Are holistic doctors quacks? It seems like everytime I mention one, people say they are quacks.
Before I made the appointment to see this doctor today, I told him that I suffer from constipation, gas, bloating, a little pain , fatigue. I was under the assumption that these symptoms are somehow related to a food intolorance like gluten or lactose. I went to a conventional doctor and my blood work IgG came out postive(38)...but my doctor told me that it wasn't an absolute way to determine celiac disease and that I would have to go see a GI specialist(which I am on the 12th). Anyhow, in the midst of all of this, I called a holistic doctor regarding my symptoms and initially asked for an allergy test for different foods. He said that the first visit(consultation and examination) is free, but I would have to pay for any kind of TREATMENT. Well, I went in there today thinking that he would do an allergy test on me, he did this thing to my arms and legs that he called kinesiology and felt around my rib cage and spleen and said that I have a hitial hernia and that i'm hypoglycemic(by the way now that I think about it, I do urinate OFTEN and I think that's a symptom). Well, he didn't do the allergy test cause he said now he doesn't have to since he know's what's wrong. He said that he could fix the hypoglycemia with acupuncture and PULL down my hernia with his hands.
Both would have costed me $120 total. Could you please tell me your experience with a holistic doctor and was the outcome effcetive?..thank you.
