    Before you become pregnant, ask your gut if it is ready

    Like our skin is the barrier to the outside dirt, our gut is the barrier to the outside world. It protects us and any kind of medical issue at one level happens because that barrier has been damaged or violated.

    When Creativity helps Burnout in life and work

    When Creativity helps Burnout in life and work

    As a patient to be successful it is important to understand the human being who is helping you. Listen to this chat I had with Dr. Lara Salyer a family p0ractitioner from small town Monroe in Wisconsin explain what we can do to shift the system.
    While most physicians want to work with their patients in a way that they teach, not tell their patients what needs to be done and why. However due to some evident blockages in the traditional medical system like insufficient patient and appointment time ratio, unreasonable performance metrics just to name a few, that more often that restrains them. This impacts their performance, causing burnout and frustration that bleeds into almost all other areas of their lives, cause doctors are humans too.
     
    To prevent this from happening, it's very important for physicians and all healthcare professionals to keep that creative flow alive in their day to day work and practice which prevents burnouts and subsequently leads to re-energizing their careers, decrease in stress, and experiencing a prolific joy.
     
    Our guest on this episode of Women Wired for Wellness podcast, Dr. Lara Salyer, OD, IFMCP, shares more on this and what steps can physicians take to make a positive shift in that direction.
