If you’re like many out who were surprised to discover that something was actually wrong with your health, this podcast is for you. The question “How do you know if you are healthy?” when you feel fine is admittedly a good one. Using how you feel as the barometer might not be the most effective and best way to answer that question.
We can probably agree that your body is an amazing work of brilliance and will do whatever it can to see you thrive. Subtle imbalances or issues may not be immediately noticeable. It could take you years to realize that your Vitamin D level is low, for example. And you might only become aware of it because a doctor thought to test for it… not because you felt particularly bad.
The point here is to underscore that a state of disease (or a body that’s at dis-ease) doesn’t typically happen overnight. It’s not like likely that you woke up one morning with an autoimmune disease… in fact research suggests that it was slowly brewing for years unchecked. That’s why it’s important to do this one thing I’ll talk on the podcast today about that will give you more hardcore data so that you can more accurately and honestly answer that question.

How to Be a Better Patient was a genuine eye opener for me. I’m pretty committed to my healing path with my current functional medicine practitioner but I’ve never actually thought about healing from this perspective. I do “get” this now and realize that this “attitude” was me in regards to conventional Western Medicine and that I may have actually been sabataging myself in these actions. Thank you for this information.
