    The problem with doctors is that the FIRST thing they think of is a pill, which treats a symptom but not the cause. DIET is often the cause of many problems or can be used to alleviate symptoms without need of drugs.

    I don't doubt it bit with all the different meds on the market not sure how they could know or remember it all.

    Forwarded this to my niece, who's a pharmacist. Curious as to her understanding of the problem.

    As someone who just took 8 different pills with breakfast, this is a bit scary. Recently we were told about a drug that would replace Coumadin, and we could eat Vitamin K without any cares, and not have to go get tested every month. Sounded unbelievable, and it was. Side effect was increased death..lol.

    Maybe I am just getting old, but I also think Mr. Goldcare needs to iron his shirt.
