Yes, despite our best efforts, occasionally we will see a patient who is not a good match for our treatment regimen. This has to do primarily with attitude. When individuals do not believe they can get better, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Secondarily, we make every attempt to educate patients prior to their first visit regarding the scope and cost of our treatment regimen. Unfortunately, some individuals are unable to follow through with the financial commitment required over the long term to purchase hormone prescriptions and/or vitamins, and discontinue this treatment regimen. Finally, some individuals get conflicting advice and opinions from other medical professionals, family, or friends which leads them to discontinue treatment. Few medical doctors, and even fewer lay individuals, understand the intricate connection between nutrition, the immune system and hormonal balance. As long as there remains ignorance and confusion about these areas, there will continue to be some individuals who we are unable to help.
