Traditional versus Modern Medicine

An RE told a Huffington Post blogger who is TTC her second time in her 40s that her eggs were too old, while her acupuncturist is ensuring her that she'll be able to improve her egg quality.  She talks about how hard it is to try to find a medium between conventional and traditional medicine: 

The truth, as I see it now, is that while the linguistics and semantics of the medical world and the fear and disempowerment they often evoke are to be reviled, what women really need is information. One "side" insulted and frightened me, while the other "side" glad-handed me. Had I had a more honest overview and better guidance, I might not be here at 43 feeling so lost. I wouldn't have assumed that I could trick my body into thinking I had all the time in the world. And I wouldn't feel shaken enough to accept insulting treatment.

Could you relate to her feelings?
