How not to “watch and wait”

“Let’s watch and wait”


Who has ever heard these words from their doctor after getting less than best results on blood work, an ultrasound or MRI?

The ‘watching’ is a good thing. The ‘waiting’ is another story….

It can be very stressful when something is going on with your health that maybe you don’t quite understand  or are unsure of. It’s like being a sitting duck.

In the days in-between, know that there are things that you can do.

I’ll give a couple of examples:

A baby in breech position at 32 weeks: there’s acupuncture, moxabustion and homeopathics that can be administered that are safe and effective to help encourage baby to turn.

Elevated ferritin that’s within normal limits: after ensuring a thorough investigation into what may be contributing to this, focusing on diet, supplementation and herbs to support and protect the organs.

You don’t need to be a sitting duck.

Naturally, there’s always hope
