Alternative Medicine

Although most alternative medicines and treatments are not scientifically vetted through clinical trial or FDA-approved, many patients have experience therapeutic benefits from different kinds of alternative medicine and vitamins or supplements.

If you have found something that works for you, that is great! But before you try anything, particularly something that you ingest or inject, please consult your physician. Certain vitamins and minerals, for example, can interfere with the effectiveness of certain antibiotics, so it is important that your doctors know what you are taking, in case you need to schedule those treatments differently from your prescribed medications.

In addition, you should never start or stop any prescribed medication or treatment without consulting your doctor first.
