The Top Article of the Week
As Naturopathic Physicians we know that there are multiple factors that influence our health, including our genes, nutrition, exercise, and stress levels. It might not be the first thing we think of when we consider the variables that influence health, however, one of the strongest contributors, and one that might often go unnoticed, is the effect our environments play on the health of our clients.
We might suggest a certain supplement, diet, or exercise protocol, but, if we don’t take into account our client’s everyday environments, these suggestions might not lead to the success we hope for. We constantly embed ourselves in environments that may hinder and support healthy decisions and these environments, whether consciously or not, influence our decisions in most everything we, and our clients, do.
This week, Tanner Baze, in the Best Article of the Week, emphasizes the importance our environments play on our health and that learning to take some control over this important variable can have a profound influence on our healthy endeavours. Getting our clients on the road to better health is an exciting, but sometimes overwhelming mission. Giving patients all the tools, including an understanding of their environments and behaviours, may be just the recommendation you’re been missing.
