It was only when I left the full time practice of medicine almost 14 years ago that I truly became a doctor. While I was in practice, I was focused on attending to the more immediate needs of my patients and managing the day-to-day details of running an office than "doctoring" in the true sense of the word.
The word doctor means teacher. It is the agentive noun of the Latin verb docere (do-ke-re), which means to teach. The title of "doctor" is used to refer to anyone who is recognized to have acquired sufficient knowledge in a given subject to teach it. This explains why the highest educational degree that can be obtained is a "doctorate."
While I received the title of "Doctor of Medicine" upon graduating from medical school, I now consider myself more of a "Doctor of Optimal Health," which I earned through years of independent research and reading; by attending lectures and conferences; and by teaching thousands of people how to take charge of their own health and performance.
What does any of this have to do with a Facebook contest?
I am a frustrated teacher. While several thousand people will receive this blog post, less than 200 will see it on Facebook. I hope that this contest will motivate my readers to "like" the (relatively new) Core 4 Nutrition Facebook page so that I can have the opportunity to do what I love to do--teach.
While this blog post allows me to share some information, there are so many other stories, research articles, podcasts and blogs that I would like to share. I know that many of you would find this additional information of practical interest. That means you'll be able to use it to make your life better!
