Why is advocacy important to my health?
An advocate cares about your health and works to understand it and obtain the best care for it.
If this didn't answer your question, please clarify it.
Why is me being an advocate for something helpful to my health?
Ahh - that clarifies your question. :-)
I think the question is asking why it's important for you to advocate for your own health. As an advocate for your own health, you're more likely to follow healthy living patterns, ask questions of your doctor, follow his/her instructions, and generally be proactive in your own health care.
