Objectivity Is Crucial for Doctors

Do you find the controversy over natural therapies confusing? Would you like an objective expert who can guide you on when to use natural therapies and when to use prescriptions?

It helps to understand why there is such controversy occurring between natural and pharmaceutical medicine. People do best when a physician practices both the art and science of medicine.

Sadly, the art is being lost as physicians spend an average of 5 minutes per patient. Meanwhile, the science has been corrupted by drug company money.

As an example, research shows that if a drug company pays for a study, it is much more likely to show a positive result than if done independently.

This makes the results scientifically dubious, but journals ignore this data saying "If we didn’t publish drug company studies, we’d have nothing to publish at all."

Meanwhile, a fair bit of "snake oil" is being promoted in the natural health industry as well. So what is the public to do?

As a patient advocate, I accept no money from either pharmaceutical or natural product companies. This allows me to maintain a high level of objectivity. I tend to be skeptical, but open to looking at the research.

I am also good at tearing the data apart to see what it really says, and have had over 30 years of working with both the prescription and natural therapies to see which ones work. My job is to be your consultant!
