Making a Better Choice

When medical test results indicate we are in a state of unhealth, our doctors
often have a frank discussion with us to pinpoint the behaviors and activities that
may be contributing to our illness. Based on their knowledge and experience,
they then offer suggestions and guidelines for us to follow. In warning a patient of
the risks of an unhealthy lifestyle, a good doctor isn’t casting judgment on the
patient. Rather, they are encouraging their patient to be more mindful of their
choices so they can avoid more serious—and potentially life-threatening—
consequences down the line.
