Have you heard of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
? Maybe you haven’t read it, but I’m sure you know the premise. A miser ends up being visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. They show him the decisions he has made and the actions he has taken in the past and present, and then detail his future if he does continues on this path. After being visited by the three ghosts, Scrooge changed his outlook on life, and began to make the necessary alterations in his lifestyle to achieve this. All because he was educated and took the time to reflect.
Did you know that a Naturopathic Doctor will do essentially the same thing for your health? It’s in a different order, and there usually aren’t any ghosts, but it’s pretty much the same.
First, I take a detailed look at your present health. Where are you now? How is your quality of life? Do you have pain? Can you sleep at night? Do you eat healthy foods? How is your stress? What are you doing every day?
Secondly, I look at your health history. What things have happened in the past that are reflected in your current state of health? What behaviours and habits have you learned? What medications and supplements have you taken? What has worked? What did not work? Have you had any surgeries? How is your family’s health?
Lastly, I look at your future health. Where will your health end up should you continue your current path? We talk about risk factors for diseases, and how your current health concerns will likely evolve. I help to educate you on the disease process, and help you reflect on your life, your health, and your expectations.
I help you set goals. Then I set you up with a plan to help you change your lifestyle, and help get you back on track to live the life you want to lead. I won’t make you do anything you don’t want to do but I will guide you and show you your options. I’ll be your cheerleader when you need me to be, and bring you back on track if you drift off course. All the while, giving you complete control of your actions.
