.I think you do a lot of research and truly are passionate about what you know. But I know I would probably stop seeing my doctor if I knew he was taking medical advice from a guy with a high school diploma. When it comes to my health, I research everything I can and consult my doctor who has 10 years plus of education in the medical profession. I don't want to see a doctor who relies on common sense when it comes to my health. I have an advanced degree and went to law school. The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know. I read your posts with interest but would never regard it the same way I would advice from a licensed medical practitioner. You have to realize that as incompetent as some doctors may appear, you are in no position to challenge their competency armed with a high school diploma and self taught medicine. Perhaps if you toned down the perception that you consider yourself on par with doctors, and possibly their peers, your advice would be better received. You have a lot to contribute; no need to knock doctors not on your buddy list to bolster your status.
