I wonder, is this common? I've never known a GP to have a rule like this.

I hope she isn't a pill-pusher, James. And that one-subject rule of hers seems very odd. How did you happen to get a new doc like this?

If you will lower your carbs and increase the fats in your meals, you won't need her pills for cholesterol. They are dangerous pills, and could cause you worse side effects like muscle damage and brain fog.

Aleve on a regular basis?

Bad for your kidneys and your doc should know that.

This one does not sound like a keeper.

Also, all NSAIDs, which includes thlenol, ibuprofin, alleve, aspirin, etc. contribute to intestinal perforation ("leaky gut") with long-term use. They're really bad news and only appropriate for occasional use for pain. Do whatever you can to stop using them regularly.

Leaky gut allows harmful proteins and other bad things to pass the intestine wall and enter the bloodstream where they should never be. This causes all kinds of things like systemic inflation and unpredictable immune system reactions to these toxic invaders.

This is not a direct physical effect because you swallowed the chemical into your gut. Rather, it is a systemic effect. NSAIDs block a certain process that comes in two flavors. One of its flavors gives pain relief. The other one prevents intestinal perforation. They were only able with the NSAID shotgun to stop both of them. There are a few newer NSAIDs which allegedly only stops the one needed to pain relief but doesn't interfere with the other (e.g., VIOXX and others). Unfortunately, it seems to have other problems.

I've heard of this. It's not uncommon. In Canada, and I presume in the US too, it's so doctors can bill more. They'll say it's to make wait times shorter, but that's bull hockey.
