How to educate and motivate yourself - instead of getting medicated

(NewsTarget) Sick and miserable again, you go to the doctor, and invariably you leave with a prescription of pharmaceutical medication and maybe the dire words that there is no other option: you`ll have to take the tablets for the rest of your life. Instead of handing over your personal responsibility and future to others though, your educational research initiative can allow fresh air in, which is superior over being passive and stuck with recommendations by well-meaning professionals of whom you don`t know the extent of their medical education and approach. Few doctors have been trained in nutrition or natural health. Motivation is the next step; it`s the key to applying what you have thoroughly investigated and found to be beneficial. It moves you to action despite other people`s raised eyebrows and criticism as well as your own deeply ingrained habits. Motivation helps towards better health and the confidence that you`re genuinely doing the best that`s possible, given your personal circumstances.

You may have looked up a few websites in your quest for relief from your chronic complaint, and you may already know that natural treatments are safer. When you bring up the subject with your well-meaning GP or specialist - oncologist consultant - however, s/he might be less than encouraging about your choice. Consequently you yourself might start doubting the prospect of a positive outcome (other than relieving symptoms) when using natural medicine. That`s if you`ve allowed your research to leave any doubts in your mind.

To make a wise health decision, first of all you need to be fully aware of the source of any and all information: 1) from the medical, pharmaceutical side of things; 2) from the well-educated, well-informed, well-researched natural health scene; 3) from the experienced or otherwise just anecdotal field of grass-root home remedies; 4) from the perhaps borderline supernatural area of energy healing, reiki, angels, and hypnotism etc.; or 5) from outright quacks.

You`ll probably decide right here and now to what you wish to pre-limit yourself. Don`t be surprised, however, if you find opposing opinions on the Internet about everything. The more you research, though, the more you`ll recognise the ring of genuine medical truth. Take ample time, and analyse thoroughly. It`s your body, your health, your life, and your future.

On an A4 paper write down what treatments, advantages, and disadvantages there are. You need to have an accurate knowledge of your choices and their consequences. Then weigh up the pros and cons.

Take for example, cancer treatments. The choices include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, operation, hormonal therapy, bowel detoxing, building up the immune system, a plant-based cancer diet, and going to a health institute for natural treatment, to mention just a few options. For answers, examine websites that shed light on the subject from different angles, and in normal, non-scientific English. Try also to recognise any side effects and risks, plus possible money agendas behind the options. The advertised goal is always to minimise pain and to maximise pleasure in life, but consider what you may have to sacrifice on the way.

Once you have gathered your information, weighed up everything, and made an informed choice, you might see a need to make some serious lifestyle changes.

With your motivation based on solid facts, you can direct your behaviour towards particular goals. The motivation from within will provide the increased energy you need for special efforts. Old habits die hard, but in order to change, reminders are invaluable. So put notes on your fridge and in other appropriate places. And then just be consistent. You`re worth it.
