    I am open to any treatment from anyone that will get me on the road again. That being said I have a problem of credibility when a practioner says I have what you need but I am the only one who can provide you with the proper goods. Take out your check book and go see the girl at the desk and buy THIS. This is what happened the first time I went to a naturopath. Only she could get me the best calcium and multi vitamins and they were soooo expensive. Did it for a year until my skeptical side and wallet said a screaming no. I now let a new alternative practioner right upfront that I fear the profit bias if they prescribe and sell. Much is said about what Dr. prescribe and I have no knowledge if some is good or bad but I do know I prefer to not have the paycheck of the prescriber affected in any way when telling me I need to take such and such. On the same thought some insurance plans are set up so the Dr. makes more money the less he treats you or send you to a specialist. That kind of bias could affect your very existence.
