Ask a Nurse that Question You Always Wanted to Know! (A Holistic Nurse, of Course!)

Do you have a question that you always wanted to ask a nurse, a holistic one at that? 

’Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.’ ~ Shakti Gawain

Hello Body Window seeker. I am Elle Bieling, Registered Nurse, Registered Yoga Teacher and Holistic Health Coach. I am the creator of this website. Below is a form that you can submit to me, to "ask a nurse" a health question. If you have any question that you wish to ask me regarding general health, yoga or holistic health I will be happy to answer it! If you have a body part that is bugging you I will give you insights into its metaphysical cause.

Obviously, since this is not a 24/7 Ask-a-Nurse hot-line, if you are ill, it is important for you to seek timely medical care. Please consult a physician as soon as possible with severe or persistant symptoms. If it is a life-threatening situation call 911 (in the USA) or your local emergency response system immediately.

Severe symptoms that need immediate medical attention or that may be a medical emergency would include:

  • Fever above 101 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Sudden onset of severe pain, anywhere in the body.
  • Persistent nausea or indigestion or ‘heartburn’ that does not go away.
  • Severe diarrhea or vomiting.
  • Change in mental status or behavioral changes, such as not knowing who you are or where you are.
  • Any onset of paralysis, or weakness in a muscle, even if it is only temporary.
  • Any changes in a normal movement pattern, such as frequent tripping or coordination problems.
  • Numbness and/or tingling anywhere in the body, without explanation.
  • Change in speech patterns, such as slurred or garbled speech.
  • Any bleeding that cannot be stopped.
  • Severe headache.
  • For any unusual symptom that you are concerned about.

For any uncertainty regarding what constitutes a medical emergency, remember, "If in doubt, send her out!" (In other words, go to a medical emergency care provider).

Please remember that I am unable to diagnose your problem or symptom. I cannot help you if you have severe symptoms that need immediate medical attention, or that is a medical emergency.

I can provide you with health information to further educate you.

I will try to answer your health question in a timely fashion, however, since it is just I, I do need to maintain life-balance. Most likely if you ask me a health question during the week, and I am not on vacation, I will get back to you within 24-48 hours. (Check on my Body Mind Soul Blog, "The Body Window Now," to see if I am on vacation. I will keep you posted there as to my availability.) If you ask your health-related question over the weekend, most likely I will respond in 48-72 hours, depending on when you write.

So go ahead, Ask a Nurse! Ask me that health question that you have been dying to ask!
