Reasons doctors don't use nutritional treatments

Reasons doctors don't use nutritional treatments

I tell my patients that every major medical journal and surgical specialty journal contains at least one-nutrition based article in virtually every issue. The problem is that doctors do not read them. Instead, they focus on articles concerning the newest surgical techniques, diagnostic tests, or expensive drug treatments. My theory is that the nutrition articles are ignored because doctors simply don't understand them, especially if there is a lot of biochemistry involved. In addition, treatments will not increase a doctor's sagging income the way an exorbitant new procedure can.

...The only time doctors ever learn anything about biochemistry or nutrition is in connection with a pharmaceutical drug's mode of action or a very focused review of a disease process. Actually applying biochemical/nutritional knowledge to patient care was and is as rare as hen's teeth. Nutrition is essentially biochemistry, and medical care devoid of nutritional considerations is like a car without wheels. It goes nowhere.
