Ask yourself: the healthcare community always teaches: ‘do not get involved in the patients’ personal life. You are here to help them with the situation at hand. Do not ask about other situations, since that is not what they are asking.’
No wonder many patients are not healing, physicians are working to ‘fix’ them, to change the outcomes, to remedy the situation presented in front of them. Ahhh, but is that always what we are asking them when we go into their office? A pain in the head may start as a headache medication, then later an MRI to rule out cancer, then more medications to subdue the pain. That is what you are asking when you visit them, correct?
Get me out of pain. Did you define, or even know what your pain in your head is? Could it be a true medical issue, or could it be an emotional, lifestyle, physical or dental pain?
There are so many options. But do not forget, you are seeing the specific person, who is trained to answer the questions you bring for the specific issue, they are not trained to ask outside those parameters, they cannot, they are not to get involved, they are not trained to treat those issues, therefore, do not test or ask for what you do not know how to treat or refer for. This is the rule. You do not go to the stomach doctor and ask him to give you birth control pills, not going to happen. Not only will you not get the prescription but you will not even have the conversation.
Stop, think, and ask questions, even if you think they may be the right or the wrong ones, just ask what jumps into your head. Intuition lives in the unconscious mind, let it breath.
