It is truly amazing how intelligent CFS & Fibromyalgia patients are. I say this because CFS & FM patients will often go to the doctor armed with literature, books and any other information that they have researched on the Internet. They will ask to be tested for this, and screened for that. How many people with other illnesses do that?
We HAVE to do that because a lot of physicians are just not up on the hormone imbalances, thyroid issues and underlying infections that cause our problems.
This article here talks about how doctors just do not have the time to read updates in medical journals and that is scary. We are trusting our health and our lives to people that are supposed to know more than us.
Doctors rely on what they were originally taught in med school and don’t change their treatment philosophies despite new technology and medical information that is up to date and available through the medical journals.
Ground breaking research that goes against the status quo, and that does not support the drug industry, is often receiving very little attention.
That is so sad because it is hard to tell how many diseases could have probably already been cured if things were being handled differently.
