The Docter VS Vitamins & Supplements

Doctors have very strong opinions about the value of vitamins and supplements. Some of them see vitamins and supplements as helpful in the prevention of disease. Others see them as a new way to practice alternative medicine. Then there are those who completely discourage its use, except for taking a standard multivitamin.

This leaves the patient in an uncomfortable situation. This is because if someone is serious about finding an alternative to traditional Western medicine, a doctor cannot help them. Doctors cannot prescribe vitamins and supplements like medications. They cannot even recommend that you take them. The vitamin and supplement industry is not regulated like the pharmaceutical industry, so if a doctor tells you to take vitamin C for a cold, it is really just an informal suggestion and not a prescription.

Talking to a doctor also puts them in an awkward position. Whether they believe in the healing properties of vitamins and supplements or not, if you come to them with a medical condition, they are legally required to prescribe the correct medication to remedy your situation. If not, they open up to all kinds of malpractice. Even if doctors get creative and try to prescribe an alternative drug or treatment that they know will cure someone, the insurance companies will refuse payment.

This leaves patients who want to explore alternative treatments for diseases on their own. However, there is alternative help if you want to try options other than traditional medicine. While a doctor cannot recommend a heavy vitamin regimen, he can give you tests to monitor your progress. If you decide to treat a disease with vitamins or supplements, it takes much longer to slow or regulate a medical condition than it does with traditional medicine. For example, it can take up to two years to lower high cholesterol with just vitamins and supplements. As long as you are regularly tested by a doctor, you can monitor your progress.

Always tell your doctor which vitamins you are taking and how much you are taking. He may not like it, but unless he has a valid medical reason why you can’t use them, he will need to understand. If he doesn’t, find another doctor. Alternatively, you can also talk to your pharmacist about what you are using and what you hope to achieve. They can be very helpful in choosing the right vitamins and supplements and checking that any vitamins you are taking do not conflict with your current medication.

You can also go to a holistic doctor if you want to remedy a minor situation or are looking for preventative medicine. Holistic practitioners are licensed professionals who can recommend more specific vitamins and supplements and more radical forms of alternative treatments. The vitamins and supplements they recommend are more organic and powerful, so be sure to follow their directions specifically and seek immediate medical attention if you experience side effects or other symptoms. Holistic practitioners are caring, knowledgeable professionals, but unfortunately, they are still no substitute for doctors.
