Health and Healing - Health and Healing is a forum for discussion that reaches beyond mainstream health care norms. It embraces the wide variety of natural and alternative healing modalities as well as necessary conventional medical care. To further this aim please use the term "health care practitioner" rather than "doctor" to embrace the reality that there are other professionals out there to consult for health care needs.
Okay, I am a little dense today. Okay, everyday. But I am scratching my head over this.

So we can never use the term Doctor even if we saw a Doctor and not, say a Naturpath?

What if we are discussing a specialist? Like a Neurosurgeon or Urologist?

Does this terminilogy also affect SN Parenting?

If the discussion is specific then certainly it is only appropriate to use the correct term for that practitioner, be it urologist, neurosurgeon, naturopath, acupuncturist, or reiki master.

The intended focus of the forum is natural and alternative but it does host necessary mainstream medicine discussion. We're noting and hearing from members that there has been more and more mainstream focus in discussion, moving away from the natural and alternative. We simply want to encourage the more general and all encompassing term that "health care practitioner" provides to try to help everyone think beyond the typical medical model of care.

So, in other words, I can talk about "such and such happened when I saw my dr" but if somebody has a medical question we should tell her "I think you should see your HCP" instead of "I think you should see your dr" (or alternatively "I don't think you need to see your HCP because that sounds perfectly normal to me.")

Am I getting this right?

Yes, that's it. We're just trying to encourage direction of discussion and thinking. It's not like you're going to get alerted or warned for saying "you should see a doctor."

I understand that, but if want to talk about a more mainstream-type healthcare issue should I go to TAO or something? Just curious, because I don't want another TAO OT warning.

nothing more to say I guess :

Thank you! That makes perfect sense.

I think that still belongs in H&H- you'll just have people telling you to talk to your HCP rather than your doctor.

Discussions of mainstream medicine are still posted to H&H.
