Then they are the ones who should be blasted for exploiting the innocent.

I agree with both views, I feel this woman is probably being exploited but if not and she really wants to share her idea. Even tho untrue, and it gives her a smile, aww I'm beginning to crumble.

Just as long as some jumped up medical student dosn't quote it at me, i'm oki.

Those videos are so sad. My aunt is just like her, she has obvious symptoms but cannot see them herself at all. My aunt has said she will fight HD. We all know that can't happen.

I feel so sorry for that lady, why would her friends and family let her think she has cured herself when she clearly hasn't?

It seems sad that they would let her think that way but I think why not. If it makes her feel happy then why take it away with the gloom of the truth. Theres no need to make her unhappy on purpose.

Besides if she was determined & set about it, they probably didn't have much choice but to support her or go against her & we all know what a bad idea that can be.

I doubt many people would take it serious & if they did, cutting out caffine wouldn't be dangerous. The withdrawals I know of are headaches & they pass.
Thats my thoughts on it anyway.

It reminds me of that movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding where the father swears by 'Windex' as being the cure for everything, you see him spraying it of ppl's bruises and head when theyve got headaches, etc, I love that movie. I actually didnt realise that Windex was a real life product until I moved in the states - I thought it was made up for the movie, there you go a bit of movie trivia for you :)
