Yup, it happens.
Though it depends on why you go to the doctor to start with, too.
Not all drugs are meant to treat; some are intended to prevent, too (in the case of prophylactic antibiotic treatment, or blood pressure meds, for
example). And sadly some conditions just can't be prevented or cured by homeopathic means.
There's a big problem at the moment with people still demanding antibiotics for things like influenza; the doctors shouldn't be catering to stroppy
patients, but it does happen, just to shut 'em up.
We're a quick-fix society. We want instant "everything". Most of us don't want to spend time eating right, exercising and taking better care
of ourselves....and that's half the problem. We also need to quit rushing off to the doctor every time we sneeze or have a headache. That
isn't helping anything.
