Are all of you doctors against alternative medication I use

Resolved Question:

Are all of you doctors against alternative medication? I use Young Living products my Rheumatologist will not allow me to be on these oils. They are pure and I feel better when I'm on them. Now I have to get off why are you all so against alternative?

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. All medical professionals are not all against alternative medicine. Scientifically proven alternative medicine is welcomed. We even have a web site within the National Institutes of Health that examines evidence for using non-traditional medicine.


However, there are some so-called "pure" things that are not compatible with prescribed medication, or someone's health condition. After all, arsenic is "pure" as well. There may be a very good scientific reason why your rheumatologist wants you off certain supplements. Why don't you ask him?
