We ask that you be cautious about accepting online medical information - particularly testimonials. If doing your own research, scrutinize the study methods (size, type and number of studies). Ask if it's been replicated? Does it apply to your diagnosis and circumstance? ... check with your doctor, who has training and first-hand information.
