I am always impressed by those who have the courage and confidence to take responsibility for their own physical/medical reality. It takes "courage" to question the proclamations made by the institutions that control our lives and "confidence" to believe our own ability to counter 'institutional' failure.
The institutions, like the OP, would have us believe that our personal experience and analysis don't matter and that their own experience and belief is superior, even in the face of contradicting evidence.
"Natural estrogen/progesterone cream just about eliminated nighttime bladder problems and I had to tell my dr what amts I wanted because she knew nothing about it." and...
"I have prescribed this to hundreds of people and have never seen this side effect."
The so-called "cybochondria" is another made-up condition promoted by the institution to reassert their authority in the face of their failure to deliver public health.
The internet and discussion boards such as this one, exposes the failures of corporate interest that feeds private interests over the growth of the community. As Democrats, I trust that building a healthy functioning community is more important than directing material wealth to a few select individuals.
"It's a great tool esp for researching meds -just go to the side effects forums and you will definitely look for the natural solutions."
