204: What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do

We’re diving into one of those head-scratching moments we all face: What do you do when you don’t know what to do? 🤯 Imagine a patient walks in with a random condition you’ve never heard of. Your mind goes blank, and you’re thinking, “OMG… I have no idea what to do or how to treat this!” But have no fear, and I’ve got you covered! 🙌

When a health concern is unfamiliar to you, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. You want to help, but without some level of knowledge, it’s hard to know what to do first. You might decide to start with the basics—digestion, stress management, blood sugar—which buys you time to figure out what’s really going on.

But how exactly do you do that? Is there some kind of easy way or shortcut to get the information you need in order to create a tailored, effective plan for your patient? 🩺

Fortunately, there is! In this episode, I’ll share my tips on how to find the information you need, put it together in the form of a structured protocol, and then create a protocol that will help your patient get better! So grab a pen, take some notes, and get ready to feel extra confident the next time you’re faced with an unfamiliar health condition.

Remember, it’s okay not to know everything. The key is to stay curious, keep learning, and don’t be afraid to take your time. With the right tools and approach, you’ll be ready to handle any curveball that comes your way. ✨


In this episode you’ll hear:

👉 How to effectively use Google Scholar and other research tools.

👉 The importance of understanding the condition’s characteristics and symptoms.

👉 A step-by-step approach to comparing patient symptoms with research findings.
