Are you confused by all of the conflicting medical advice in the media? What about all of the different diets out there? The Natural Medicine versus Conventional Medicine camps? Here’s my advice.
Find a healthcare practitioner that you trust. I have an integrative nurse practitioner that addresses health from a holistic perspective. She is also familiar with natural and conventional treatments.
Do your own research. You have information at your fingertips everyday. With that said, try to avoid misinformation by looking for reputable sources.
If something isn’t working, try something new. Sometimes it takes a little trial and error to find what works for you. Remember that everybody’s body is different. What works for me might not work for you.
Listen to your body. Remember—you are the only one that is living in your body (unless you have a little one growing inside of you). Sometimes you are the only one that will know when something is wrong or when something needs to change.
Don’t give up. If you are making even the smallest effort to improve your health, that is great! Just keep on going and give yourself some credit for your effort.
