I keep seeing questions on alternative methods to help with Graves
Disease. We had our telecon this weekend and one of our support group
leaders in Maine is our man in the field who can provide information on
holistic and alternative medicine “TO BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH WHAT
YOUR ENDOCRINOLOGIST OR DOCTOR SAYS YOU NEED TO TAKE FOR YOUR TREATMENT”.
Charles Zafonte at 207-834-6273 is the man to ask questions. He uses herbs,
vitamins, excercise, diet etc. to help control his Graves. He is our
expert in that area. Charles does not have a computer so e-mail is out.
We cannot put our home addresses on the internet so snail mail is out.
If you want to talk to Charles you will have to call him and he will return
your call collect. He can give you his address over the phone to send him
mail. It turns out that there are a few folks out there who find our
addresses and show up on our door steps wanting to come in and talk. We
at the NGDF want to do all we can to help but we are leary of folks showing
up on our door steps wanting into our homes. It can get scary. I actually
had one person who tracked me down to my hotel room when I was out of state
on business. I am not saying I would not invite any of you into my home
because I would. I don’t want to come across here as uncaring. These are
folks who were unknown to us or in some cases to well know to us. But I
digress. Keep writing and if you are in the Melbourne FL area give me a
call and I would be most glad to see if we can meet face to face. I’m just
that kind of guy.
