WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG
Hi. Welcome to my blog. I’m Grant Jackson and I’m a family doctor. My goal is to write about valuable topics in health and wellness. Like I said in the title I’m new to blogging so thanks for visiting and following along.
I’ve been doing general family medicine for 10 years and am now branching out to do more health oriented medicine. Recently I finished a program in integrative medicine with Dr. Andrew Weil. I’ve been learning how to help people by integrating the best of traditional medicine with the best of alternative medicine to help my patients and readers achieve a level of health they never thought possible.
Seventy to Ninety percent of the diseases that I see in my practice are lifestyle related and I’m tired of just treating these with more and more prescriptions and less and less care. It seems that now days we are working more with a ‘disease care’ system than a true health care system. I find that I am really just mostly treating symptoms and not getting to the bottom root causes of disease.
I really only get to spend 7-10 minutes with patients. This is nowhere near enough time to offer much help other than ordering another test, consultation or prescription.
I’d like to be able to spend time with people and really get to the bottom of why they are not feeling well. So many of my patients say that they are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired and I am sick and tired of not helping them well.
So I am changing the way a I practice medicine. My passion is for helping people make fundamental, lasting changes that will propel them to ultimate health and wellness. To that end I will be posting here and hopefully seeing like-minded patients in my office on a regular basis.
I’m going to focus on a broad swath of medical topics including mental health and stress reduction, diet and nutrition, exercise, and sleep. My goal is to provide education along with practical tweaks and hacks to help my readers revolutionize their health. I’d like to be an empowering and encouraging voice.
Health and wellness can seem elusive. There are so many things about the human body that we still don’t understand. One thing I am sure of though is that the human body is a miracle of nature and has a wonderful innate capacity for health and healing. I want to help activate and enhance this capacity.
So join me in taking charge of your health and happiness.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
