What is a Wellness Team?
At YOUR-CENTER.com, we believe that a strong support network is the foundation of good health. At times of need, we all need a solid team of confidants, creative professionals, and trusted friends to support us. Unfortunately, the state of our current health system often takes us out of the center of our own care and leaves us to take what we can get instead of insisting on the care we want and need.
YOUR-CENTER.com is all about helping our community feel grounded and centered. While we certainly embrace the notion that we all have intuitions about what is best for us that should be listened to and never ignored, we also believe that people often ignore the very things that may help them the most. The YOUR-CENTER.com method of creating personalized team-based health care is simple. Good balance leads to a solid center.
Creating Your Team
- Print out this worksheet, where you see six spheres labeled for each domain. Think of the professionals that you currently have as part of your healthcare team and place their name in the appropriate domain(s). If you need help placing the practitioners in the correct domains visit http://nccam.nih.gov/health/whatiscam/#4.
- Are some domains full of names and others left with fewer? Are any domains completely empty? If so, we recommend that you make an effort to learn more about YOUR-CENTER.com services offered in that domain or domains and find one that really resonates with you. Even if it feels a little intimidating to try something new, we encourage you to at least look at the qualities of each domain and ask your self if you are addressing all parts of yourself equally. At a minimum, be willing to be willing to add new aspects to your health care team. You can print or view a filled-in version of the domain spheres from step one. This is certainly not a complete list of all the services that could fall into each domain, but we hope it gives you some good possibilities to consider.
