I'm just wondering whether people here are less likely to take medication that their doctor suggests, like medication for mental health or for adrenal problems, and also I was wondering, if you choose to go the route of supplements instead of from pharmaceutical companies, why you choose to go this route. Not judging anyone, just wondering. Personally, I think that the only real thing doctors know how to do is write scripts at problems. Think about it, they only have 10 - 15 mins max with each patient. Does that sound like enough time to really go through your symptoms? I also think they are too reliant on medications instead of home remedies. For example, I had an eyelid infection recently and all my doctor could do was write me a script for cream that was going to cost about $60 - $70 (US$40 - 55). Instead, I looked up remedies online for eyelid infection and researched myself and went and bought full-strength, undiluted tea tree oil from the chemist and started applying it over my eyelids with a cotton bud each and every night before bed. Within a couple of weeks, the condition I had for over a year was healed. But my doctor never even suggested tea tree oil to me. Why not? Why was a cream with all of these chemicals in it, which may or may not have worked anyway, suggested to be applied to the sensitive area? And it cost way too much for me to buy anyway? Why didn't my doctor suggest the simple home remedy first? Another thing is that I've had several instances where doctors had NO CLUE what was going on with several other conditions. If you don't have a broken arm that can be put in plaster, or you get into ph imbalances, yeast/candida, worms, anything like that, doctors have no clue. They are at least 20 - 30 years behind in medicine and I feel they have got the balance all wrong with writing scripts and treating the person as a whole. So seeing as I've been shown time and time again that doctors do NOT have my best interests at heart, and really have no idea once you present them something they haven't heard of, why should I automatically pop pills that they think I need? I just don't trust them anymore... I'm so glad to have access to the Internet.
