Like "It's good to talk to your own doc, but be prepared for them to not know what you are talking about sometimes. Consider their medical training: They are taught drugs and surgery, for the most part. Drug co. reps visit them regularly to pitch their drugs. Most do not have the mindset to think outside the box a bit, and try to do things that help the body heal itself by following natural laws, such as exercise, rest, pure water, sunshine, fruits & vegetables (very healthy diet). Sometimes it is helpful to use natural substances that are not chemically altered by the drug companies so they can patent them. Just research anything you are considering taking carefully first, and learn all you can. "
