The Dangers of Playing Doctor

Following my last article, I wasn’t going to write a new post so soon… but a subject came up that I felt that I should discuss – what I perceive to be the dangers of playing doctor and also, it has to be said, my reluctance to direct people to online pharmaceutical vendors.

I find that I have to walk a fine line because whilst I do unabashedly champion The Sinclair Method as a great way to recover from Alcohol Use Disorder, I have to act responsibly and tell people to always – ALWAYS – speak to their doctor first.

It’s a matter of public record that four and a half years ago I imported my supply of naltrexone illegally (so perhaps that makes me something of a hypocrite), but the fact is if I had to do it all over again I would have obtained my supply privately from a medical doctor rather than taking the risk that I did.

Which is why I these days urge people to check out the Find a Physician page on the C3 Foundation website (see HERE). I do that and I always tell people to buy Roy Eskapa’s The Cure for Alcoholism because it covers just about every question that anyone would have to ask about TSM and it also has a section specifically devoted to prescribing guidelines for physicians.

To be clear: when I speak about The Sinclair Method I speak from the point of view of my own experience as a grateful recipient of this innovation, not as a medical professional and though I’ve educated myself on this system and I think that far more people should know about it and have access to it, I don’t know everything that there is to know.

Just thought I’d reiterate my disclaimer because though it’s good to talk about science there needs to be certain boundaries.
