Engaging Your Doctor

Engaging Your Doctor In Your Care

Your doctor is your main disease care provider and it’s your job to get them aligned with how you want your mental health addressed. Make no mistake, they address disease, not wellness or prevention, or reversal. If medication and polypharmacy are not the approach you want to take, you have to get into a conversation with your provider to work on exploring how to change the approach.

It’s time to think outside the box, so you get the support you need.

It’s best to come to that discussion armed with information that your doctor can use to help you. Before your visit with your doctor, go to pubmed.com and put your issues into the keyword/search box. You may find that you have to use different combinations of words to get the search results/answers you’re looking for. Once you’re finished, you’ll have a list of articles to read and then show and discuss with your doctor.

Engaging Your Doctor In Your Care

Load a few of these on your phone and bring the links as well as any YouTube videos that you like to your doctor visit and ask your doctor’s opinion. Ask your doctor to theorize with you what could be the mechanism underneath your problem. Ask them to think outside the box. This approach isn’t just about adding a prescription, but more about addressing your whole brain, body, and environmental connection to get you closer to a solution that works.
