"Half of what we are going to teach you is wrong, and half of it is right. Our problem is that we don't know which half is which." - Charles Sidney Burwell--Dean of Harvard Medical School, 1935 - 1949.
The choices you make now will influence the quality of your life in the decades to come. You have the opportunity now to make your life healthier, fuller, and to matter more than ever. This common sense longevity principle is simple. You are inherently designed to thrive as you age and you can, if you aid your body's Innate Intelligence, trust yourself, start making healthier choices, and make the changes you know you need to make to support good health.
Doing what it takes to be healthy and maintain a healthy weight can sometimes feel overwhelming.Intrinsic motivation is defined as the motivation that is driving us internally; it is not what the doctor or the dietitian told us that we should do and usually doesn't involve the word 'should' at all.
The point here is that the doctor-patient relationship is tremendously important in healthcare. I believe that a lot of the art of medicine is based on the dynamics of that relationship, and on the mutual trust that emerges. In the modern version of primary care medicine we have seen the doctor-patient relationship deteriorate to a point where there is often very little trust developed.
