We talk about, how the patients’ overall well-being can be improved so they can feel like new people again.
To begin with they are only able to go for a very short walk, but in the end they walk for miles. They run longer on the exercise bike, row longer on the rowing machine, are livelier, sleep better and are happier. That’s the scale I have.
I have no scientific measuring devices. I have to use the practical results as a proof until a scientific one can be provided.
– It has been mentioned that your patients are just imaginary healthy. What is your comment on that?
-There is no risk of people only being imaginary healthy.
Moreover, It’s better to be imaginary healthy than to be a hypochondriac. Unfortunately the diseases are not imaginary.
– But there must be patients you’re unable to heal?
– We’ve seen many sad examples of how a human body is broken down year after year, and in the end it is just too late.
For me that’s the most sad thing to witness.
It will easily become too late, when all you do is talk about a case without doing the right thing.
It’s not enough to talk.
When I walk in a dark valley, it’s not enough to talk about how wonderful it would be to reach the top of the mountain, where the sun is shining.
No, it’s about making a decision.
Determination to do the right thing is necessary.
But I have yet to meet a patient who wasn’t prepared to make an effort.
To be continued …
This page is part of an ongoing translation of the Danish Book: Gigtens gåde er løst (the mystery of arthritis is solved) by Peter Laursen. The book was published in 1989 by the Danish publishing house Hellas, and tells the story of Alma Nissen, who for more than 30 years cured thousands of patients for amongst other things arthritis, psoriasis, asthma, pneumonia, herpes, gallstones and migraines with something as simple as potato soup and garlic, mild exercise, enough sleep and a lot of common sense. Through all those years Alma fought to make doctors put away their prescription pads and realize that drugs against arthritis are worse than the disease itself. The book – Gigtens gåde er løst – tells Alma Nissens story in her own words and gives us the solution, so we can help ourselves, when the medical establishment refuses to.
I think that this is one of those few books that really can have a huge impact on the life and health of the reader, and that’s why I translate it into English, so more people can get access to Alma Nissens wisdom.
