If you’re currently stuck in a corporate drain, you’re likely feeling like your to-do list and demands on you are neverending. And all while feeling below par. You’re burnt out, otherwise you wouldn’t have found your way here to this email.
You’re likely in one of these 3 states:
✅ You know you need to get to a health practitioner pronto but putting it off because you’re not sure who to go to.
✅ You’re already working with someone but not feeling truly understood about what’s going on for you.
✅ You have found someone who is helping you, but it doesn’t feel like the whole holistic picture and you’re looking for more.
One thing I know for sure is that the times of handing your power over to a mainstream doctor and expecting them to fix your symptoms with a prescription drug are over.
You are being called to take greater control over your own health in partnership with your doctor. You know your body better than anyone, and as a starting point it is extremely important to find a doctor who will listen carefully to what you are experiencing and feeling and not discount this in favour of simply offering standard medical responses.
You don’t have to get drawn into the mainstream way of doing things. Find a person whose way you truly align with and co-create your journey of healing together.
When you ask better quality questions of your doctor, you will invariably get better quality answers. Do your research, understand your symptoms as best you can, and find a doctor or natural health practitioner who is in alignment with looking at the whole of you.
To help you with this, here are some suggestions on the kinds of questions to ask your doctor to help establish if they are the right fit for you. Print this list out and keep it on you.
Questions to ask your doctor
Note that you may need to book a double appointment to create the time needed to ask these questions:
✨ Are you willing to work with me in understanding my full hormonal picture?
✨ Do you recognise the term “adrenal fatigue”?
✨ Do you recognise testing options such as 24-hour cortisol tests through saliva and/or urine?
✨ Are you willing to work in conjunction with my naturopath or functional medicine practitioner?
✨ Are you open to me sharing my understanding and learnings on adrenal fatigue from my research and what I have learned from other practitioners?
✨ Are you open to a conversation regarding:
🔥 Not prescribing an antidepressant for low mood without first understanding if this is a knock-on effect from a hormonal imbalance?
🔥 Considering whether any thyroid issues may be resulting from the effects of adrenal fatigue?
🔥 Understanding my more restorative exercise needs during this time?
These types of questions are going to set you up to be in an empowered place of knowing whether your doctor is on the same page as you.
