By the time you finish watching this video on patient advocacy you’ll have a clear idea about how much you can be involved in promoting your own health care. Yes, medical emergencies occur when it’s necessary to take orders from the doctor, no questions asked. But in most cases when you visit a naturopath, like Dr. Megan Saunders in this video, you will be able to be your own advocate. As Dr. Saunders says, she is a tool in your tool box and you can use her knowledge and advice as it best suits you.
Say you’ve been diagnosed with a specific disease and need to take prescription drugs. By becoming a Learn True Health member you can learn how the drugs work, what the side effects are, and what to watch out for. There may be a nutrient depletion as a result of taking these drugs so you’ll need to know what supplements to take so you won’t be losing ground. Is it worth it to take the drugs? Find out if there is a natural health option. All this is available with the Learn True Health online membership. You can watch illness specific videos and participate in a live question and answer session to help you with your specific concerns. Become your own health advocate!
