Taking Charge of your own Health

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

For someone who is always sick , learning the status of my health is very important.  With a very young age, i was diagnosed with different sickness in different parts of my body. Although some of them are not that worst or needs immediate surgery, I was still advised by my doctor to take medicines for a certain period of time.  

I have medicines for my thyroid, for my gallbladder, for my heart and the recent is for the numbness of my hand. There are days that I wish i could trade my body to a more healthier one but then, i'm still happy that I can able to do things and be productive. 

That's why, i'm so happy to encounter this book which I really needed to fully understand my health condition, be aware and prepared for anything. 

Taking Charge of Your Own Health is a how-to-guide for the health-conscious seeking diagnosis, treatment, and even illness prevention.
Why take charge of your own health? Here are the realities of today’s health care:
* Less personal medical attention due to cost-cutting and regulation
* A 40 percent national misdiagnosis rate, per recent surveys
*A critical need for people to take responsibility for their own care
Targeting these issues, author Lisa Hall—whose debilitating condition took nearly ten years to properly diagnose—offers a wide variety of practical resources to empower patients. Hall’s experience is buttressed by the expertise of internal-medicine doctor Ronald Wyatt, a fellow of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.
Readers will find valuable guidance on how to
  • find the right kind of doctor, check physician credentials, and increase benefits of office visits
  • maximize Internet research
  • navigate medical insurance, Medicare, workers’ compensation, and Social Security disability
  • reduce vulnerability to hospital mistakes
  • organize medical records
  • The author encourages readers to move forward step by step—and to look back and see God’s plan taking shape through the difficulties.
