Following on from last time, today we’re going to look at why you need to use a range of approaches once you have obtained a medical diagnosis. And why this is an essential element when you want to make a full recovery and get on with living life to the full.
This looks at the importance of:
- doing your own due diligence
- getting a second opinion
- asking questions
- becoming open to an integrative approach
- that it’s important for you to take charge of your own recovery
When your health is out-of-whack, an all-round-programme of getting you back into feeling vibrant so you can engage with life again is so important, because it will lead you into the next chapter of your life feeling fully energised, engaged and active.
Having obtained a medical diagnosis you need to begin by doing some due diligence, which can begin with getting more than one traditional opinion, don’t just take the first doctor’s word, especially if it doesn’t resonate with you. Feeling satisfied with what you’re hearing is the first step into recovery.
And dare I say it sometimes doctors get it wrong, they’re both human and work to incredibly tight deadlines, mistakes are inevitable.
Seek out more than one opinion, which is even more important when it comes to dealing with a terminal prognosis. Do as much research as you can online, offline, talk to people, get informed, give it your full attention.
This could well take you into the realms of alternative health, where it’s challenging to know what’s what, especially when it’s all new.
Yet again make enquiries, get recommendations, have conversations. Here’s a list of why you need more than one approach to get back into optimum health and why:
- When your energy is knocked out a range of approaches are needed
- This saves you time all round
- It takes the pressure off your doctor because it’s your problem, not theirs
- A diagnosis (as mentioned) helps everyone
- This hands you the reigns of bringing yourself back into good health
- You have to show up because no one else can do it for you
- Begin noticing the ebb and flow of your symptoms and use a diary to track them
One really easy way of testing both fields, the allopathic and the alternative is to have conversations, and get a feel for the practitioner, if you resonate with everyone you’re involving in your hand-picked health team, you’re far more likely to make a full and thorough recovery, and you’ll reach a point where it becomes enjoyable. This is about priorities.
Helping your health experts help you
Communication is a key component of returning to good health, as you re-educate and make some long-term tweaks in your own attitudes and behaviours that lead into lasting change.
It’s very old-school to accept a poor bedside manner, make sure you work with people you can talk to.
Look out for the indicators, such as any unwillingness to discuss your programmes of treatment, you must be able to ask as many questions as you need, and invariably you only have a small window in which to do this.
Asking open questions
Go prepared with all you need to know, ask well-thought-out questions. You can expect a calm, open manner that enables you to have a confident conversation back and forth.
Ultimately it’s about your transition back into wellness through an all-round programme of approaches, where every detail counts.
And although you may well be managing this yourself, to ensure you get all you need in every which-way, you’re looking out for strong indicators.
Look to recruit the sorts of practitioners who are prepared to work collectively towards your transition back into full health. This includes the full support of what you need from family and friends, and don’t be afraid to ask them, they often want to but are looking for your direction. It’s vital that you take charge!
All roads lead to Rome
It’s about getting you back into the best quality of health you can achieve, through a strong range of positive attitudes, and methods of working. These should be transparent and accountable.
Good health is reached through a number of methods among which you can include:
- The bio-chemical help your doctor provides through, tests, examinations, intervention, a drugs regime, and an intention of reducing everything to zero over time
- The physical help your body needs to move itself by using a favourite programme, or something newly designed for you
- The nutritional support your body needs and any adaptations needed, albeit temporary or otherwise
- The emotional change needed in order to adapt yourself to a new understanding of what is happening, how any challenges came about, and making it be different going forward
Making substantial change brings it’s own rewards and is often left until it’s long overdue, maybe you’re feeling ready to do things a little differently in order to restore your health once and for all.
In conclusion taking your health into your own hands is an excellent place to start when it comes to being in control of your desired outcome. Recovering good health does require that you start looking into using a range of approaches constructively.
