My Aunt, in her nineties, is in end-stage chf and wants to die at home. Palliative Care is pushing the morphine and Ativan cocktail although my aunt says her pain is mild. I'm calling her doctor tomorrow to discuss pain relief and I know I'll hear the same song-and-dance about morphine. Does anyone know of a natural alternative to morphine for end-stage discomfort? I'm looking in my area for a homeopath or alternative medicine MD also.
