Health: Why We Avoid the Doctor (and the truth)

This very interesting infographic is geared to our American cousins. However, the excellent points are applicable to Canadians as well. This is a graphical statement on how difficult it is to face reality on these delicate matters with not only others, but ourselves, feeling the confidence to trust in a professional, and feel that there is hope for a solution. Dialogue is so key to the patient/doctor relationship. However, you as the patient must first come to terms with how/what/why you are feeling this pain/way/etc. – for yourself first, and then your loved ones. You must transmit that with honesty and integrity to your healthcare team. Often easier said than done. Practice makes perfect for both practitioners and patients alike! Remember: Health is Wealth!
