The Last Doctor Bill
When I first moved to
I found out Bill and I shared roots in
After Janice’s difficult pregnancy with Rebecca, who was born footling breach, Bill suggested I get in touch with Dr. Jonathan Wright, who was an M.D. but used natural therapies. My understanding of a holistic model of things became deeper with this connection.
Bill helped me when I had an A.C. separation a week after
Rebecca was born, giving me exercises to do and herbs and vitamins to take to
speed the healing process. He helped my Dad with his cholesterol issues by
prescribing blueberries because of the bioflavinoids=
Just last year, when my Dad visited, Bill helped him by giving him some fru=
it anthocyanins to aid circulation. We caught Bill on the
street and he just gave us the advice as a friendly gesture and just charged
Pop for the medicine. It was this kind of service that Bill often gave me.
Perhaps it was that
I saw Bill a couple of months ago when Rebecca was suffering from a skin rash. She had mono a few months earlier, so I also asked about that. He had some calamine lotion and suggested zinc for the mono and cod liver oil and vitamin D for the rash. We are still using that medicine.
I never did get to see a Sox game with Doctor Bill and found out today from my acupuncturist Augusto Romano that Bill died after finding his 27 year old son Noah dead from a heart attack. Mollie Linton, another N.D. said she was sure Bill's heart just broke when he found his son dead.
My life changed for the better when I met Bill Mitchell.
I have always written his name down on forms when asked who my doctor is, though
my visits to him have diminished in the years after I moved from Queen Anne to
Doctor Bill dead
attacked by his own heart
not halfway to 120.
