There was no option for me to choose what fits me, which is both. I also see an osteopath, acupuncturist, multiple body workers and other healing arts practitioners.

I go to medical doctors. Luckily, none of them has ever disparaged my vegetarian diet. In fact, my gynecologist, who is technically a Nurse Practitioner, upon hearing of my diet sent me to get blood tests for iron and B12. Lucky she did that, because my iron stores were a bit low, as was my B12. She recommended me some vegan supplements, including an herbal extract, and within 3 months all of my levels were good.<br><br>
I've even managed to find a good doctor at my university's campus health, which is not the easiest thing to do. She always draws diagrams of what is going on in your body that is ailing you. I like that she explains things thoroughly, like I'm a human being with a brain that gets concerned, instead of just fixing it...which you do to a car.

Yes! Same here. One on my team is psychologist (PhD) and also a clinical hypnotherapist. Her sessions are *very* helpful to me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

Years ago, I tried hypnotherapy to quit smoking. It didn't work for me. I had to to quit the hard way. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

My primary doc is a D.O. I love him. Occassionally, we also use M.D.s and ARNPs. I also am close to a PA who I consult once in a while.

I go to MDs and PAs. My old general practitioner was a DO. She was great. Very supportive of my veganism.

Neither. I eat a healthy diet, exercise, and use Arbonne products so therefore I don't need to see anyone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> Sorry but that's probably where this thread was intended to go if the OP hadn't been banned. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lipsrsealed2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sealed:"><br><br>
Back on topic before I get banned myself : I go to regular MDs. I wouldn't mind seeing a naturopath but they are expensive and usually don't accept insurance.

None. Haven't been to the doctor in the longest time...should probably go for a checkup or something. But I'd go to a naturopath first and if they couldn't solve the problem then I'd see an MD.

Me either. I like integrative and complementary medicine.

I go to a medical doctor for medical problems and when I have money (rarely) I will indulge in complementary therapies like acupuncture and massage. They aren't for treating ailments, unless you count aching muscles, just for pleasure. I find treatments like that soo relaxing.

I haven't been to any kind of doctor in ten years, give or take. I don't ever get that sick and I haven't been injured. I'd go to an M.D. if I had to pick, though.
