I am happy with that. I do have a medical background but would not consider prescribing any form of treatment without first seeing a patient. What is right for one person may not be for another.
As you quite rightly point out, there is no way verifying someones medical background. I have often been asked in the pub as to what should be taken for a specific ilness, my advice has always been the same 'Go and see your GP'. The GP is the only person with your full medical history to hand. Internet forums are not the place to give/ask for medical advice. If not the GP then at least a Pharmacist will be able to give some advice.
