I would like to share with you some “Food for Thought” in Choosing a Health Professional/Professionals. This can be a daunting and difficult challenge. But Vitally important when wanting to either improve your health or overcome a serious illness or disease. In my years of practice one of my major roles has been in supporting my clients with their role in the Health Quadrant to achieve the best results for their return to health.
Investment with the Quality of Health is your Greatest Asset in Mastering a Life of Optimal Health, Happiness & Vitality
The decision you make when choosing Health Professionals and People to support your health, I believe it is one, if not the most important decision you will ever make in your life. The only decision that is more important than choosing a health professional is in the understanding that what you do each and every day has an impact on your health, it can either be a positive impact or a negative one depending on the choices you make.
It is important that when choosing a health professional or health professionals to work with you in regards to your health is that it is a two way streak. Even though in the medical profession today, there are marvellous breakthroughs with assisting people with their health. The most important thing to remember is that the least damage you do to your health and the bigger the input you have to obtaining and maintaining a healthier you, will make the recovery from either a health crisis or maybe accident so much more successful.
Before I go into this any further with you I would like to just point out the IMPORTANCE of PRIVATE HEALTH COVER. I know when you are young, you don’t every envisage becoming so sick that you will need extended hospital stays or health support and you may well think that the Public system will look after me. Yes, they do the best they can with the limited funds that they have. However, if you want to have your own Doctor, Specialist, want to be able to stay in hospital with all the necessary tests and treatments needed to get you back on track, so you can once again become well. Then I beg you, don’t turn down PRIVATE HEALTH COVER, saying you CAN’T afford it or you hope you will NEVER need it. Commence this when you are young, have taken directly from your source of income and you will NEVER MISS IT.
Food for Thought when Choosing Health Professionals & Health Support
Ask Around (Get a second or even third opinion) – What is interesting that when it comes to choosing people to do building work to our homes –
We will ask our friends and colleagues for recommendations and do some inquiry into who is the right person for the job.
However when it comes to body there doesn’t seem to be the same concerns or level of enquiries made. If you are unwell you will just head off to a Doctor then then may be referred to a Specialist, without considering whether what this health professional is going to prescribe or do to you as to whether this is going to help you in becoming better or will it cause you further harm. It is common to just take what medication that is prescribed or have the operation that is mentioned without questioning the consequences or outcomes.
Let’s compare this to your car as you all like your car to run efficiently and don’t like the inconvenience of it breaking down. So as an example, what if you take out the motor will it work, if you put in a motor that isn’t the right one for the model of your car will it work, if you put in wrong fuel, oil, maybe include some sugar or water in the petrol tank just for good measure. How will this effect the running of your vehicle well your body is similar, except for one major factor that without the correct treatment your body will not heal and the chances of you becoming incapacitated and even dying have risen because of not doing your homework or asking questions.
Treating your Body with Respect for Optimal Results: What do you think might happen people spend years smoking cigarettes, taking drugs, drinking excessive quantities of alcohol, eating unhealthy food and engaging with unhealthy relationships. Even though as you may have seen with many people the body can be very resilient and seems to be able to take a great deal of abuse before it breaks down. However, when the time comes and diagnosis is made of a disease or health problem, the chances of recovery are minimal and any quality of life has be lost.
It is important for Therapies & Treatments Improve & Restore Function: Medically prescribed medications, that is the best way that I can describe them for you, they may provide some initial benefits, but when it comes to return of health long term, they can cause further health problems because of their side effects and having a detrimental effect on the body’s ability to function in unison.
Where Naturopathic medicine comes into it’s own. When treatments and medicine are prescribed within a Naturopathic Consultation and by a Qualified Naturopathic Practitioner, herbal, homeopathic and nutritional medicine work well hand in hand with prescribed medication. Depending on the condition and how intense the treatment needs to be Naturopathic medicine can be used on it’s own as well. Another important realm of Naturopathic medicine is supporting your return to health with counselling and lifestyle/health coaching necessary for implementing important changes and emotional balance.
It is Important to Remember to Work with people who know what they are doing and worked hand in hand with you and any other health professionals that you have chosen.

What you use on your body is as important as what you put on your Body
I have mentioned to you about the importance of what goes into your body and how this can have either a beneficial or detrimental effect on your health. It is also important to look at the products you use daily in the house and also personally on your body.
The products you use every day externally on your skin and in your hair. Whether that be in the shower to wash yourself, your hair we may well then go onto use some form of lotion or conditioner to assist with helping your skin and hair to feel and look better. Does it make sense to you if were to combine similar ingredients in these products so as to complement your health regime?
You may well ask how this works well everything you put on your skin or in your hair, is directly transported through your skin directly into our blood stream therefore the harmful chemicals and ingredients used to formulate the product, will build up and cause damage over time to your organs and tissue. On the other hand if you are to use pure organic products that are plant based but also with the additional benefits of the healing power of herbs, vitamins and essential oils this is not only going to have your skin and hair looking and feeling better but it will also provide health benefits protecting you rather than causing you harm.
