Dr No




You would have thought it was the easiest thing in the world to walk down to the clinic and hand in a letter to my local doctor.   Not in my Spanish village !  The doctor visits two mornings a week.

To see the doctor I had to go to the Town Hall THE DAY BEFORE his visit at midday to put my name on the list and get a number.  There is no Reception just a woman in the waiting room with a pen and a blank list who would not write anything until midday.

I was third in the queue which means I’ll be #3  to be seen by the doctor.   ( I have to get a number, as the last time I saw the doctor with a letter from the hospital Neurologist he moaned and muttered for 10 minutes about me not having a number.   It didn’t matter that I was still in the hospital ward the afternoon before.)

Midday.  The woman started writing down the first name.  They chatted in Spanish and another four names were added to the list.  Okay, I’ll be #7 then.

Unbelievably the person in front of me added not only her name but another three to the list.  Okay, I’ll be #10 then.

As I approached the pen wielding woman ANOTHER Spanish woman walked into the waiting room and proceeded to add names to the list.  I was ignored.  Eventually I was the proud owner of #14.  Not bad for #3 eh ?


The following day I got to see the doctor and handed him this letter (which I Google Translated into Spanish for him).  He laughed at the last sentence and said he will talk to the Neurologist that afternoon.

Yay.  Letter delivered.

Dear Doctor,
Please can you inform Dr *********** (Neurologist, ***** Hospital) that I do not wish to continue with any more chemical treatment for the “Lewis Sumner”. There has been no improvement and I cannot see any in sight. My hands are still useless for picking up small items, doing buttons, writing, eating with knife and fork etc. and my balance is still poor.
Although I am not leaving the Spanish Health Service I need to try other options outside that may be possible treatments for my hands and balance, such as Acupuncture etc.
Please thank her for trying over the years. Cannot win them all.



I did not make this decision lightly.  Over 2+ years I have been diagnosed as having Parkinsons’ then it was genetic and recently Lewis Sumner.  I had the full battery of tests which really found nothing related to my hands and balance.  I reckon it’s a reaction to stress and lack of female company 😀

The treatments produced no improvement.

  1. Initial course of tablets made me sleepy
  2. Next type of tablets my feet blew up like balloons
  3. 25 bottles of IvIg drips. A week in the ward. No change.
  4. Finally, a course of drips with side effects ranging from death to disability which may knock my immune system for six.  No change.


So for me, enough is enough !

Here are some ideas which you can help me with. 

Vote as many times as you like.

  1. Try acupuncture and also homeopathy if you can find a good homeopath there. England has some brilliant ones. Also try rebirthing if you can find one in Spain. Lots of British ones. Get some medical marijuana. Can’t hurt at this point and check it out on Youtube. Treats all kinds of illnesses. You can eat it, or use as a vapour or even make brownies. You do not have to get a high from it.

    • Thank you so much Lynne for suggesting these options. I have researched the major local Spanish towns. The Practitioners speak Spanish. Exact communication is important so I am looking further afield. I have not thought of medical weed 😀 Ralph xox ❤

    I am a skeptic, and I have to say there is no hard evidence that any ‘alternative’ treatments actually work, however I would say if you do try anything try not to hand over too much cash 🙂 Hope you are staying chilled in this heat. x

  19. Maybe look for a naturopath. Herbal remedies often seem to do better than chemical drugs and the side effects can be beneficial rather than worse than the original condition. For instance when I broke my elbow joint I went to the local store that sells herbal remedies and got a joint health supplement. Neither the doctor nor therapist had much hope for my arm initially (at first visit the therapist showed me things like a knife on a rocker you could use with one hand). While that arm will never be 100% it far surpassed any expectations either of them had, to the point that the doctor said maybe he should recommend no surgery to all his patients. Now, just over a year later, the arm functions well enough that other people would not be able to tell it isn’t normal. Another point for herbals – recently I had a bit of skin cancer removed and again went to the herbal store and got a cancer fighting supplement and tea. No idea if I have any other cancers lurking about, but I have had a benign tumor on each leg for years and one is nearly gone now and the other shrinking.

  22. Ralphie, I’m sorry that you’re treatment has come to nought, but I would be doing the same & walking away from it all, although, I’d definitely be looking at alternative therapies. I’m not sure about homeopathy though, because there was a recent Australian study, in which; it didn’t fare too well.
    Contact the White Eagle Lodge in the UK (enquiries@whiteagle.org) and ask to be put on their absent healing list, and whenever they do a healing circle, they’ll send healing energy to you.

  23. Hmmm for what it’s worth (as a nursing student) if conventional medicine has done nothing for you then go with alternative medicine but word of mouth is always good for finding a therapist. Personally I wouldn’t touch Chinese herbal stuff – unregulated & could be toxic and damage your kidneys/liver :(( reflexology, aromatherapy, massage & Indian head massage – they should take full medical history & may not feel confident to treat a CNS disorder could help your overall feeling of well being : ) Homeopathy a reputable therapist would be worth a try. Reiki would be safe – no direct contact. Hypnotherapy or acupuncture I would also try. A holistic approach is always good all the stuff that is no fun but good for you – hydration, nutrition, sleep, exercise & relaxation… XOX TTS

        I hope the Gibraltar contact works out and is reputable. I trained in holistic therapies (whilst working as a scientist) and I know a GP who has done his hypnotherapy training. So I might be biased. Also think about your treatment goals, e.g. improving symptoms may be more realistic than a “cure”. Be good to hear how you get on OXO

  28. Hi Ralph, I think that is a good decision. One needs tablets to counteract tablets – but you still need to get alternative treatment asap. I take herbal remedies Kelp/Digestive enzymes for the prevention of hypothyroidism and a digestive problem that I ended up in hospital with – the latter I was on 8 tablets a day from the doc – now no meds and my digestive is the best it’s been in years. I have to have two capsules of both, every day, for the rest of my life, and I put money aside in a separate account for them each month. I did a ton or research on the internet for these and they work, despite docs saying they wouldn’t, and poo, pooing the idea. I buy Viridian, the purest form, with no chemicals or allergens. I also take Hylak from my homeopath – the are billions of good bugs in liquid form to quash the bad bugs, plus I have Potters natural cough medicine, as and when, I have a sore throat, to prevent a chest infection – after the 21st of this month, I will have had no time off sick from work for a year and a half – which is amazing for anyone, without a low immune system like mine. Plus, I take my usual does of staying up to all hours, not sleeping or resting much, living my quirky, unconventional life, and never felt happier or better – Okay, so a little, tiny, weeny bit tired, just a squidge – An exclusive quote of mine from my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book – ‘Throw away the rule book and create your own’ – this is also on my http://www.quirkycoaching.co.uk site. So a homeopath, kinesiologist (ooooohhh I spelt that right first time), a herbalist, acupuncturist may help – A homeopath and my own research has helped me to most. Balance can be to do with ear probe/vertigo too. You need good bugs that’s for sure – but the ones from supermarkets/tablets are not so good because a lot of them die off in transit, or are mixed with additives. To get your immune system better, you would probably need two bottles a month at least. I keep some now and take them regularly, but not necessarily everyday. Whenever someone is ill around me at work, I top up. I used to have less of them, and used to get in. My new system is better. Love and hugs to you my friend Ralph xx

  31. The letter was a great idea, Ralph. if all the treatments you’ve had so far haven’t worked, it seems pointless continuing them. Some people rave over the benefits of acupunture, so it could be worth a try. You could do with discussing homeopathic remedies with someone in the know because I doubt if any of the remedies you’ve listed to ‘vote for’ would work. Unless you’re turning into a rabbit, I suggest you don’t try rabbit food.
    I hope you do get something sorted out soon. The symptoms you’re still suffering need alleviating. Take care of yourself. 😀
