In this solo episode, I share with you my top tips and strategies for finding a health practitioner who will really support you. I have been receiving more and more requests from listeners wanting referrals and resources for practitioners in their local areas. One thing I’ve found over the years from doing well over 150 interviews with health professionals is that you are best served when you find a practitioner who has taken a specialized interest in the area you need support in.
What it comes down to is that you want to work with someone whose perspective aligns with yours. Whether you see a medical doctor, a functional practitioner, a naturopath or a physiotherapist, you have the right to work with someone who will work with you and support you to achieve optimal health. I show you how to step in the driver’s seat and find a practitioner who shares your perspective and will support the decisions you make about your health.
