Our culture is obsessed with following healthcare trends. When it comes to trends, people often follow them regardless of whether or not they make sense. This is true with things like trying to be on point with the latest fashion trends or always feeling like you need to buy the newest and coolest smartphone. Buying into trends is not only seen when it comes to things like fashion and music, but it also happens in the world of healthcare. When it comes to health, many common problems (such as attention issues or a strep infection) are actually normalized because parents just assume that every child will deal with these issues at some point. But just because something is common does not mean it’s normal and as parents and healthcare providers, we need to question these “trends”.
When we become so accepting of these healthcare trends, we begin to narrow a path of resolution. Instead of looking at multiple perspectives, we are trapped into a way of thinking specific to what mainstream or traditional healthcare is telling us. However, I believe resolution is possible and that if you give the body what it needs you can turn many things around. In this episode I share some case studies of patients I have worked with personally and how I approached their unique needs. It is never my goal to take away from traditional healthcare. I believe there is a time and place for it, but my desire is to see healthcare professionals collaborating and sharing multiple perspectives in order to really help our patients gain healing and success.
