Yes, it's true. Using logic and reasoning works at home, too, and not just at the doctor's office! What's even more amazing is, if you call up the doctor and say "Hey, the pills don't work but the cream does, and certain foods make the problem worse or better, whaddya think?" they'll probably find it interesting and have advice!
Just a tip, though: if you're taking meds for a serious fucking ailment, don't play mix 'n' match or decide on the fly to treat your problems by cutting out marshmallows or wearing more colorful pants. As much as geeks think we can hack and outsmart everything, there may be limits to our starchild crystal wonder powers. For example, I hear biochemistry is hard! And slow, painful death sucks! And reading the manual is an even better idea when you're doing tech support for your own viscera!
