While their urges are completely understandable, by doing so, they embody the old adage, “Rob Peter to pay Paul.” They are merely discharging one debt to pay another. It is my role to get them to slow down long enough to take care of themselves. Skipping sessions or cutting corners in your treatment process not only extends the length of your recovery time, but it can also create many more severe problems down the road.

delicious holiday ham, your body is often the furthest thought from your mind.

There is something wrong with the continuous deferment of making your health a priority in your own life. One of the most important conversations I share with patients centers around the significance of focusing on their own recovery and treatment before they try to help others. I know this process is difficult for many people due to their genuinely selfless
