I was reading about hemorrhoids and ran across this witty observation just now. Since it was made by a doctor, I thought it was even more valid. You can read the whole conversation at the link, of course, but the part that I particularly liked was the last two sentences of this quote. And what the doctor says here about hemorrhoids is applicable to what many doctors do in regard to innumerable diagnoses,...hence the reason that we find ourselves here on this forum sharing our remedies with each other.
"You should stop bleeding within about 3 months of combining the SR with the MO and psyllium keeping your stools soft and easy to move. The docs who made your diagnosis should have told you all this stuff. Just making the diagnosis, and taking the money and running, is NOT being a physician--it is being a technician." askwaltstollmd.com/archives/hemorrhoid/19202.html
