More on Olivia

I am beginning to think I am her fan or something as this is my third post about her.... but once again I am blogging about Olivia Newton John and her cancer recurrence. I have another problem with her and her recurrence. This is it in her statement about what her plans are for recurrence:

"I decided on my direction of therapies after consultation with my doctors and natural therapists..."
Her plan is to focus on radiation and natural therapies.... I don't have a problem with natural therapies but I do have a problem with their use without additional medical therapies.

I used to work with a woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer and after her surgeries she decided to use graviola as her treatment, skipping other treatment options. She had a recurrence a couple of years later.....

Honestly after what I have been through I have a healthy respect for Western medicine, Asian medicine, and other modalities such as yoga, acupuncture, reiki, and more. I would not just natural treatments because I think they need to be combined with other treatments. If natural remedies solved everything, other medicines would never have needed to be developed.

I also realize its not my body in question but I can still disagree with her treatment plans.
