Yesterday, Misha and I talked a bit about alternative treatments and how quack-ish they can seem. I complained that people don't give realistic info about what they can do. She said she figured the reason they don't is that many people won't go to you unless you say you can cure them. For example, she doesn't tell Hep C patients that she can cure them, so they go to another acupuncturist who says they can take away the virus. Anyway as I wrote the other day, Misha thinks it's worth looking around for options, trials and second opinions, especially from UCSF, Keith Block, and thesecondopinion.org.
But the folks at thesecondopinion.org can't help. They say:
...we just don't have docs that deal much with cutting edge treatment or clinical trials...would be a waste of your time.They recommended some doctors at UCSF and Stanford who I could consult.
I have called Keith Block's place twice. They haven't called me back.
