America is replete with consumers of a myriad of self-prescribed and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, minerals, and other treatments not prescribed by a licensed physician.
Only a physician is fully trained in the biomedical and clinical sciences through a highly competitive and rigorous medical education to competently diagnose and treat the human body and mind
Lay persons have no such competence, despite the Internet browsing.
Secondly, the only medical treatments that are scientifically sound are those taht have been empirically verified by double-blind randomized experiments and meta-analyses, as the Food and Drug Administration requires of prescribed drugs and other treatments.
Consumers must stop and desist with respect to any chemical substances or treatments that are neither authorized by American biomedical and clinical science nor prescribed by a physician.
