Trust Yourself

When people come into my office, they often ask for advice on what to do, what to eat, what choices to make which are given them by another healthcare provider. They want advice on who to see and what other types of alternatives to seek out.

While I can talk to them about the things that I know, many of these things are outside the scope of my practice. I can help them clarify their thinking but ultimately I always remind them to trust their gut. They know which practitioners will be helpful for them, but often they don’t listen to themselves, preferring to listen to friends or advertisements. They may think too much about their decisions and not allow themselves to feel the options that are correct for them.

Deep down, we all likely know those things that are best for us. However, it can be very scary to consider them if they involve large scale change. Trusting our gut and our instincts can lead us to the people and the healing modalities that will work the best for our body. Remember to trust yourself.
