A few days ago, I received an email from a friend whom I rarely see, but who occasionally shares with me her thoughts and ideas. The email, (a portion of which I share at the end of this column) contains a message within the message, as is so often the case.

Aloha, if words (“ripples”) are so important than why does the Garden Island Newspaper not publish Comments given by serious thinking people about important issues especially in the field of health.
Obviously with the state of health of too mamy of our population “ripples” of words could benefit so many who are on medications, drugs, and rolling down hill on the road of degenerative killer diseases.
There is prevention, it always beats the cure and the ill and dangerous side effects of treatments that too many take for granted. “O What Fools We Mortals Be”.
I prefer to read all the “ripple” words that improve our community. Let them be published.
Charlie, comments are one thing; but, just on the chance that an OpEd by you convinced someone to switch from radiation therapy to carrot juice, TGI doesn’t want to be named, along with you, in the wrongful death lawsuit!
The unfortunate truth about your appeals for leaving the corruption of establishment medicine for the soft and gentle graces of alternative medicine is that Alt Med is the comfortable nesting ground of quackery and many times more corrupt! Where do you think those who lose their license to practice go? They don’t take up basket weaving or hotel hospitality. There is no regulation or accountability overseeing that “health food store” you frequent. You think that little $87 vial actually contains essential oil of Tibetan goose down? Why would they bother? Who is gonna know? If treatment isn’t evidence based, why would you choose it? “Well, it worked for the late Charlie’s Aunt Mable, too bad it didn’t work for him; NEXT!”
I keep waiting for Hooser to take his own words to heart. Yes, words do matter so he should stop playing fast and loose with the truth.
Plus his column is so self-serving. Really, Gary, quit Patti g yourself on the back and telling us how great someone thinks you are.
