Usually when we hear someone say “there’s nothing else we can do” it’s probably not good news. This is what the doctor says to patients when preparing them for the worst-case scenario. At least that’s true when you are watching a movie or medical drama on TV.
Let’s flip the script. In my perfect world, these would be the words that we WANT to hear from our doctors.
We can set the scene:
Patient: What did my results say?
Doctor: There is nothing else we can do… because you are healthy and your body is taking care of it!
What am I trying to get at here? I think we rely too much on doctors to determine our health and well-being. Don’t get me wrong, if you are seriously ill or have an emergency, doctors can save your life. But doctors get too much credit. Healing and wellness come from the doctor within you!
No matter how many years of school we have or the degrees we have compiled, we can’t intellectually mend a simple paper cut. But your body does that and more. Sure, we can put a band-aid on it but your body creates new cells and does the actual healing.
Have a great week,
