I just love that quote you see on the wall above. Thomas Edison was such a visionary and I admire him so. Today things are certainly heading in the direction with more people in that manner, that Mr.s Edison predicted. I am guessing I am one of those heading that way!
I am starting a new journey series I will be sharing at times here in my blog. I want to share my journey here locally in Raleigh North Carolina as I learn more about alternative health means. I started sharing some of my health journey here at my blog a bit ago. I shared my story that I am BRCA 2 Positive. I have to be very proactive against cancer as we all should really. So in being proactive against cancer & other health issues it has led me down the path of discovering other ways to take care of myself. But I have only just begun. I am like a sponge for knowledge right now. There is so much out there to learn on the topic. It has led me to Ideal Life Style Advocates to help me some with doing just that. I have met so far with Dr. Mark Niemchak. The first meeting was to answer in depth health questions. Some to be honest I thought was very funny but he assured me that it all plays a part in the bigger picture of my health. The second trip was to do some light testing to pin point some things. The next meeting Dr. Niemchak will be sharing with me a plan he developed just for me.
At Ideal Life Style Advocates they bring 32 years of clinical experience in life style medicine. They look at the whole picture not just one thing concerning you. They truly believe there is more to personal care than prescribed traditional medicines and doctor reports. They come along side your situation and take a more holistic approach to everything not just one issue you may be having. It may be something else causing that one thing! In a world where you feel like just another number at most doctor offices, Dr. Niemchak took the time to truly listen to me so far. He seemed very warm & genuine. He was very encouraging & knowledgeable in his fields. His office manager Judi is just the ray of sunshine any office needs! It was nice to finally talk with someone about my health that seemed to actually care for my own interests, rather than push more drugs on me & radioactive testing as I was to do every six months,that may not even be necessary. I have had issues with doctors in western medicine not really listening to how I feel about my own body and seem to be looking out for Big Brother Pharma or their own pockets. I am not their guinea pig and another number to give them more cash flow. I saw how their ways did not help my mother who died. She died an awful death of Ovarian Cancer and I will tell you I think the regular way did not fully help her situation. There is other ways and I want to take the time to learn and equip myself with as much knowledge as I can so I can be proactive to make better choices for myself. When my mom died I did not know there was any other ways of helping your health situations, I used to believe everything doctors say to do. I want to do what is right for me and not be stuck in a cookie cutter system that has failed to many times. I am not saying that it always fails just in my case I have seen around me to many fails. Now Dr.Niemchak is not out to replace your doctor or knock what you feel safe doing with what your doctor says. I am just speaking back there on my personal thoughts. But he is there to come along side you and help enhance your regime. And who knows some of us who have this kind of help may not even need the old regime! As Mr. Edison said " the doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs but will rather cure & prevent disease with nutrition." I think I might of found one of those doctors Mr. Edison for spoke of, we simply shall see. So stay tuned for what I discover next with this new journey & my thoughts on it all.
