Ruthy girl, you asked in the other thread.. about the experience of instructions..
One of the biggest issues I have is not knowing MY questions before I go there...
Appointment time: Actually, they spend most time on intake, - I expect the emphasis there is that the Doctors LEARN how to HEAR!. I could easy and better fill out the answers ahead of time, less embarrassing for some as well.
No they do not educate the client much -within the time constraint-, of take this and that. I am following up by email. //// They also did not compare my before owned Swami. They just made a new one- albeit similar- its quite different. They might have gleaned some info from my own historical entries on that Swami...... but I understand their need to learn/assess individually.
They then look at my answers in a private study group with Dr. D., to which I am not privy..
Dr D. is behind the info assessment, and makes contact visits.
I take hombridge in that they hand out a poor explanation of written material on what to take and why on sups instructions. They are self selling in the clinic, so have no 'connected' access to take advantage of the blurbs the store would use to explain the sups. I think that to be 'oversight'.
Also, as a client, if I was not familiar with the chat here-able to get more info or communicate further/know of the intent of philosophical (medical) differences, - , I would have felt shock at the scantily of 'teaching' about -medical /vers natural meds- in debt why and how. Its like any doctors office, in and out. Clients 'I' only think of questions later. Also possibly, they should assign 1 Person /Doctor/student for direct email follow-up contact. Someone who 'remembers' the case.
But overall all the pieces are in place.. its all about my (catastrophic) expectations. and.... I might be looking for coach not a doctor... they are so way ahead of me, yet I would like to catch up.. (like I said catastrophic expectations.. unreasonable on my part...
As for diabetic's eating patterns.. I wonder if anyone has the correct answer. They say drop 10 pounds every year, or diabetes will kick up.. well in the process of dieting, each person has to do it his or her way.. My (obstinance) way is that I will always go back to low carbs,, (it works for me) eating more or less is on issue more mentally than physically..... I get in trouble when I think of food, so I might prefer to eat fewer meals, while my blood sugar might prefer more frequent meals.. the trick is in the word meal... one or two grapes or 4 nuts are not a meal.. and when tired sugar is absorbed soooo instant giving energy, its easy to see why people falter.. --- I also think that when I am bored, tired, or looking for diversion its easy to reach for 'something'. I noticed that yesterday, when I was busy doing things but every chance I got I wanted one more de-caf.. habitual behavior.. and therein is the eating dilemma.. it takes time to 'get it' that they don' get it=== ergo== it takes time to 'get it' that 'I' don't get it. Progresses come in very small discoveries...
