Some patients I have seen complain of having several years of bloating, bowel and skin problems, perhaps recurrent ear, nose or throat infections and having taken repeated Antibiotics . For some women it could be an endless cycle of thrush and vaginal irritation, for others it may be anxiety, Sugar cravings and bad PMS. For others it may be no interest in sex, joint pain, depression, toenail fungus or cracked heels, an increasing allergy to many foods and plenty more.
And it all begins with one product recommended by a website, forum, magazine, health-food shop, friend or a practitioner, and after a few years the products just keep on coming. You are thinking: “I’ll try this one for my digestion”, "This will nail those nasty parasites" or “This one will make me sleep better”. And so the list goes on. You soon find that you can’t keep them on the kitchen bench top; they are starting to take too much room so you put them in a box or container. Have you ever worked out the daily cost to you? Have you noticed yet that all these pills aren’t making that much difference when it comes to getting rid of your yeast infection permanently? I believe that the more products a person takes, the more product focused they will eventually become and the more likely that they become “symptom prescribers”. Any views here?
