Welcome back time now for another wellness minute with Dr. Erica Steele from holistic family practice. In Virginia Beach.
Holistic doctors provide education on how the body works, coaching in your appointments for you to achieve your goals and accountability to get the results that you’re looking for. The mental and emotional state impacts the physical health and well being which impacts your lifestyle, your habits, your behaviors, your thoughts, create your emotions, your emotions, create your actions, your actions, create your behaviors, your behaviors, create your lifestyle. So when we’re looking at coaching, we’re helping people to see their blind spots to get you back on track. An example of that would be somebody who is trying to achieve their health goals through their diet and they continue to sabotage, we’re going to look holistically at the mental emotional as well as environmental things that could be contributing to that. So accountability is when we hold you accountable to achieving your health goals. Sometimes it may not be comfortable, but we make sure you’re tracking your food, you’re moving your body, you’re doing self care, as well as participating fully in your health care. And that’s how we take a look at your health in a holistic way.
At the time I had no idea that I would be a Naturopathic Doctor. My parents are both scholars, multi-degreed, and both instilled in me the desire to learn as well as think for myself. My mother was a nurse and is now a social worker, so for me, caretaking was considered common practice when helping people. She worked with a variety of patients in a variety of settings and while in school, also brought me with her to learn. As a young girl, I sat in organic chemistry classes and ran around labs learning complex structures prior to my maturity. This really created a deep understanding of how the body works on a cellular level and unknowingly prepared me to be a functional medicine practitioner.
