10 Crucial Questions Your Doctor Should Ask You (But Probably Doesn’t)

Doctor

We all know what it’s like to fill out detailed forms about our medical history at the doctor’s office. But is your doctor asking you the questions he or she really needs in order to get a good read on your health? At the Whole Health Medicine Institute, the training program my team runs for doctors, nurses, acupuncturists, energy healers and other health care providers, we teach healers how to ask patients the right questions. But in case your doctor isn’t asking you the questions that might illuminate potential root causes of your illness, try asking yourself these questions.

From Cancer Patient To Respant

Doctor and patient

Unfortunately doctors and health professionals, in general, do not study success. We are far more likely to consider an unexpected recovery to be due to the treatment or a spontaneous remission. However, I have learned from my experience with patients and by asking them, “Why didn’t you die when you were supposed to?” that they always had a story to tell. I can recall, as an intern, realizing that the seniors, with hip fractures, who were noisy and demanding didn’t develop pneumonia and die while the submissive, quiet seniors who never raised their voice or caused a problem had a much higher mortality rate.

In Search Of A Cure For Cancer

In Search Of A Cure For Cancer

Until recently, any recovery from serious disease not involving medical intervention was usually dismissed as little more than “spontaneous remission,” generally defined as the unexpected disappearance of a particular ailment by inexplicable means. These days, however, there appears to be a growing willingness to re-examine such dramatic changes in an individual’s health as potential harbingers of how even “the emperor of all maladies,” as cancer is described by author Siddhartha Mukherjee, might be treated.

10 Feng Shui Ways To Turn Your Kitchen Into A Wellness Center!

Feng Shui Kitchen

My kitchen is always a vertible pharmacy.  My actual medicine cabinet is mainly essential oils and homeopathic remedies. The transition was very fast because I am such a champion of preventative medicine since I can’t take a lot of Western remedies.  I’m not opposed to medicine in a classic sense… I’ve just found that there are so many more ways to stay well than there are ways to cure things like colds and aches and pains.

It's All About Heart

Heart Disease

By Leslie Vandever

It steals the lives of more women each year than other common diseases, including breast and other cancers. It kills more women than domestic violence, more women than automobile accidents, and more women than injuries and infections. What’s worse, this life-thief frequently strikes without warning.

Redefining The Mind-Body Connection

Redefining The Mind-Body Connection

As trailblazing as it may seem, the field of mind-body medicine may actually be stuck in the mud, trying in vain to extract itself from the idea that matter is the be-all and end-all of existence.

Where Survival Is The Question - Men Are The Weaker Sex

Survival

This article is written for two groups. Number one the women who need to be educated about the behavior of men in a crisis and two, the men, who are willing to change and go beyond the traditional self-destructive masculine behavior. Most men do not handle emotional problems well. Too often they desert their wives and girl friends in time of crisis. I know some husbands who drive their wives to our support groups and then sit in the parking lot waiting for them. They are chauffeurs and not soul mates. They have a great deal of difficulty sharing feelings and joining a team, which is something women do as a reflex in times of stress. Men are more likely to take a fight-or-flight approach. If they can’t fight it or fix it, they take off. Be prepared. You are not the problem. The problem is their discomfort, or their dis-ease with disease.

And now she’s making headlines again for having her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed for the same reason.
