A short background first.  I have only been following BTD for about 10 days.  I feel alot better, and have lost 10 pounds already.

I had an appointment with my Doctor today, and asked if he could have the lab run the Lewis test and the MN test.  He said "he has never heard of the Lewis test, and why would I need that?"  So, I whipped out my book ( it follows me everywhere right now) and showed him the section about secreters and nonnies.  His only answer was " you realize that is NOT a medical book, right?"  So, I dropped the conversation, as he was not about to understand, and I have decided to figure these things out on my own.

So far, the best three things I have found are, NO MORE CELEBREX, 10 pounds of weight gone, and my digestive system feels good for a change.

Becky, I've run into the same problem with my Western medicine doctors. I have an appointment with a Naturopathic doctor next week and hope to get those tests done through her. The downside is that my insurance doesn't cover my visits to her or the tests. But I'm okay with that.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

It may not be a "medical" book, but it has lots and lots of scientific research to support it.


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

I am demanding  myselve what would happen if all those who took celebrex would awake and just stop it, take the BTD books and live with them......revolution is guaranted

I've been in December to my 2 years check....and this whitecoated sayed to me...*.hey I don't wanna know what you are doing or taking as pills, it is not normal at your age to be that healthy and no problems *     I tried to give him a chance to work with BTD but he wasn't interested .....

Yes Becky...I have a doctor of the same callibre.  He believes that Dr. D is wrong.   And...as mentined above I am glad that it is NOT a 'medical' book either.  It is a book that leads you to actually living the way life should be lived.

Becky...just in ten days you have accomplished so much.  Imagine what a lifetime will bring.  Try to find yourself a good naturopath...I have one also...not covered either and worth every penny.

P.S.  I carry my books alot of places too...especially when I go out of town.

It's so sad how the term "medical" has been hijacked by at least one generation of total narcissists that have overtaken and almost completely illegitimized the medical industry.

Hi Becky - what great results you are having!  I won't even get started on the traditional doctors.  I honestly think some are no more than legalized drug pushers.  Never concerned with actually fixing a problem only concerned with masking the symptoms.

And actually thinking nutrition has an impact on one's health?  Heaven forbid!

Sorry, guess I did have a little rant.  

Super congrats to you!

I have to agree, drug pushers w/ a license.         I almost fell over the other day when my brother told me the dr at the ER said they needed to find out what was causing his constipation not just fix it for now.      Guess there is some hope still but they are far and few between.
Becky, I have to say, I had a good chuckle when I read the title of your thread. That's pretty much what I think of 99% of them.              Just yest I got my blood test results and mentioned to the gal who helps the dr that I NEEDED to get in to see the endocrinologist since both tests on my adrenals dropped. She was like "huh, everything was fine".  I said 'everything is in range, but it has dropped since the last tests'.      Just aggravating!!  I feel like "what am I paying them for?", as do most of us here, I'm sure

for most doctors the "book" is a $25.00 prescription that may replace the hundreds of dollars of drugs they prescribe....they're threatened financially where as if they embraced it they would suggest all their patients have their Lewis, MN tests done and reap some financial gain from it and the same time support the patient's decision to follow the diet.

Doctors are brainwashed for the most part

I agree with the posts above. My doctor is a nice guy, but he was completely baffled when I saw him last year and everything was normal--perfect blood pressure, all bloodwork within normal ranges, and 50 pounds of fat gone. I've brought him ER and LR to read and told him point-blank to not even bother with the low-fat diet/drugs approach--I'll never go that route ever again. And he is WORRIED that I am following the BTD, because he believes it isn't a legitimate food plan. How in the heck does that make any sense at all?

Now that medicine is a business dominated by the HMO bean-counters, and drug reps are more important than patients in most offices, we need the truth of the BTD more than ever. I thank the Creative Intelligence for Dr. D and his work. He has saved my life and my health, literally.

You got that right    the drug reps walk in and out of the office while you're sitting there waiting for your appt. How's about seeing THEM at the end of the day. Like that'll ever happen.

I second this statement. I think if not for BTD, I prob wouldn't be around. My bad eating habits (even habits I didn't know were bad at the time), compounded w/ everything else, would've prob already done me in. I am SO thankful for BTD and Dr D.

Amen to that, sister!  More times than I can to remember, I have seen drug reps come in and go right back to see the doc or whomever!  Never mind that the waiting room is filled with patients waiting to be seen! UGH!    I think doctors get special "incentives" for using particular drugs.  In my case, I switched doctors after being told time and time again that there's a pill for this she can give me and a pill for that ... blah, blah, blah ...  No thanks, not into being a walking medicine cabinet!  Makes me angry!

FWIU, that is exactly the case. They get kickbacks on some and they get something (not sure what) for moving drugs that aren't 'moving' for whatever reason.

JMHO: medicine has become a business, pure and simple. Not all doctors run their practices that way, but most do. If you have insurance through your workplace you're pretty much stuck going where you have coverage, and where the coverage is, the ersatz health care is also.

If you want good health, you have to create it for yourself. That's always been true, but it's more relevant now than it ever was, since (again imo) most doctors are not concerned with your health, they're concerned with their own bottom line and what the drug and health insurance companies want.  An ounce of (BTD) prevention is worth a pound of (drug company) cure!

Medical doctors are about "medicine".  They deal with disease and don't understand about health.

We choose to focus on health and wellness, how to attain it and keep it, through our own actions.

How much money will doctors make if all their patients became healthy?

Unfortunately, the drug companies have the $$$ to bribe the FDA (or other gov. orgs.) to make it so we can't even use healthy alternatives.  We need to stay vigilant to keep the freedom to use the natural foods and supplements needed for our health.
