Are You Interested In Health? Me Too!

Initially, I got started in the business of health coaching through sickness.

First, I watched my mother go through treatments for breast cancer using surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. I saw how destructive and draining those methods were to her human body, mind, and spirit.

After my mom died I made a mental note; if I ever got sick, I would try natural healing first, before doing anything radical to my body.

As fate would have it, a few years later, I was diagnosed with thyroid disease.

I decided to NOT take my doctor’s advice to radiate my thyroid. Instead I changed my diet, lifestyle, and consciousness, and successfully healed my condition.

That fascinated me!

It showed me that the human body is AMAZING! It’s a self-healing organism. When we give it what it needs, it functions properly.

After healing my own condition, I was so inspired!

I wanted to learn everything I could about natural healing and teach that to others so they wouldn’t have to suffer from unnecessary surgery or take a lifetime of medication.

I immersed myself in many ancient healing techniques; visual diagnosis, organ and meridian diagnosis, herbal medicine, and food therapy. I also studied meditation, visualization, chakra healing, shiatsu, and energy medicine. I totally love it!

For over two decades I’ve been guiding people to find their own path to healing. Natural healing modalities are powerful tools that I use in my own life and in my practice as a health coach and educator.

Whether it’s on the physical, emotional, energetic, or spiritual level, there are many paths to healing.

Hippocrates, the Father of modern medicine said, “First consider the nature of man. Then consider his food, his customs and his mode of life. We view the whole man, not his disease.”

When I was diagnosed with disease my doctors saw only my malfunctioning thyroid. They didn’t question my lifestyle or the food I was eating. And, they certainly didn’t question my relationship to myself or to the world around me.

The same thing happened to my mom. They saw her cancer and attacked it, but didn’t question where it came from or why it may have manifested in the first place.

I feel this is a form of blindness in modern medicine.

You can’t really see what was going on if you only look at the physical disease.

What you put your attention on grows. And, if you are focusing on the disease, then that is what will surely grow.

Years before any disease manifests, the physical body exhibits symptoms telling us that something is out of balance.

Modern medical science excels at diagnosing disease once it has already manifested. But, a knowledgeable health and wellness practitioner, using ancient forms of assessment, can prevent disease BEFORE it manifests.

Here’s a great example:

I had a client that came for weight loss. She was suffering with pounding headaches that began on the side of her head, and the skin around her eyes was puffy and swollen, especially on the upper lid.

Her body was exhibiting symptoms of something else that was happening inside her body.

I said, “It seems like you may not be digesting your food properly and you may have some gallbladder issues as well.”

She replied, “No, I don’t have any gallbladder problems. They took my gallbladder out two years ago!”

I said, “Okay, now you may have an even bigger gallbladder problem!”

Even though she no longer had the “offending” gallbladder, her body was still suffering from symptoms of the underlying condition that was never addressed in the first place.

Her digestive system, especially her liver, was now working EXTRA hard because she no longer had her gallbladder which is the complimentary organ for the liver.

If she would have initially worked with a knowledgeable holistic practitioner that practiced in the art of assessment and prevention, she would probably still have her gallbladder today.

I’m not knocking western medicine. Doctors are absolutely needed in the world!

If I get hit by a bus don’t take me to the health store and wrap me in seaweed. Take me to the hospital! That’s where modern medicine excels.

BUT, when it comes to the prevention of disease and healing the human body – modern medicine needs to take a lesson from the ancient healers and look deeper.

We have to observe the physical body and listen to what it’s saying through its many symptoms. From there we can make diet and lifestyle adjustments to shift that person back into balance.

The body always talks to us and gives signals that something is out of balance. No one just wakes up one day and their gallbladder, or some other organ system, has stopped functioning properly.

For years, the body was giving clues that something is amiss.

If you’re a health coach or wellness practitioner and are curious about natural healing, I recommend learning ancient forms of assessment to heal and prevent disease.
