Well, I will say a tried a "holistic doc" in FL. He did some things that I didn't agree with. First, how he prescribed Armour to me. He prescribed it as just taking the dose once in the morning. I asked about taking it in afternoon as well b/c of T3 being so short acting. He said that "it isn't done b/c it would keep me awake." I asked about T1, T2, and calcitonin in Armour. He said that Armour doesn't contain that. He also said that he felt that my dry cracked bleeding hands were from my dish soap. Funny, b/c I had such fatigue that I couldn't do the dishes, my dh was and my legs were just as dry and I sure do not use dishsoap on my legs
! I guess my point is, you can get good docs within any range of holistic, md, do, etc. You just have to find them. The holistic doc I went to didn't work for me, but that's not to say one (or even the same one) wouldn't work for you or someone else.
