Who is Angel?
I am a Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP), a Loomis
Digestive Health Specialist (DHS) and Advanced
Pranic Healer with training in Quantum Touch and Matrix Energetics.
I'm also a retired teacher of 15 years who enjoyed a 25-year second
career as vice president of investments for a major brokerage firm.
My avocation - my passion - is helping
people help themselves. I
firmly believe that education is the best means to that end and the
only avenue that allows people to know their options and make
informed choices accordingly.
My story begins in 1970
when I ate some bad food in Mexico. That one incident changed my
life. Three doctors and one month later I was finally diagnosed with
dysentery and placed on extremely strong
antibiotics for a
month. The potent antibiotics killed off all the bacteria in my
body, good and bad alike. I didn't know that one should always
follow antibiotics with probiotics to replace the good bacteria that
was lost. This simple, common sense and well known, holistic fact
would have saved me a lifetime of misery... had I only known.
For the next 20 years I
suffered a myriad of problems all relating to that one episode. I
developed a systemic Candida infection that went undiagnosed for 20
years -- not for lack of trying. I must have seen a different doctor
every year trying to find answers. I developed terrible allergies to
heat, cold, preservatives, food colorings, and many foods. I must
have taken 20 different
to no avail. So when
conventional medicine failed I tried the alternative route.
mistake was trying alternative medicine on my own.
I didn't know where to
turn since, at that time, there were no alternative doctors in my
area. I had no idea what I was doing and had little faith in
allopathic doctors. So I read best-selling books on health and
nutrition and took highly touted
Nothing worked. I almost gave up on alternative medicine completely
until I went to a Homeopath referred by one of my clients. It was
then that I discovered that almost everything I had done was wrong.
For 20 years I read the wrong books, took the wrong kind of
vitamins, and didn't recognize the most obvious of
years of wasted time and money, just because I was ignorant.
It took a real alternative
doctor to set me straight. He spent 2 1/2 hours with me before
deciding that I was toxic from taking all those medications and
synthetic vitamins over the years. I saw him only once before he
retired but it was a real education. He prescribed a homeopathic
remedy to clean out my system which miraculously made my condition
20% better within three weeks. All from nothing more than a sugary
powder that I placed under my tongue for three consecutive days. I
can only guess what progress I could have made if he did not retire.
Over the next five years I saw an alternative MD, a Chinese
herbalist and an NAET
specialist, each of whose treatments resulted in additional 20%
Please Allow Me
A Brief Tangent
There is such a plethora
of information on alternative medicine out there, that it's almost
impossible to sort through all the hype and marketing gimmicks to
find the few things that really work. I had done what most people
do. I went to the drug store or health food store and bought the
supplements my doctors and the literature recommended. What I didn't
know and what my doctors did not tell me, is that anything I bought
in a drug store was synthetic.
are not absorbed properly by the human body and can actually do more
harm than good when the body stores them.
Items found in health food
stores were also under suspicion because there is no guarantee as to
their ingredients, strength or purity. I thought that all vitamins
were created equal so I bought the most inexpensive brand. What I
later discovered is that many supplements found in health food
stores are processed incorrectly and are, therefore, a complete
waste of money. And often there is absolutely no way to
quality supplements and junk. I cringe when I think of the
thousands of dollars I must have wasted on supplements over a 20
I also found out that
doctors who use alternative medicine seriously, treat supplements
like prescriptions, advising brand names, dosages and where to
acquire them. Since the best products are often not found in stores
or available to the public, some doctors distribute pharmaceutical
grade supplements and homeopathic remedies to simplify matters for
their patients. Most allopathic doctors just give the subject lip
service. This is good for business because, when it doesn't work,
you will be back to them for something else and they won't have to
revisit the issue. You will simply think that alternative medicine
doesn't work and never be the wiser... an error in judgment that
could someday prove fatal.
Although it's true that
you may have to spend a little more to get the best substances, you
save much money, time and aggravation in the long run by not wasting
it on substances that don't work or worse, cause additional
problems. So I began researching alternative medicines and
nutritional substances and have put some of my results in the
section of this web site.
I have now come to the
realization that, time and money aside, all my efforts to use
natural remedies on my own only hindered my progress. People cannot
treat themselves naturally with any degree of success unless they
really know what they're doing and/or work with an open minded
professional who does. I am
now a Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP) and I still
consult with my holistic health professional before treating myself.
In addition, it's
essential that you have access to certain tests that you cannot get
on your own, and that you have a physician who is willing to order
them or perform them in office.
Since there are still not
many alternative doctors in my area, I use an allopathic physician
for diagnosis. I always get an in-depth understanding of my problem
from him and hard copies of test results so I can research a
holistic treatment instead of taking strong medications.
In this way I have completely cured myself of
hypothyroidism, bursitis, calcium deposits, psoriasis, chronic sinus
infection, bacterial infection and the
I rarely get sick anymore and much of what I've used is right
here on altmedangel.com.
Since I retired from my
second career in July 2009, I started researching energy healing.
Quantum physics is quite interesting and, if you are interest in the science behind
energy medicine, check out my latest slide share. Too bad I
didn't find out about it years ago. It's a perfect complement to both conventional and
My Goal For This Web Site
Before I retired, I lost
many of my clients -- some quite young.
Good people I feel could have been saved... if they only
knew. In my position I could
not disseminate medical information without placing my firm in
jeopardy. So this web site
was born as the perfect tool to help those who want to take charge
of their life, understand their illness and be involved in their own
cure. It's for people who
understand that good health is a do-it-yourself job.
I have tried to put this
site together using an educational format.
It's the place to go to find the truths on which to build
Hopefully it will save you precious time by pointing you in the
right direction. It
shouldn't take 20 years. You
can read the right
books, take the right vitamins, and see the right doctors.
Everything on this site has been time tested, referred by a physician,
tested by me or summarized from a good alternative book or newsletter.
If you are dealing with a
good alternative physician who you feel should be listed on this
site, please notify me of their name, specialty, address, phone and
fax numbers so I can consider adding them to my
Physicians Reference List.
