Phoenix, AZ, USA - March 23, 2023 - Over three decades, Dr. Gibson’s holistic approach, expertise in medical science, and integrative medicine have helped thousands of patients on two continents return to health. One day, Dr. Gibson became ill and realized that navigating modern healthcare was complicated even with her thirty years of doctoring experience. Medicine and healthcare stopped being paternalistic long ago and became technologically advanced, and profitable business. Equipped with unlimited sources of information available online, we became “active” patients, questioning doctors’ opinions and looking for faster, easier, cheaper, and more convenient solutions to our health problems. Dr. Gibson says, “There is no training for patients on how to be in charge of their health, when and where to seek medical advice, how to find a “good doctor”, determine what tests are truly necessary, what treatment are the most effective, how to avoid medical errors, and overtreatment. We learn this as we go through our or our loved one’s struggles with illnesses and experiences with doctors and healthcare. It should not be like this.”
Dr. Gibson had to step into a patient's shoes by going through her own illness, feeling the vulnerability of being ill and the pressure of uncertainty. Through her personal and patients' journeys Maria Gibson, MD, PhD, tells stories of recovery and healing and brings practical lessons on how to take charge of your health, become your clinician’s partner and use healthcare services to your advantage and that fit your goals, culture, and budget.
The book, “Find Your Way: Illness, Doctors, and Healthcare” offers practical and sage advice covering how to find a good doctor and a medical practice that fits, effectively communicate with your medical team, avoid errors, take advantage of medications and dietary supplements, how to survive a hospital stay and deal with the uncertainty of clinical diagnosis and prevent over-treatment. The book is available from Amazon, Apple Books. Dr. Gibson claims, “I wrote this book to empower people to be in charge of their health instead of passing this torch to medical professionals. This is a practical doctor’s guide for your health and well-being.” At different points in life, we need reliable advice from a medical professional on where to find information, how to find a doctor who listens, and whose practice fits your needs. There is no training on taking care of your health, when and where to seek medical advice, or how to become a doctor’s partner instead of a passive follower. This book is a simple guide on how to take charge of your health, communicate your story, symptoms, and struggles to be heard by medical professionals, and use healthcare services to your advantage on a budget. As a physician, Dr. Gibson has practiced a unique combination of eastern and western medicine called Integrative medicine. She taught hundreds of medical students and physicians to practice medicine and helped thousands to return to health.
