I was a client of Dr. Clark's about 15 years ago in Indiana. I was a student at Taylor University. My future husband's brother had significant food and airborne allergies causing depression and general poor health. Since Dr. Clark had helped him so much I ventured to go as well for my own reasons. Dr. Clark never pretended to be a medical doctor, but presented herself and her own credentials as they were. Since then, my husband - the one who's brother went to Dr. Clark - has become a medical doctor as well.
Dr. Clark caught things my own family practice Dr. never caught, and predicted the years of infertility I eventually did have, due to absolutely skewed hormone levels.
Several prominent people in the southern Indiana area during that time were also greatly helped by Dr. Clark and the help and information she was able to provide. My father's business partner's wife (I believe her name was MS) was greatly helped by her, and after years of infertility, migraines and general poor health, modified many things about her environment and diet, shed the migraines, gained 20 pounds (much needed) and conceived and delivered a healthy child. None of us felt Hulda was presenting herself as a medical doctor. But all of us know that medical science is a field under development. And we all knew how to look for answers elsewhere when the initial 'solution' offered by our own physicians was not satisfactory. My husband finds out several times a year that protocols that were taught him in medical school and residencey (and he only graduated Medical school 10 years ago and Internal Medicine residency 7 years ago) not only didn't help his patients, but actually probably hastened their demise (e
xamples: use of diuretics for blood pressure reduction.) I also remember hearing his medical school mentors deride all the antioxidants as only creating 'expensive urine.' And now as time passed they are all prescribing vitamin E and other antioxidants for their patients. Hulda, 15 years ago, was letting us know what the earliest studies were saying and encourage me to boost my health with antioxidants. Is this practising medicine? Is anyone charging Prevention Magazine with the same charge?
I think the days of Dr's being the priests of our health are done, we are all now our own priests, and we consult those we believe best qualified to speak to us. My own husband is thrilled with this development. As someone from Indiana, I am sorry there are those so 'backward' there as to actually charge Hulda with a crime for doing good.
