Andy Kaufman died using alternative healing methods; so how can you say they work?
Please look at pt. 1 for intro and other info about this
Also Kaufman was trying every alternative that he could find. If something new came up, he would do that. He was not deciding to believe that some treatment or combined treatment was what would work for him. He kept looking for the one new magic bullet, the one that would work.
This presents a number of problems. Remember Salomon maxim, as you think in your heart … Each time he grasped at something new, he was inadvertently saying in his heart that he needed the new one because the old one did not work for him. So it was so; he thought it. Your thoughts can nix any healing.
As you think in your heart … Running to each new treatment, he on some level thought the before treatment(s) did not work for him. As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.
Kaufman, whether the old treatment(s) were or were not effective, nixed the treatment(s).
Jesus said, all things are possible to him that believeth, that is keeps on believing. Kaufman had ceased to believe in the treatment(s) as seen in his grasping for the new one. He nixed the treatment with doubts. James in the Bible said the one who doubts should not expect anything.
Kaufman may not have died because of ineffectual alternative treatments. So the answer to the original question of this article is that the death of Kaufman may have nothing to do with the effectiveness of any alternative treatment.
These are some things to think about in the death of Kaufman.
See now my several pages please on alternative healings. As you can imagine, you will find more info there.
