Find the Right Support
To say that you can heal yourself is sort of a misnomer. Your body can heal itself, but it does so best when you’re tended, nurtured, even loved by a health care provider who helps relax your nervous system, alleviates your fear and overwhelm, and shares your positive belief that you can get well. How can you find this kind of doctor? Don’t be afraid to interview your health care providers. Ask whether they believe you can get well and find someone optimistic, who will partner with you on your healing journey, help you utilize any tools from the Western medical toolbox that might help you, respects your intuition, cares for your wellbeing, and ensures you that you won’t be facing your illness alone. Do you have the right healers on your health care team?
