WHO IS YOUR HEALTH PRACTITIONER?
In the event that you have an adverse health condition, who are you going to see to get health advice? I supposed there are several options. It may be a medical doctor, a nurse, a chiropractor, a nutritionist, an herbalist, a homeopath, a naturopath, a physiologist, a reflexologist, a massage therapist or perhaps many others. You may want to think about this for a while. If some health condition came upon you, what are you going to do? Just because a person has a stethoscope hanging around their neck does not necessarily mean they are going to give you the correct or proper advice.
You can receive information from friends or family about a practitioner that may be very aggressive and helpful or on the other hand they may have many acronyms following their name but limited in scope of how to help you. You should seek out these practitioners now before a condition exists in which you don't know how to handle.
Make your list of practitioners and share it with your family. Unfortunately, often an M.D. is taking patients in volume just to refer them to another M.D. This churning event is all too familiar. A "one size fits all" type of practitioner probably does not exist anymore.They are going to send you to another place. You need to determine if your health will last long enough to get a definitive answer. After spending much time, effort and money being "churned", you may discover that this whole referral system was in futility. Get someone lined up that you can trust and you know has a good reputation without sending you to other practitioners for second, third, fourth, opinions, etc. After all, you went to the first trusted person to receive answers to your issue without the runaround.
