Before you jump on an airplane to go there, gather your information first. Try to get as much information as you can from the groups, or researchers that are conducting those treatments. Ask them about their experiences, ask them about their results, ask them about their outcomes, ask if you can speak to individuals who have undergone those treatments or trials. If these groups hesitate, or seem reluctant to, then I would pause and ask, “why are they are so reluctant?” If their experiences have been so dramatic, and so potentially beneficial, I would think someone would want to shout from the hilltops about what they’re experiencing.
