I've never heard of Nioxin. Is that available over the counter?
I do admit that I experience a great deal of resistance to the idea of seeing a dietitian--or even my doctor, for that matter. At one point my GP thought I had Cushing's Syndrome and sent me to an endocrinologist. She said that yes, my hormone levels were odd, but she attributed that to eating too many carbohydrates and not getting any exercise. When I told her that I exercised a great deal more than the half hour a day she was recomending, she nearly shouted me down, saying, "you NEED to GET a HALF an HOUR of exercise A DAY! and that was that. It seems pointless to go to an expert when they're not going to believe me anyway and will simply advise me to do things I am already doing.
