Nurses-How Did You Find Alternative Medicine?
It appears there are a few nurses in this community who have realized allopathic medicine is not what we were taught it to be in nursing school-a healing art. My own journey toward that realization began with my first employment after graduation. Full of zeal and desire to help people heal, I began my career in Oncologly. Before the first year had ended, I had determined death would be better than available cancer treatments. Still it took many years for my belief to be totally destroyed. The night shift was preferred as I found it the only shift when true patient care could be administered due to ridiculous patient load and paperwork. Fifteen years in, the night I had orders to prep a semi-comatose patient from a nursing home for a battery of obviously unneeded tests, the realization that "medicine" was a money making scam became a truth for me. That was the end of my nursing career. And how wonderful it has been learning a true healing art that "does no harm" So, nurses, how did your journey begin?
