@Andrew Dodgshun - Thanks for the link! For me, it highlights the need to be an "informed consumer" of services. I quote from that paper in the New Zealand Medical Journal:

"While it may have been reasonable for an alternative medicine practitioner to manage the lesion initially, when it was noted the lesion was not responding to therapy but rather progressing, appropriate referral should have been sought. Also, from the time of the initial consultation and throughout the duration of alternative therapy the patient was allegedly repeatedly reassured that the lesion was 'not cancer' and advised against seeking a second opinion."

An obvious rule that the "patient" violated is: If it's getting worse instead of getting better, try something else.

Further, I react negatively to anyone who says, "Trust me! Don't seek other sources of information."

In the early 1980s, we had family friends who lived in such a house on the hillside in Anchorage, Alaska. It seemed to work very well there and then. In particular, I enjoyed how walls were rearranged from time to time as their young children grew or even temporarily for "house parties." Tom was a guitarist, Mary was an artist, and they both were active in community theater. Having read the Roberts book in the early 1970s, I immediately recognized the house when we first visited Tom and Mary at their home. Certainly, we learn more as the decades go by, or at least I hope so. I still regard the book as EXCELLENT for its basic philosophy and principles even if some details may be obsolete because we have learned more since it was written.
