Documenting Your Health

diet issues retrospective health journal symptoms Aug 03, 2021

Seeing into the daily activities, food choices, and symptoms of patients is one of the most effective ways for a doctor to understand the patients symptoms, and to get to the root cause of the problem.

At PuraWell, we use a Retrospective Health Journal to do this.  In this video, Dr. Thoma and Jennifer discuss what a Retrospective Health Journal is, and how to use it to document your health.

Using the Retrospective Health Journal not only helps you and your physician see patterns in your symptoms and concerns, it also helps you take control of your health care by giving you the opportunity to thoughtfully and intentionally consider what you are putting into your body, how you are moving your body, and the results it has on your overall well being.

This is a go-to tool for anyone who wants to start making small changes to their routines that will begin to add up to big changes in their health.

Dr. Thoma is a functional medicine physician in Chesterfield Missouri. Together with his wife Jennifer, they own PuraWell, a company focused on health and wellness solutions to help you live longer, healthier.
