The doctor will see you now….But for how long?
As a nurse practitioner it pains me to say this, but you have experienced it and I have experienced it. Usually, you only have a few precious minutes to tell your healthcare provider what’s bothering you.
A study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine found that the majority of doctors don’t even ask patients the purpose of their visit. Crazy, right? They look at your chart and have formulated an opinion without first hearing your story. Even when doctors do give patients the opportunity to explain their issue, they interrupt them in 11 seconds on average! This is what the study showed.
I hope that my patients never felt that I was not listening to them as I bucked the system and would make a point to schedule patients for extra long appointments, just so I could hear their story. If you are not aloud the time to express yourself, their are so many clues we as clinicians could miss. I always said that figuring out what is wrong requires 90% listening and 10% physical exam and testing to validate your suspicions or rule them out.
There is no doubt the healthcare system has failed all of us in many ways…patients and health practitioners alike.
We are all getting a bum deal. During every conventional medical visit I always have said their are four parties in that exam room…… the patient, the health practitioner, the government and the insurance company. The last two are dictating way too much what we as health practitioners can do. That is also why a year ago, I made the scary decision to leave my guaranteed salary working in a large healthcare system to start a virtual/telemedicine practice. This allows me to spend the time with you that is needed to hear your story.
There are many that feel the way I do and they feel stuck and frustrated. This does not sit right with me and it certainly did not sit right with investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker, Jonathan Otto either. Like me, Jonathan believes you should know ALL your options when it comes to your health.
Over 55 of the word’s leading natural medicine doctors and other natural health experts will share–at no charge–what they’ve learned from decades of practice and thousands of success stories about the true healing power of plants. I can’t wait to hear what they have to say!
During this important event, you’ll discover the best natural health remedies and plant-based medicines on the plant today.
Did you realize that many natural medicines can be as effective as the toxic drugs Big Pharma offers?
Here are a couple of examples of what you and I will be learning during this event:
A 2014 clinical study published in the journal, Phytotherapy Research, found that an extract of a common spice performed equally well as a leading antidepressant drug in patients with major depressive disorder. The Journal of Rheumatology published a randomized double-blind study of the Amazonian vine, called cat’s claw, for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers found that this natural remedy reduced joint swelling and pain by more than 50 percent compared to placebo.
You’ll hear about many such natural and plant-based remedies with strong scientific backing. As a bonus, they’re safer and far less expensive than the toxic drugs Big Pharma manufacture.
This is your chance to reclaim your health and it costs you nothing. During this life-saving docu-series you will get complete details on how natural medicines from around the world treat root cause of diabetes, autoimmune disease, arthritis, depression, anxiety, obesity and even cancer.
