WHAT IT TAKES TO SOLVE YOUR OWN HEALTH ISSUES
When it comes down to it, your health is largely up to you. Whether you like it or not, it's not something that someone else can do for you, doctor included. Couple this with the fact that in many ways the medical community has barely changed in MY LIFETIME (we seem to be forever stuck in a time warp of IMAGING, BLOOD WORK, and THE BIG FIVE), and you can start to see just how large a dilemma this can be for way too many people. Proper diagnosis and treatment are all about having valid information. Because doctors now have oceans of information at their fingertips, this should make figuring out and solving our problems easier than ever. Unfortunately, that's not always the case.
Far too often people are given "bucket diagnoses" such as FIBROMYALGIA, ARTHRITIS, or DJD (usually a code word for old age) and then treated with the STANDARD FARE. My goal is to help you help keep yourself off of the MEDICAL MERRY-GO-ROUND, or at the very least, slow it down (for those who have spent a significant amount of time riding, it requires no explanation). Here are a few things to think about that could prove helpful in the process of solving your own problem(s).
