Knowing Your Healthcare Practitioner's Health Philosophy in Kailua-Kona

One of the greatest impediments to total wellness in Kailua-Kona may well occur when you, the patient, are not fully aware of your health care provider's health philosophy. Every practitioner has a philosophy. Some believe in a more natural, non-invasive approach, while others seem to favor pharmaceuticals or procedures. Whatever the case may be, it is critical that you clear the air before you sign on as a patient.

Think what would happen if you wanted to have a natural birth but you found out well into your pregnancy that the obstetrical physician you were seeing had one of the highest c-section rates in the state.

At this point, you may want to find another doctor which could be difficult. Similarly, if you were seeking natural rehabilitation for a knee injury and your orthopedic doctor's favorite treatment was surgery, this would not be a good match either.

Keep in mind that not all health practitioners are going to be on the same page as you. Remember, one of the worst mistakes you can make is not to have your own philosophy of health which empowers you to make the best decisions possible. Your philosophy comes from educating yourself, being aware of your body along with its needs and capabilities. Health is not a passive road, you must participate and be aware.

This is especially paramount in today's world of big business farming ruling our food supply and pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and the government ruling our medical choices. Sometimes, you even have to fight for what you believe is best for your health, especially if your philosophy does not line up with your practitioner's philosophy.
