The Power Of Choice In Empowering Clients To Reaching Their Health Goals with Kim DeYoung

Ep 85
This week on ReInvent Healthcare, I have a very special guest, Kim DeYoung. Together, we tackle a topic that is relevant for us practitioners and for clients as well. We all have the power of choice and it is up to us to help guide our clients to make the right choices when it comes to conquering their health issues and symptoms. Listen in on how choice can empower and motivate us to make the right decisions that will positively impact lives.


The Importance Of Choices
Each one of us makes an estimated 35,000 choices per day, from deciding what to wear to what to eat. As functional practitioners, we should be able to help clients make the right choices when they come to us for help in dealing with chronic illnesses, symptoms, and important health decisions. 

Empowering Clients
We as healthcare practitioners can empower our clients to make the best choices for their well-being. We must understand our role in helping clients understand why their choices matter and how to bring thoughtfulness and intentionality to decision-making so that they can lead healthy, optimized lives.

The Concept Of Choice Mapping
Choice Mapping is a tool that can help our clients and us practitioners to visually capture the components of a choice, including why it matters, potential obstacles, possibilities, and actions to take. It is important in decision making matters, especially those that can directly affect health and lives.
