Heal Faster

WRITTEN BY: Nicholas Breehl

Dr. Calvo, MD, a well practice professional who has served many years in the field of immunology, including working in the immunology department of Fundación Jimenez Diaz-Clinica de La Concepción in Madrid, Spain, shares insight about being a self-advocating patient and the positive outcomes it brings.

Calvo explains there are two sides to healing; active and passive. Most of the healing we see in modern society is that of the passive patient. This means a patient plays little role in the conversation with their physician. For example, the doctor may ask the patient to “take this pill.”

The active patient, who usually has a better outcome, is self-aware of their body and their life. They only allow the doctor to do the advising. The active patients keep themselves informed, does research and thinks.
