Fucking nonsense. By that logic, the 99% of doctors could not treat covid that showed up for the first time last year. For one, you continuously learn through practice and your colleagues. There is also the CME (continuing medical education) that doctors need to get every year to renew their licenses and there is also a big test every few years if you wish to remain credentialled by your board. All in all, this blows the crap out of your ignorant argument.
Most cases the Nurse practitioners are the more knowledgeable people in medical practices because they at least a lot of the hands-on experience in the field.
This is non-sense. By en-large this is not true at all. The training is not the same and the breadth of knowledge is not the same either.
I would not trust a Doctors word on many topics aside the basics, especially pharmaceutical ones. most Doctors have no knowledge of nutrition, no knowledge of eastern medicines, no knowledge of even the most updated western accepted medicines.
Couldn't be more wrong if you tried. Doctors have no knowledge of nutrition? or patients don't want to hear shit about nutrition?
And again with this "alternative medicine". Do you know what name we give to medicine that have shown to be helpful? Medicine.
I cannot speak for all schools, my med-school taught me about hundreds of herbal and "non-traditional treatments" but there is a problem with most of these. For one, in most cases the studies are either non-existent or poor quality. They are not regulated or minimally regulated so the formulations can vary significantly. They interact with other medications and it is not like you getting something that is safer either, they can still bust you liver, kill your kidneys, etc.
Obviously you research things, get second opinions before you trust someone, even a so called expert.
Second opinion from who? Another untrustworthy doctor? or your facebook friend Hilarious.
