3 People You Want on Your Healing Team!
We have been there.
Tired of hearing that you are living in a world of imagination and constantly being put down, feeling like the world is against you—Alone?
Staring into the eyes of your beautiful baby, knowing full well that the diagnosis she has just been stamped with can’t be her new normal, despite what the world around you continues to claim.
Where will you turn? Who’s on your side? Who can you trust?
Feeling like every step is an uphill battle, only to be ridiculed for each step you take.
Optimizing health is hard—but with a great team, it doesn’t have to be difficult. – Tweet this!
Chances to succeed drastically improve if one is backed up with an optimistic and knowledgeable team– those that are willing to give you the nudge when you want to quit.
There a 3 critical people that one should have in their support system. – Tweet this!
1. Your General Practitioner. In residency, physicians are taught very limited nutrition and stress management. Look for a practitioner that will look outside the box and is willing to learn with you. Find a practitioner who will not get annoyed when you ask questions or bring in your own research. Ideally, you want one who will respect you for taking such an active role in your healing and understands the importance of lifestyle in optimizing health.
a. Find one at www.functionalmedicine.org or www. aihm.org.
b. You could also go to one of the functional medicine laboratory websites, such as Genova Diagnostics, www.gdx.net, or Metametrix labs, www.meta metrix.com, and find a practitioner who is regularly using their services. That is a great way to locate someone who is actively practicing functional medicine.
2. Your Health Team. Once you have found that doctor (yay!!!), now build your circle with other health practitioners you need, such as acupuncturists, naturopaths, psychologists, nutritionists, energy healers, and massage therapists.
3. Your Accountability Partner. By having an accountability partner, the uphill battle becomes more attainable. Find someone who will not be critical, to hold you accountable for the changes you are hoping to make. Offer to do the same for him or her, in return.
With an incredible team, healing now appears attainable.
You are not alone! Your children are blessed to have you! They need us and this team on their side, because they are worth it!
Who got your family’s back?
