The Top Article of the Week
The New Science of Disease Recovery – Emily Singer: The Atlantic
As Naturopathic Doctors, we know the importance of looking at the whole picture when it comes to disease and illness. This gives us a wide perspective on the health of our clients.
Our best “Article of the Week” this week, written by Emily Singer of the Atlantic, highlights this philosophy, and discusses the current state of knowledge and research about why we get sick, and the reasons why we get better.
“We spend a lot of our time figuring out how to stop disease, but the real focus should be on how to get better and recover”. While, getting better isn’t only doing the reverse of what makes people sick.
We all want to feel better when we’re sick and treating the illness is an essential part of our client’s wellbeing. But treating the body ‘s natural defenses when we’re on the mend is just as important.
