UNIQUE HEALING DONNA PESSIN: IS DONNA PESSIN A “QUACK”?

Leave a comment

WELL, WHOM AND WHAT DETERMINES THAT? OR, NO YOU DIDN’T!

Begin by watching Donna Pessin’s videos and reading her books. I did this over two years ago. The answer from doing those two things, for me, was a NO. A no for many others I have corresponded with doing The UHP. On occasion I have heard from some who say they have watched “all” her videos and read her books [ doubt they did]. From that they got a “crazy” vibe from her. I know any person can find, or project crazy onto anyone whose message they do not want to hear.  I am not completely discrediting what her critics are saying. Hold on, and keep reading. This post is not written by the President of the Donna Pessin Fan Club. I would be lying if I told you that nothing about Donna Pessin’s presence in her videos was a trigger for me. I was looking at content, and  her message made sense and had me questioning things I thought were true. Her composure and down to earth delivery was refreshing to me.

PLEASE CONSIDER THIS

Are Western Medical Doctors and other Western Medical Practitioners, people who dole out meds and therapies with a laundry list of caveats, ever asked this question about them? Treatments and Meds that have a history of lawsuits attached to them. Has anyone ever asked you if  your Traditional Medical Doctor is a Quack? That is assuming you have a Western Medical Doctor! Quack and popular Prescribed / used Conventional Medicine protocols? In the same sentence? I have rarely to never seen or heard  it. If one does a search on Chemotherapy [one example] as Quackery there is close to zilch from Western Medicine itself that surfaces. The suffering  that many withstand and tolerate from, during and after Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments is accepted as normal. This is the treatment that is prescribed by Doctors and the Pharmaceutical Companies they do business with. Big Pharma has a heavy hand within the Medical Community. As if you did not know.

Both Western Medical Doctors and Big Pharma help to keep patients in the dark about what is really wrong with them. However, many patients want it that way, or it would change. Why? One reason is that they can continue to live as they always  have. The ” Doctor” will take care of it all. Hello, everyone!  There is the internet today and information, both accurate and fear based is abundant. No one, especially those who have access to a computer, need be clueless around the risks of Allopathic / Traditional Western Medial Treatment. I am, for this post, targeting Chemotherapy and Radiation. Listen, if you think Chemo and Radiation saved your life, I am not going to argue with you. It probably did. However, who wants to repeat that? No one I know, so Western Medicine as a long term plan? You can do better.

REQUEST TO WESTERN MEDICINE

Dear Traditional Medical Doctor – Practitioner,

Please define cancer, in plain language,  and tell us what the word Cancer really means. Define it in understandable biological terms. Not the terms that you and your friends at the Pharmaceutical Companies have come up with.

Thank you.

PS There are people who deserve and want to know. Some may not want to. Don’t worry, you will always have some takers. More than enough to please your shareholders.

TAKING CHARGE IS NOT ALWAYS SO EASY

Yes, Cancer and other Western Medical patients need to do their own research. Many are often afraid to do anything other than what “The Doctor” says. It is easy when a person has a medical diagnosis, such as Cancer to give up control in that way. There is usually pressure from friends and family to go the Western Medical Protocol/Big Pharma route. If you have ever felt ill enough to consider going to an emergency room, you may be able to understand their line of thinking and decision making. People who are ill are often very vulnerable.

SHOULD I, OR SHOULDN’T I?

One way to help decide what to do is watching a video of the surgery or medical procedure that has been recommended for you, such as a  hip replacement operation. Last time I checked is available on youtube. Then allowing that information to help you decide whether to have the surgery or not. Why don’t more people watch a video of a surgery they are considering? Clue: With a hip replacement there is usually a saw involved. When you use a saw on the human body there is lots and lots of blood. Same for any animal carcass. In other words, it is not pretty.

The alternative to an operation, such as a hip replacement, requires some deep self reflection. Then the energy and focus to find another solution.  Then you need the energy and drive to put it into action. This is no easy road for an ill person, for any person. So, if someone is in oodles of pain they are looking for relief. Reducing inflammation for a person in dire pain, the natural way, is a no easy fix. Not by a long shot.

IS DONNA PESSIN A QUACK?

When private consults were possible with Ms. Pessin she was very dogmatic about her protocol. More clay, herbs and colloidal silver were her solutions. This did not work for me after three months. It has not worked for the tens of others I have corresponded with via this blog. It did not work for many I have “met” on the FB UHPSG Forum. If a patient can not talk to their practitioner and problem solve that does not make for a good long term relationship. Is that Quackery? It most definitley is a relationship gone bad. Many of Donna Pessin’s clients have felt left high and dry with a protocol that worked for awhile, sort of worked, was getting some results and stopped. Sound familiar?

Part two: Presently there is a lack of solutions to the problems that numbers of people are having within The Unique Healing Program. Donna Pessin has stopped one on one consults. Okay, so people feel bloated, nauseated and achy. Add to that there is no one to call for help. Hitting a wall, feeling frustrated, alone and just plain sick is not conducive to healing. Is that Quackery? Sounds like many Doctor/ Patient relationships. A relationship many feel they have no other alternative but to put up with it. This is not healing. This is a practitioner / client /  patient  situation gone bad. All this only adds more obstacles to healing.

Western Medical Practices often lack a supportive and nurturing staff. Office situations that do not have creative solutions to the problems of their patients. Is this the experience for everyone? No, but enough people feel this way. That is why people seek out alternative protocols like The Unique Healing Program. They want to find some answers. They need someone with experience to talk to about their progress, or lack there of.  Doctors are usually the ones that tell the public that this is THE way “we” do things. What goes unsaid is that if you decide not to go along with the protocol you can hit the road. By the way, that road is usually scary and lonely. You NEED us more than we need you is what they are inferring.”Us” are Western Medical Practitioners and their Prescription Pads.  Point being is that it is unnecessary to be a doctor, or play one on TV to behave like a Western Medical Doctor or Practitioner. And what does that behavior look like? Meet Donna Pessin. BTW, she would angrily scoff at that notion or completely not acknowledge it, giving my premise even more credibility.

ONE STOP SHOPPING? FOR AWHILE, MAYBE…

So, I have written many posts saying that I found something called The Unique Healing Program, and  that it helped me. I did say that, and also stated, from the beginning,  that there were always caveats attached to doing UHP. I made it clear that I needed Colon Therapy during my time on UHP to deal with lessening my symptoms. I mentioned that I had to, on my own, tweak The UHP to make it work for me. I pointed out that Ms. Pessin’s advocating the use of Sodium Bentonite Clay to absorb toxins was her strong point. Sadly, the major weak point is that Donna Pessin boldly promotes her program as One Stop shopping. Does she really believe that? I do not know. However, when speaking to Donna Pessin, any inference that UHP does not work creates a whole lot of defensiveness on her part. That or a complete shut down of communication.  Now that is mature! Her video that states Die Off does not exist on The Unique Healing Program, is a prime example. You can feel better on her program while cleansing by using her “Crutches”. Okay, the big problemo is that this is not true for anyone I know doing The Unique Healing Program some of the time, most of the time, or after awhile.

HOW COME?

Why? One major reason is that her program is lacking a strong enough anti viral and anti bacterial agent. Her recommendations of more clay, CS and Bowel Strength are not a long term solution. Long term? Well, she makes it clear her program can go on for 1 – 5 years. That is a whole lot of clay to drink. Remember some are drinking up to 24 tablespoons a day. For how many years? How long can one take Berberine and Colloidal Silver and it still be effective. When do you transfer to lesser amounts, Probiotics, etcetera. Well, if it is not in her books, and she swears it is, you are screwed. Is that Quackery? You tell me. It is disappointing and just plain unprofessional.

SOME HELP TO INVESTIGATE.

If you are looking for another step in the healing of Constipation, Bloating, Diarrhea and any other indicators of the underpinnings of poor health, then  I suggest you read a book by Kerri Rivera that has some challenging and very helpful information about healing the bowel, body and brain. Also, David Wolfe’s Longevity Now Program. Dr. Fred Bisci, PHD has a website, book and 80 some odd years of educating people to heal themselves. There is Donna Gates, creator of the Body Ecology Diet. Of course, there are others, but those I just mentioned are ones I am most familiar with. These authors and practitioners place creating Bowel Health at the top of their list for creating better health. Each of their methods are in several ways different. What they have in common is that they can help you, in some way, with or without The Unique Healing Program. On the other hand, they may help you appreciate what Donna Pessin has to say in her books and videos. Her use of Sodium Bentonite Clay and Berberine Herbs. Do your research, comparing, and intuition. If you do try The Unique Healing Program, keep in mind what I have written here, in more recent post, and those beginning in late 2012.

Thanks for taking the time to read.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
