Philosophy of Care
I believe human health is a living open system. Our health relies on our environment, such as air, soil, water, food, pain, and our connection to one another. As we grow, we tend to acquire habits in living, eating, sleeping, working, activities and emotions. These habits, combined with our environmental interaction, can either establish strong foundations for well-being or undermine the state of our health.
I enjoy collaborating with our patients to map out the "illness provoking factors" in their lives, and empower them to put themselves in a "healing environment" by reducing total toxin load that is present. I view healing as an organic, transformational process that occurs at the right time, in the right way for each of us. Healing may not always be beating illness. It can be simply regaining balance and reclaiming strength of our wholeness of mind, body and soul.
Once my patients and I build our road map for health transformation, I truly enjoy assisting them in building self care skills and knowledge to put into action. I believe the most important thing is acceptance and self-compassion driven "therapeutic connections," as our thoughts and our words are affirmations that constantly work to create powerful belief effect (placebo effect). My goal is to bring a comprehensive vision for patients' whole health while effectively collaborating with our patient-centered care team.
