Geopathic Stress: Where EHS meets All-Natural

Debbie Rye, of www.alternativeways.co.uk, describes herself as a “natural health therapist”.

I’d be more readily able to comment upon her job description if I could make sense of it.  A natural health therapist?  What does that even mean? What is “health therapy”?  What makes it “natural”?  Is “natural” a good thing?  Who knows.

Debbie was suffering from severe headaches.

I also experienced 2 miscarriages and developed pregnancy related diabetes during the subsequent successful pregnancy. The diabetes returned about 4 years after the birth of my son and gradually worsened from being treated by diet alone, to diet and tablets and eventually insulin.

UFOs that are really really not Chinese lanterns? Uh-huh. The moon landing was hoaxed? Gotcha. Telegraph, thy mysteries bore me and thy secrets hold no shock.

Except, I was wrong. That’s fine though, I’m always happy to admit when I’m wrong (I am! What do you know, anyway?!). So it was with equal parts incredulity and glee I allowed my love/hate affair with the Telegraph to take me in its warm and scientifically-bereft arms with the headline ‘Do you believe in angels?

No, I don’t. Nor should you. Silly Telegraph.

Still, it’s been a while since we wrote about them, and it’s rude of me to deny the Telegraph their fun, so let’s see what it’s all about. Read the rest of this entry »
