You are Your Doctor's Life Lesson


28 Tamuz, 5775

One of the lessons in EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge is that YOU are your own best medical advocate. 

Each of us understands our bodies and health symptoms with the accuracy of personal experience. Another word for personal experience is data, factual information that can - and in your case SHOULD - be used for reference and analysis.

You, your loved ones and friends, can dramatically influence your health care. Speak up, defend your choices with factual information, and with focused behavior. 

Work with medical professionals who respect the facts in your physical and/or emotional life, and respect you.

This TEDTalk demonstrates the wisdom of Owning Your Own Data.

Here's what it all comes down to: You are Your Doctor's Life Lesson. The life is yours. Teach your medical team about the realities in your life from temperatures shifts to food, weather, environmental and drug sensitivities. Your hunch, your insight about it all, is based on experience that can help all of you.
