Dr Jalil Khan, MD Announces a Better Way
Having practiced medicine for over 20 years, Dr. Jalil Khan, M.D. has witnessed many changes in the field of medicine. Not only has medical technology advanced, but the psychology of how medicine is practiced has advanced as well. Gone are the days where the doctor is viewed as the all-knowing, all-powerful deity, and the patient is unquestioning and obedient. Nowadays, patients have more access to medical knowledge than ever before. This enables them to take on a more active role in their medical care, changing the doctor-patient relationship into a partnership. And Dr. Khan, a board certified Internist with a Fellowship in Preventative Cardiology, believes this to be a good change.
Dr. Jalil Khan believes that a good M.D. will recognize and encourage this partnership between doctor and patient. Dr. Khan considers that the doctorís role is not only to treat the condition that brings in the patient, but also to empower the patient into taking control of his/her overall health. In this respect, Dr. Khan encourages his patients to write out a health improvement plan, detailing what aspects of health need to be improved, and then guiding his patients through the necessary steps to do so.
Most often, according to Dr. Jalil Khan, M.D., the first step to improving oneís overall health is to incorporate exercise into the daily routine. Just 20 to 30 minutes of aerobic exercise makes a huge difference, not only in cardiac health, but in overall health. Dr. Khan realizes that not all his patients are as enthusiastic about exercise as they should be, and counsels them that if they canít find a type of exercise that they enjoy, then find a type that they donít hate. Dr. Khan tells his patients that everyone does things every day that they do not enjoy, but they know it must be done, so they do it. The same is true for exercise: it must be done, so just do it.
The next area where patients can take charge of their overall health is through diet. According to Dr. Jalil Khan, M.D., engaging in a healthier diet doesnít have to be a drastic overhaul; just making a few small changes can have a great impact. Swapping the traditional high sugar, high fat, or high salt snacks with fruit or a vegetable, switching regular bread and pasta for the whole grain varieties, adding a salad with dinner, and drinking more water are all easy changes that will greatly improve a personís overall health.
Dr. Jalil Khan points out that in treating illness, a good M.D. can add years to your life, but when patients take responsibility for their own health and well-being, they add life to their years.
