Witch Watch: Folk medicine buried many of its mistakes

from the Canton Observer, April 26, 1979

Despite knowing some of Gundella's conservative stances on things this WW article kind of took me by surprise. Although she promoted folk remedies for many minor ills she was seemingly consistent with the point that if one was truly sick that they should go to a doctor.

I'm not so sure that her stance wouldn't have changed with all of the new alternative treatments for cancer, which she died from in 1993, that have proven to be quite effective in place of traditional radiation treatment. I think the one thing which wouldn't have differed is that a physician should be aiding the recovery regardless of the treatment given. You can't argue with that sound logic.
