Believe it or not, one of the most common complaints that we hear in our WholeBody Health Clinic is ‘I just don’t know what to do next”.
In our modern society, we don’t have to look very far to find someone telling us what we should NOT be doing. But there is a big gap in the health care system between acute care and recovery when it comes to people not responding the way the text books say we should. What do we do when all the surgery options are not working, when the recovery period is supposed to be complete and pain relief injections are no longer working.
It is extremely frustrating (and very expensive) when we look to find health salvation through endless appointments with a multitude of health practitioners only to find that they refer us on to other, even more specialised practice with seemingly no improvement. For many clients walking through our doors that have been coping with a chronic illness or pain, this is exactly what they have been struggling with.
There are many wonderful practitioners out there who are very capable in their area of expertise. But do they really see you? Mental, physical and emotional health – we know that they are all linked, but why is it so hard to find someone else that understands that?
Looking at health on all of these levels is how start to take back control and why oriental and complimentary therapies such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture and certain forms of yoga is often the answer.
With a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a western medical understanding of how our body works and remedial yoga self-help techniques, you can start to play a more active role in achieving and maintaining mental and physical health.
