that is exactly what my Gi told me when I mentioned probiotics and pretty much all things alternative, his whole face scrunched up like he was disgusted, and of course I made the mistake of saying I read it on the internet, which your GI will tell you is total garbage, everything on the internet is garbage ecept what he says, haha.
Specialists ego's are so freaking huge...
Anyway, he put me on the same stuff
Calcium, D, Iron, Multi, pretty generic stuff, that he never prescribes, jsut tellls me to buy over the counter....
What do I look like, a cash macheine, sthat stuff adds up, ever try buying all that stuff on disability.
I gotta keep reminding him every time he reccomends something in the Doctors office, he can not tell me to purchase it over the counter, if he is going to reccomend it please prescribe it just like they would the 500000 unit D, etc
He is cool about it now, I just have to actually remind him every time, or he will forget.
Nothing feels better then standing in line at the pharmacy sick waiting for 20 or 30 mins sometimes to get there and be told ther eis no prescription, when you were sure your Doc wrote it, then you get to choose, days of emails back and forth over stupid calcium tablets, or pay the money :)
Anyway, sorry, rant over
Point was, Docs seem agaisnt all these alternatives, but they sure seem to work for alot of people
