Why do ordinary medical doctors with private practice not know what they're doing? A visit to the Psychiatric Hospital Elucidates much?

So I check myself into the mental health hospital for the usual depression and anxiety, and I end up getting cured, most likely, of my physical illness, because they actually know what the heck they're doing.

First they observed me for 5 days off my usual Welbutrin medication, and found that I was actually being depressed more by the anti-depressant. In addition they monitor your blood glucose. Well, mine was never out. However, just because I do have neuropathy, and a fiercely bad case of it, they treated me on a special diet:

Eat More to Lose Weight...

They fed me the same thing everyone else ate, except replacing one starch with a cup of candied fruit. In a couple cases they actually prepared an extra serving of canned or candied fruit compared to everyone else.

I went in the hospital weighing 205lbs and came out weighting 185lbs. I was only in there for 15 days.

They put me on a different anti-depressant which works 10 times better, and I was having mostly normal conversations with everyone by the end of the 15 day period. This was a different Psychiatrist than the one I previously saw.

I am planning to change primary doctors immediately, and this Psychiatrist has arranged for me to visit one of his students for my permanent psychiatric care as well as to recommend a new Primary Care physician and Diagnostician.

They still don't have a "Name" for what I really have, but they are treating it as a different type of Diabetes from the normal Type 1 or Type 2. I was already aware of this, but the other medical doctor was too out-dated, and I disliked his opinions in many cases anyway.

I lost 20 pounds in 15 days by eating more, and I got a better anti-depressant and anti-anxiety combination, and treated my nerve pain symptoms better, all by visiting a mental health hospital.

I went of my own free will, willingly, and I was greatly rewarded by the best physical medical care I've ever received. Also got to help other people and be helped by them.

My primary care doctor had me on a low carbs, low fruit diet, because he thought I was hyperglocemic, and I think that was making the nerve pain worse, and I may even have been developing Scurvy for goodness sake. I used to eat Bananas and Apples, but not enough citrus I guess, but he told me not to even eat that. However, I pretty much ate everything they put on my plate in the hospital.

Anyway, if you've tried "Everything" and it doesn't work, then I recommend, based on what I just experienced, doubling your fruit intake for a a few weeks or a month:

mandarin orange

Whatever you normally would have, eat twice as much of it per meal, and try that.
