Are you feeling the need to find healing and are desperate to find someone who can help you?  Is it the magic prescription you bring home, cling to the bottle and set your alarm to make sure you follow the instructions to a tee?  Is it the doctor who is ‘your savior’ as he finds the diagnosis of your current list of symptoms?  Is it the surgeon who says they ‘got it all’ and you feel a sense of relief?  How about the alternative healthcare provider who suggests a different path to travel than you are used to and find…
