How doctors and patients do harm
The New York Times (blog)    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dr. Otis Brawley says it makes him furious when he hears "politicians and pundits" assert that American healthcare is the best in the world. The statement may be true for the rich, he says, but "it's not a great place to be sick if you are poor and uninsured and want consistent, basic care." But as you nod your head in agreement, be warned that Dr. Brawley doesn't place all the blame on insurance companies, hospitals and doctors. He also blames patients who have bought into the notion that more care — more treatment, more screening, more scans, more drugs — is better care. More

Healing With Language: Recognizing modal operators
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One of the best indicators of what you can expect from patients is their use of modal operators. Modal operators modify verbs and indicate a person's way of thinking. Modal operators of necessity — such as can't, won't, must, have to, need to — indicate limited choices. Modal operators of possibility — such as can, will, may, might, choose — indicate options.

When a patient uses a modal operator of necessity, reframe the statement using a modal operator of possibility:

Patient: I can't see how this treatment is going to help me. 
Reframe: If you could see it, what might it look like? 

When reframing might seem argumentative, ask about the person's model of the world. 

Patient: This treatment won't work. 
Question: How do you know? 

Listen for the underlying fear and present options and outcomes in terms of possibility.

The secret behind ayurvedic body types
Alternative Medicine Zone    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The main reason that you should try to learn about various ayurvedic body types is that a number of different body types can digest certain types of foods. You should try to avoid certain foods if your body cannot handle it because your body will end up rejecting something that it does not agree with.
