Fuskie, stop and think. Your doctor is paid by his practice or hospital. And who pays their bills? The pharmaceutical giants. So of course it's SOP for them to push prescription medication over naturopathic remedies every day of the week. Any time you want an honest opinion, follow the money. Your doctor has a vested interest that opposes vitamins and minerals and herbs and supplements. He is the wrong person to ask.

What you are probably referring to is Omega 6 or Omega 3 oils (I forget which). And yes, one is beneficial, and the other not. I'll try to find the particulars but go ahead and do some research online. You can obtain them easily in liquid or capsule form at a Natural Foods grocer in your area and they are easy to include with your meals. Easiest is simply adding a spoonful to your salad dressing. You may experience some stomach cramps at first.
