I cannot tell a lie, but don't ask my wife if that's true cause she would give you a different story...
No, what I'm specifically referring to is your health.
And how openness and honesty can completely change your health.
What am I talking about?
Wait, wait, wait...
Before I truly begin, I MUST mention: I have full and upstanding respect for the medical providers that utilize care different then my own. Whether it's holistic (person centered) or allopathic (disease centered), healthcare is a tough field to work in.
In fact, I happen to be married to THE BEST NURSE at the University hospitals.
(some may disagree with that ^, but YOU are wrong)
SO... When I say healthcare is in trouble, it's not with malice, but with a hope that a path of recovery can be set forth.
BUT GUESS WHAT? YOU get to be a part of it to!
And here is where the Honesty sets in...
Within our bursting-at-the-seams medical system, things get lost.
"what exactly does my diagnosis mean"
"why was I prescribed this pill"
"why is NOTHING Changing with MY HEALTH STATUS."
Not to anyone's fault except a leaky system where important information falls through the cracks.
YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, believe it or not, your healthcare provider has answers!
Things that make sense to us, are clear as mud to YOU!
There is LITERALLY research that shows the more you as the patient knows, the better the healing process will go. SERIOUSLY.
This is why I place so. much. emphasis. on my recommendation conference. When I get the opportunity to show you the VERY comprehensive exam results revealing negative effects to your health, I ask for questions, and strive for understanding, because my plan is in place for YOU!
***One more thing***
WHEN you ask questions now, if you still aren't getting answers that you NEED, ask others involved with your care. I know for a FACT, nurses can be just as knowledgeable about what you are going through (at least one I know is...)
Still then, if answers don't come, look for other health care professionals that will help.
I know, Dr. Google is quick, but it is great at showing you typicals:
I can't speak on behalf of anyone but myself, BUT, I want to see change happen.
I want to be a part of honest and educated care. So even if you just want to ask a question, stop in and I'll be here to help.
