As a naturopathic physician, I see this day in and day out.
Have a symptom that is troubling you? Been to doctor after doctor? Not one doctor has recommended the same medication?
"It's all in your head" right? That is the closest diagnosis you have received?
Unfortunately, many doctors forget how the body works. Doctors appear to only remember how medications work.
If doctors cannot label you with a disease, then they cannot prescribe a medication for you.
Then, what Dr Hoffer so brilliantly stated, is true: "If the patient has been to more than four physicians, nutrition is probably the answer" - Abraham Hoffer MD Ph.D.
Don't go to a 5th doctor unless it is a naturopathic doctor or one who specializes in Orthomolecular Medicine.
Unfortunately, many patients and people in general, do not know that naturopathic physicians are primary care physicians. Naturopathic physicians should be seen even before the onset of illness. Physicians who practice Orthomolecular Medicine are also good ones to consider.

If you are not ready to take charge of your own health, then think why you are not. Why is your condition benefitting you? Why do you want to remain in chronic pain, depressed or otherwise unwell? Is there an underlying motive that you have?
Do you enjoy people martyring you? You get time off from work? You enjoy people trying to help you? Does it allow you to be lazy and not have to do much? Do you not want to put forth the effort in obtaining health as it takes too much time out of your day?
These are tough questions but you need to really step back and think about them.
If you're ready to change your life but you simply don't know where to turn, you're going the right way. Schedule a phone consult with me.
