  1. Thank you for sharing this information I was unaware of it. I certainly appreciate your hard work and not being one of those doctors who just offers a pill which isn’t getting to the root of the problem for the patient .

    I never knew there were 2 types of Doctors like you described either. I think you are headed down a wonderful path and I look forward to reading more about your journey!

  3. So that’s what D.O. stands for on some of those medical coats I’ve seen in offices. It sounds like a wonderful career path if your choosing the medical field. I am all about getting under the cause of the pain or sickness as opposed to treating it. I like prevention and healing!

  4. Thanks for sharing this – a very interesting post and certainly something I wasn’t already aware of so it’s great that I know now!

  5. I LOVE THAT YOU ARE GIVING PEOPLE INFORMATION ABOUT OTHER WAYS TO ATTEND TO THEMSELVES, WAYS OTHER THAN JUST PILLS. I THINK WE AS A SOCIETY HAVE GOTTEN WAY TO INTERESTED IN THE SHORT TERM EFFECTS OF PILLS RATHER THAN THE LONG TERM SIDE-EFFECTS OF THEM AS WELL AS THE BENEFITS OF OTHER AVENUES,E VEN THOUGHTHEY MAY REQUIRE MORE TIME AND WORK

  6. I love this and completely agree that PREVENTATIVE is the way to go! Every person is different and needs to be assessed on their lifestyle, diet, and fitness. Helping to find the right mix that will maintain homeostasis in the body is better than treating an issue!

    Thank you for sharing this! Now, I am aware. Thank you for having a good heart.. Sending lots of love!

    • Yes, exactly!! It’s one thing to prescribe when it is necessary… another to simply do it to please the patient and put a bandaid on the situation.

  8. Amazing post! I’m so glad you’re starting this series – people often focus on allopathic medicine and aren’t aware of another great path of medicine they can commit to. I’m definitely going to be following your series, and I can’t wait to learn more about osteopathic medicine!

  9. Hi, I found this interesting to read as I never knew you can visit an osteopath without being referred to one by a GP. I will definitely consider this an option in future. Thanks

  10. I like that you asking questions beyond just filling out the prescription pad, underlying causing are a huge part of most medical issues not to mention a predisposition of our genitics which is completely unavoidable no matter how hard you try sometimes. You can do everything right and still get the same issues your grandfather had, sometimes it is just in your DNA.
