I feel grateful that early in my career I learned from what I consider renegade doctors, who forever changed the lens through which I view disease. In 2002, these progressive medical doctors were using nutrition and lifestyle to alter biochemistry and reverse chronic disease, including cancer. It made much more sense to use this functional medicine model of looking at diet, environment, stress, and emotions as a root cause most health conditions rather than just treating symptoms. There is a constant interplay between the nervous system, our thoughts and emotions, and the immune system. Since I strongly resonated with this, I built my practice around addressing the whole person.
I have witnessed the body's unbelievable capacity to heal given the right conditions. Since this occurred so many times, it made me curious to explore beyond acupuncture and nutrition. Now I realize that meditation and energy healing is a vital part of regulating the nervous system in order to change the body's chemistry. This essential piece must not be overlooked if you want to truly heal. I now look at symptoms or discomfort as information we can either ignore or explore.
