It is time to make clear to the group that offering treatment to fellow members of the Ben's Friends Community is NOT permitted. Each and every member is unique in their causes and symptoms of their condition/disease, possibly have other health problems, some of a serious nature, many taking prescription medications. Good health care is not done over the internet, even by licensed Doctors and nurses. Even our licensed members are not allowed to treat anyone of our members.
Also know that chat room discussions of the nature of "I'll give you some advice, try taking some natural stuff, it works better than medication" may put another in a dangerous situation. This is not allowed either.
We all try our best to offer advice and comfort to each other, but please THINK first, you may not only be putting your membership at risk, but someone else's life!
Treatment of any condition or disease is best treated by someone with certifications, IN PERSON, even herbs and vitamins can interact with meds, or have reactions all on their own, perhaps even adverse reactions.
Using foul language is NOT permitted.
The rules are not that difficult to live by, please honor the commitment of Ben and his friends in their mission. The rules are listed on the main page.
I talked to JC before posting this.
