Any of my patients, along with my friends, know that I try to hold no judgment. I don’t consider myself to be a narrow minded thinker, I don’t believe things are a 1 for 1 answer, life is a multitude of grey areas and there is a story or reason behind everything. As long as you have come to me, and are willing to make some changes and look at what is not serving you, it doesn’t matter to me what you’ve done or how you’ve done it.
I recently have noticed that the concept of light and darkness has been prevalent in my life. Whether it is friends or co-workers speaking about it or noticing it in my personal life, the perspective has been at the forefront for some time now. I have often gravitated towards things that are seen as “dark”, not because I feel like a dark human being, but I gravitate out of pure curiosity and needing to Know. To be honest, I gravitate there because it is the road less looked at by most. Anything that your average person tends to steer away from, I have always been fascinated with. I have always been curious about areas less explored or the parts that are considered to be taboo to the average person. So, years ago I began exploring. I became curious about those sides of myself, and humanity, instead of pushing them aside or putting a judgment value on them without even knowing what they were. I realized that everyone holds darkness and light and everyone has shadows. If you ignore your shadows they will pop out at you, eventually, or they will keep you trapped in a corner. What I have learned is that shadows, when looked at, are an opportunity to transform and to grow. I’ve found that when you begin to engage with life, it will present you with opportunities to learn and expand as a person. The reason I bring this concept up, is because I have noticed a trend in patients that come to see me. A lot of the time they come to me with no answer, or reasoning to their illness (pain, emotional imbalances, fertility difficulties, digestive issues, etc). They have had countless tests done and still nothing, physiologically, to explain their illness or imbalance. When I began to dig a little deeper, there was significant relationship, spiritual, mental/emotional or lifestyle imbalances. These were the levels that had been ignored. My entire interest in health has been based on combining, integrated and honouring both Science and Spirit. I have found that it is easy for people to believe that Western Doctors only honour, or understand, the physical and “alternative” practitioners only believe in, or understand, the spiritual. Where I have found the most success is when practitioners incorporate and look at both the physical and spiritual dimensions of humans.
I treat my patients with a Wholistic approach. Which, to me, means that absolutely anything you encounter, on all levels, can contribute to your health and general well being. We are multidimensional creatures and I have begun to notice the importance of honouring and being curious about all levels of my patients and myself. I have noticed it is an essential part of my practice and I would be quite limited if I ignored any level. I am a creature of curiosity to the core, I have always needed to know what I felt I didn’t understand. So, that is what I hope this to be. A culmination of everything I have come across in recent years that seemed relevant to the general health and well being of, both, myself and people. Pieces of information that have helped myself and my patients, all bundled up into words that help me, and hopefully You, understand People, Life and Health just a little more.
