I wonder what that neuro would say if a patient suggested they were going to drink poppy head tea as a method of pain management, sipping those steamy opiates rather than popping a condensed pill.
Similar thoughts occurred to me as that neuro ranted on about brain rot but I didn't even venture to ask about the lethal effect of opiates on the brain and body
as he was quite obviously so enjoying hearing himself hold forth. He also had disparaging remarks about CCSVI, calling it a money grab.
All I can say is that I took away with me from my appointment at the MS clnic that day disapointment & a very heightened sense of direspect in certain members of the canadian medical community.
There seems to be a lack of respect by them for people with MS wanting to try anything other than their prescribed drugs and methods and when those don't work they just write another prescription all in vain and say disparaging things about supplements, diet and alternative types of treatment with strong hints of quackery about those alternate treatments that one might have mentioned in passing. All so sad to run into such unenlightened individuals in our health care system!
