Be Your Own Lab Rat

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.

Be patient. Unfortunately, your health probably won’t change overnight. It might take awhile to see changes, especially if you are changing your diet or trying new health supplements.

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.

  1. I am trying to be healthier by getting to sleep on time so I can have adequate sleep each night. I feel so much more clear-headed when I’ve had a good night’s sleep, and it just FEELS healthier.

  2. Yes, we need to learn to listen to our body, only then we will be able to follow the right dietary habits suitable for us. So essentially we are our own lab rats.
