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.
