Prioritizing health

I had a patient today who really surprised me with her progress.  She suffers from an autoimmune condition, which generally is not an overnight fix.  But what helped her the most to achieve her results was simply prioritizing her health.  At her first visit, she informed me that her job was the biggest stressor in her life, but that she really did not want to make any changes until receiving her bonus for the year.  I totally understood and made recommendations based on this timeline.  After realizing how much her job was affecting her health, she had a heart-to-heart with her husband to figure out a plan.  After making her decision and getting the support of her family, she was at peace with her situation, and many of her symptoms improved dramatically.  I know it isn't always easy to make such decisions, but prioritizing your health can make a huge impact.
