I went to the doctor's office today for a "routine" check up for our 14mo old and was met with open hostility by a new doctor. I was lectured and ultimately threatened by her because we identify with the Mennonite (how we live) lifestyle. We raise our own food, milk cows/drink the raw milk and don't eat things that haven't been prepared naturally. This doctor threatened to call the Health Department on us because in our state it is illegal to SELL raw milk for human consumption. We're not selling it, we're drinking it. I thought honesty was best, so I said we drink our milk straight from the cow - a cow that is pasture-fed (GMO free, grain free - aside from what we use to lure her into the milking station, etc...). Then, even though it's been in our charts since our first born (3 years now) she lectured me on what a BAD parent I am for not vaccinating our children (even though it goes against what we believe). She then threatened to call Children's Services on us and file a complaint! I am so angry at this vicious attack from her! Now I am stuck trying to find a new pediatrician's office before my baby (who is already 3 days overdue) arrives.
Where is a good place to find a friendly Holistic doctor? I feel so overwhelmed and emotional (partly due to pregnancy hormones)...I know I will breathe easier once we sever all ties with this practice and find a more reasonable establishment...one that understands our lifestyle and how we choose to live. Anyone else out there have similar encounters? I could really use some encouragement!!
