The average doctor spends between 9 and 16 minutes in each visit, depending upon their specialty. Your doctor doesn’t have time to tell you about how to feel well. Your doctor has time to make sure you’re not very sick. There’s a big difference. In fact, most doctors do not know much about how to feel well. They’ve spent years on overdrive. Overachieving in school, overpaying for student loans, overworking in the office, and overexending themselves trying to keep up with all of their committments. Having time to eat right, sleep right, think right, and stay active are distant ideals for most people in health care. The lack of knowledge about “wellness” isn’t the fault of your provider. It is simply the reality of a broken system. The medical system is designed to teach a systematic approach to eliminating symptoms with pills. Many doctors eliminate symptoms very well. Many doctors are also excellent at emergency intervention. They are simply not taught to think about how to prevent the disease state causing the symptom. That literally is not part of medical training. So we really can’t blame your doctor for not knowing how to make you feel well. Chances are, your doctor isn’t able to keep herself feeling all that vibrant either.
