But you’re not a Dr !

Oh I 100{2658607c068490114260e14c260e6ae174f4b10b752c604f4a58b348bf83bb16} agree I am NOT a Dr !

and I never claim to be one haha

However

IMO the best Dr’s practice what we call Evidence-Based Medicine

So what is that ?

Well its the blending of all they learned at Medical School

along with all they learned in the 10 – 20 – 30 years they have been practicing Medicine

Those 2 things are different BTW

Their understanding of the current body of literature on any subject – ie Peer Revied Research

and

” what the patient wants” – patient preferences

So when a General Practioner speaks about ” Sports Medicine”

He is speaking about one tiny sliver of the full spectrum of what he has to know about – everything from Blisters to Babies to Barbells

This is why they have ” Medical Specialists”

For they can focus their practice on just ” babies” for example

Now, what does an Evidence-based Trainer do ?

Honestly much the same, very much the same

NO, we don’t go to Medical School – 100{2658607c068490114260e14c260e6ae174f4b10b752c604f4a58b348bf83bb16} agree

So we draw on all we have learned in the 10 – 20 – 30 years we have been training ourselves

Their understanding of the current body of literature of any subject – ie Peer Revied Research

and

” what the client wants” – preferences

The most important point here for me is the

The literature I read is from exactly the same place as any Dr

PubMed® comprises more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health by providing access to biomedical and genomic information.

Takeway ?

Am I interested in what a Dr has to say about X in our World ?

Sure speak up, lets hear it

Does he have some special resource at his disposal that we cant access as laymen in 2019 ?

Perhaps his Resources Network, ok maybe you dont have that, yes I have one of those as well for things I dont understand but it took me a long time to develop agreed.

Does he spend 10 – 15 hours a week reading about Training and Nutrition and Enhancement?

haha ask any Dr and they will say no unless they are a specialist in this field and who is that ? Endocrinology is close but I know Endos that don’t understand PEDs or Training or Nutrition at all !

So why then does having a Medical Qualification override your own opinion?

You can and should educate yourself and that IMO starts with reading the very same materials that your Dr is going to read on this subject

Yes it can be hard to understand agreed.

Moving forward I will be trying my best to help simplify some of these discussions without going ” too far” into Bro Science ie just abandoning the evidence altogether.

But sure you’re right I am not a Dr

and your Dr is not me haha

Ask him his opinion absolutely! I more than encourage that
