Did he drive up in a fried-out combie? From the hippie trail, head full of zombie? He's probably right about the vitamins -- it's good to see there are some doctors out there who are not in the pocket of Big Pharma . . . or, for that matter, Big Shoe ;)

ah an open minded doctor who doesnt disregard things because theyre not supported by a pharmaceutical company and actually keeps up to date on current literature...rare. youve got a sore throat, you dont need pharmaceuticals. a change in your diet is probably all you need at this point, just get yourself some common sense and stop wasting the time of doctors who are already overworked and overbooked. people like you are the reason i had to book a week in advance just to get a script. if you had a real problem this would be an fml. you dont. so shutup. YDI.

Strep throat can cause heart problems and kill your kidneys. It isn't cured by a change in diet. I have a friend that has had 2 kidney transplants because he got strep throat when he was younger and it wasn't treated in time.

@126 he doesnt have strep throat. thus this isnt an fml moment, its a YDI moment. people like that who refuse to accept doctors advice because it doesnt come attached with a script and the "now take 1 of these every morning before meals" message means more wasted time as they keep going back to see the doctor for something that is already treated. as such, people like me have to put up with their crap and wait longer to see someone because they need to be fixed immediately.

@15 vitamins such as C can reduce the duration and severity of basic conditions like the cold or flu. theyre not supposed to be used as a method of getting rid of it, and it wont kill your symptoms but most people would want to get over a condition quickly rather than mask the symptoms for a while...or thats what id want anyway. embrace the pain for a couple of days and go back to being 100% or try to hide it n hope it goes away in its own time...hmmm...
