The Amish Way
On the more evidential and practical note:
The real case to look into in search for solid basis to assertion about natural and traditional treatment’s positive impact surrounding Amish community can be taken from the story of an Amish girl by the name Sarah Hershberger,11, and her family who live in Ohio. A little girl was diagnosed with leukemia and was put on medical treatment in local hospital, she was scheduled for chemotherapy procedure following her admission to the hospital when her family promptly decided to interrupt her treatment process on the request of 11 year old girl because of fears of crippling health-related complications that modern medicine methods eventually bring especially when subjected to chemotherapy and such.
In defiance to court ruling, to assign “guardian” to make crucial life and death decisions for her and her family and the entire community in relation to medical treatments they’ve so vehemently objected to, they were forced to embark on the journey for their beliefs and dignity,fleeing ignorant and rude authorities, to take care of the little girl on their own, employing experience of history, traditions and medical knowledge as assets in swaying scales of life.
Sarah is said to be alive and doing pretty well with cancer is gone says her grandfather and no traces of terminal disease are present anymore, in her body as blood and imaging tests show, attesting to her full recovery after some period spent on the run with her family, avoiding harms of prescribed cure by modern doctors.
