I have two doctors in my family who know NOTHING about alternative meds.
No, I do not think doctors work in conjunction with the drug companies consciously...
However, the fact remains that they are educated and the knowledge they have does NOT include alternative methods unless they, themselves, are into it and the vast majority are NOT.
In that way the medical education system, backed by drug companies is the culprit and these dumb-ass doctors are abjectly naive and are their patsies. Why would they need to tell the doctors what their intentions are when it's the average doctor's heart's mission to heal.
