Becky, I have been down that very exact road you are on right now. The MD I had wanted to send me to a Psychiatrist!!  These MD's are so one sided and really don't care about your health, all they want is your money.  I commend you on your perserverance!  Hang in there and stay away from those who are so discouraging.

Cathy,

I think it may actually not be that bad.  It may be that everyone in every profession simply is in their respective profession, doing some specific thing for money, because it's just a compulsive or conditioned fetish they have for that thing.  In other words, they somehow must do that thing.  It's like an obsession.

With this perspective in mind, it's entirely possible that today's allopaths are simply allopaths because they have the sort of innate psychological makeup that somehow compels them to intensely love synthetic things and protocols, and love to be dashing around, constantly tinkering with people's disorders and wanting to be needed and feel superior.  

If this is indeed their psychological makeup and needs as people (and, let's hope, merely a reversible addiction), why would they want to deprive themselves of all that by actually making you better in the long run?

All I'm saying is that there may be more at work here than just merely the love of money.  After all, if all they loved is money, there are definitely other sorts of jobs where they might make more.  The only difference would be in the "fringe" benefits, and I believe we grossly underestimate the importance of those when we try to understand why different types of professionals and industries fail to adapt to what really needs to be done to address a given problem to the satisfaction of others outside their specific field.

i agree with a lot of what everyone is saying but how many go to their Dr. and say please help me but don't change my life style????
Many prefer a pill to a life style change.

meh,

Good point.  

However, it's nice to be able to have both options:  to be able to give people lifestyle advice, if they want to do that, but also to have things like pills available, if they're not comfortable changing radically.  There are lots of those people, too.

it'd be nice to give the MD's the benefit of the doubt, so to speak, but how many are willing to learn about using foods and supplements to better our health instead of medicine? THIS is what bothers me. Even if you give them the books, which I have, they still focus on meds. would be great if it weren't really about the money and keeping them in business, however, IMHO, that's just a fairy tale.

Sounds like MD's are the same the world over! .... they are only interested in disease and it's symptoms... and if the diseases are treated ... well you must be healthy!  If you mention becoming more healthy MD's are just not interested

yep, finding a doc that is interested in getting to the CAUSE and fixing THAT, is pretty tough to find.

I'm enjoying this thread.
My own Dr. has been told of my now lack of frequent sinus infections, joint pains and gut problems, and he's a reasonable human being, so he asked about the book & website info. He just asks if I've been tested for celiac. Actually, since I know wheat, corn and oats play hell with me, why bother? There are other things I'm less sure of that I'd like to be tested for (oh, health insurance, where art thou?)
We've actually encountered more resistance from the vet (who is otherwise wonderful) re: the raw food diet we moved the dogs to a year ago. So much cheaper & they're healthier.

I posted on another thread in here an animation called "The Town of Allopath".  Has anyone seen it?  If not, I've reposted it here:

Not only your doctor is one. I know lot's. Never mind. I think the statement is right : They want to make money. There is a big industrie living from beeing ill. May be your doctor only is afraid to loose patients.
Most people could be healthy if they live right for their bloodtype.


have a nice d(w)ay!

I think that mostly the problem here is, those are sooo afraid not to be accepted by their gilde.....so they'll be out of them that's very scarry for em....no acceptance by their confrères and soeures...very bääää
so thatswhy most of them do their studies because of the money expected, next: helped by pharmalobby, next: thats a form of status symbol * I am this or that*....hi-hi-hiiii
if they will wake up that they ARE nothing....only exercing a job woohooo a job is not the same as a  vocation and/ or  profession .....

What's really sad about this whole thing is that the people who are lucky enough to have insurance can't use it for health.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.
