Counselling / Life Style Management

Core to good medical practice and results is open communication between doctor and patient. For some, this comes easily and for others, it may take awhile to reach a certain level of comfort. Understanding one’s beliefs, philosophies, habits, likes, dislikes, emotional health and goals often leads to a more complete understanding of one’s health state. Bad habits, addictions, repetitive mistakes, chronic stress, ignorance, inflexibility, anger, perfectionism, mood disorders and lack of vision are some examples of personal factors that can contribute to unwellness.

At KNC, the mental/emotional state is considered to be as important as is the physical one. Altering one’s lifestyle, addressing long-standing issues and considering various options can help the healing process. Not only “You are what you eat”, but more significantly, “You are what eats you”.
