What We Do and What We Don’t Do (and some legal terms)
Applies to all websites and services provided by DocChristine Coaching Inc., Dr. Christine Sauer and her team.
What we do:
Dr. Christine Sauer and DocChristine’s team coaches work with you on helping you (and your other health care team members, if desired) to find causes and improve or heal (if possible) your chronic health conditions. You always stay in control and have the last say. We guide, educate and consult with you and offer opinions and recommendations that are the result of our long-term experience and knowledge and current science.
We will help you manage your health and healthcare team as well give instructional, content, dietary or supplement recommendations that have proven useful in past clients and/or are evidence-based.
We sort through the infinite noise of conflicting information “out there” and help you decide what to apply to your life. Our services are offered online or in-person.
What We Don’t Do:
We don’t tell you what to do. We suggest and recommend. You are responsible for all aspects of your body, mind and spirit and your success will be through your application of our recommendations and your own insights.
We don’t heal you or any diseases. We leave the healing to the spiritual source and the innate intelligence of your body. We can guide you to a place where healing can and will take place as well as recommend and help you connect with the resources you need to heal.
We don’t promise you miracle cures. These don’t exist. We believe that miracles can happen, but they usually require a lot of work!
Q: “Why do you say “Dr.” Christine – although you are not licensed as an MD or ND in North America?”
A: Dr. Christine is a “real” medical and naturopathic doctor. She worked as such for years in Germany and is still licensed there. Although the title “Dr” is gained in the US and Canada just by graduating from medical school (and adding an MD or ND behind the name), this is not the case in Germany. To be able to use the title “Dr.” or “Dr. med” you must complete a dissertation and exam, similar to what’s required for a PhD in North America. Since she has done this, she is able to use this title worldwide. If you’d rather call her Christine, she’ll be happy to listen! Most of her friends and clients call her Christine or “Doc”.
Q: Does Dr. Christine perform blood testing or do laboratory testing?
A: Not in North America. She does facilitate or recommend certain blood and lab tests and helps you to understand the results. She does not perform any medical tests or procedures. She will help you access the tests to do yourself, if desired, and guide you to understand them as well as give recommendations based on the results.
Q: Does Dr. Christine do physical exams?
A: Although she is qualified to do so (and can do so with your consent) usually she will rely on your description of your symptoms and, if applicable, evaluate test results of other practitioners, whether naturopaths, medical doctors or other practitioners. She will (with your consent) talk to your other health care team, collaborate with them and help you understand and ask for tests in an appropriate fashion.
Q: Does Dr. Christine work with my current providers?
A: Absolutely. Her specialty is managing your healthcare team together with you and crafting specialized comprehensive step-by-step plans to help you save time and money compared to trying to do it all yourself.
