    Doctors do not care about you!

    This goes for general practitioners and psychiatrists. They are under the influence of greed and profit. Big pharma has destroyed them and the mere goal is to get a patient hooked for life by means of whatever it takes. You have pain? Here's an OxyContin! Can't sleep? Here's...

    Other Options From a Crazy Alternative Medicine Fan

    It's not that I don't like doctors or think they're bad people-- I'm a pretty "live and let live" type of person. But I think as a modernized society too many people run to doctors and specialists for pills. Now, I'm obviously not a doctor- but I do believe that our...

    Visit the doctor, even as a child.   I think if I were in a bad accident I'd rather die than go to the hospital.  There's no way any amount of physical pain could be greated than the anxiety I feel when I'm in the care of a professional physcian.
