I am a Natural Health Practitioner and many of my clients come to me frustrated with the results they have received from conventional medicine. Fortunately the type of client I attract is one who feels their health and well-being is their responsibility and are searching for answers to help their body do the healing, which by the way, is the ONLY one way healing takes place. Healing can be facilitated by others but ultimately your body has to do the healing.
But then there are some clients that lament about the side effects they are experiencing from the medications that have been prescribed by their doctor and feel they “have to” follow the doctor’s advice as if his word is law. Rather than following the doctor’s advice blindly remember that no one knows you better than you and you are in charge of your body and what goes into it. Doctors are there to give advice – just like a financial adviser or any other such counsellor – but you are the boss. The doctor works for you!
