Taking health into your own hands
Choosing the right healthcare provider is important. Dr. Lise Alschuler stresses the importance of trust and relationship when exploring natural medicine, and explains how picking a practitioner is really creating a partnership.
As somebody who is thinking about exploring natural medicine, naturopathic medicine in addition to or instead of conventional care, I would encourage you to approach that exploration with a certain degree of skepticism. It’s your body and it’s your health, and you need to care take that with some level of responsibility. To put your health in somebody else’s hands, I would encourage you to make sure you feel confident in the provider whom you’re seeing, that you bring your questions and that you’re satisfied with the answers and that you engage in the process, that it’s a partnership between you and your practitioner. The more of you you bring to that relationship, the more you’ll take back with you.
