Sticking to Your Treatment Plan
You’ve visited a Holistic doctor. You’ve heard her suggestions and changed the way you live, the way you eat, the way you prioritise your health. And it’s worked. You’ve been feeling a lot more vibrant lately. Your energy levels are at their peak.
And then you fall off the wagon.
We don’t blame you; it’s very easy to slip back into old habits. The convenience of waking up later than usual; foregoing meditation; falling for temptations around us – you started that one time your co-worker celebrated her promotion, but suddenly you can’t stop anymore. All these little details snowball until you wake up one morning … and there you are. Back at square one again.
“I feel improvement when I follow instructions from you — whether lifestyle, medication or treatment. It is only when I deviate that I start to lose balance and feel problems. When I go back to recommendations, I finally feel my health stabilize.”
The effectiveness of your treatment plan depends on whether you follow it and practice it. Of course, it will stop working when you stop following it — when patients don’t follow the doctor’s recommendations, they always compromise the effectiveness of the treatments they are receiving. The path to wellness is not straight. It’s also not set in stone, so we understand how easy it is to lose your way. However, this doesn’t mean that there’s no moving forward with your healing journey.
Remember the benefits. Remember the feeling of being in control of your health. It’s a wonderful feeling that goes beyond the momentary pain of not being able to try out fast food or a new restaurant. It goes beyond sleeping in for an extra 30 minutes when you could start your morning with Vinyasa. Do not let a momentary lapse divert you from your Holistic journey. At Holistic Healing Medical Centre, we’re here to support you on your personal journey, every step of the way.
