#1: You allow me to enter into your health story and ultimately into your life story.
#2: You strongly voice your expectations of “our health teamwork”, you passionately need + want change.
#3: You quickly learn that I am wired like a Naturoapthic Doctor yet excited like a cheerleader.
#4: You realize that this type of healthcare really is the perfect balance between health and care.
#5: You gain clarity on where you are, where you want to be and what the road map ahead looks like.
#6: You understand the theoretical-sens that every year of “feeling off” requires 1 month of “being on” with respect to self-care, self-work, herbal regime, determination to do the magic outside the treatment room.
#7: You smile at the fact that I ask you to stick out your tongue – and use the appearance of your tongue as a physical exam tool to confirm and consider your health status.
#8: You are intrigued by us investigating your “everything is normal” blood work. Just because the values are in the reference range doesn’t always equate to normal and fine.
#9: You catch the cheerleader virus – you become empowered and inspired to be the best possible version of yourself. You begin to collect more pieces to your health puzzle...the puzzle slowly comes together.
#10: You teach me in more ways than I can express.
Thank-you to my past, current and future patients.
To living in health,
Dr. Amy de Oliveira, Naturopathic Doctor
