that there are more mysteries ocurring, at all times, on a multitude of levels, than we could ever be aware of, or imagine.
I would simply be saddened, were anyone to believe (just by hearing it said enough times)that their fate is out of their own hands--and in the hands of those whose work is to sell drugs (and supplements) and to help 'manage symptoms': in the world of mainstream medicine,( which can even include "naturopathy") it is rare to study - or draw studies from health--how much less then, is one to know it is possible? And perhaps well within reach?
