Health providers, when working with clients and patients who have received a less than optimal diagnosis, have an opportunity to introduce the idea of creating wellness instead of focusing on treating disease. Choosing to make lifestyle changes can be viewed as an opportunity instead of as a deprivation. It is an opportunity to discuss the concept of going upstream to identify root causes rather than focus on a disease or illness. It is an opportunity to help the patient identify and explore how the patient arrived at this point.
*Explore the concept of functional medicine and going upstream to explore root causes instead of focusing on treating disease.
*Explore the concept of choice and lifestyle change in creating wellness and health by taking small steps.
*Explore how lifestyle choices affect how we feel physically and emotionally using a symptom diary.
