In general I would agree with it.
The problem is that it is hard to find a good doctor. Especially in countries that have socialized medicine, where the government decides what is right or wrong and forces a lot of regulations on doctors. Regulations that are usually lobbied by the pharmaceutical industry. If you practice some ‘alternative’ medicine, the government is likely to withdraw your licence. This is basically the major reason why I’m really considering moving to some place else.
So, basically, my views are probably a bit different than others because of the doctor mismanagement in my medical history.
Don’t rely on what your doctor says. Use the lab results as a ‘starting point’ and do research yourself. A lot of medical information can easily be found on the internet. Take your doctor’s advice as ‘something optional’ and something to keep in mind and carry it out if you deem it beneficial.
Just my 2 cents.
