I believe true medicine comes from a change in perception as much as a change in prescription. Everything in the world can be medicine or poison, depending on person, time, and place. The most potent medicines are a combination of the small, simple steps of daily living while continuing to realize that we are fish swimming in the ocean, searching for water.
I came to holistic medicine after spending my teenage years with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. After realizing how much self-confidence and trust I had lost in my compliant journey through western medicine, I begin down the path of questioning, learning, finding stillness, acceptance, and teachers. I spent years working with people with chronic pain, then sitting at the bedsides of those dying, returned to school for a Masters in Holistic Health Education, followed by five years of study in Clinical Ayurveda.
My medicine chest includes meditation, food, lifestyle, relationships, spirituality, and service in addition to herbal medicines and body therapies.
While I specialize in working with people with arthritis, chronic pain and fatigue, and digestive disorders, my general practice is all-inclusive of pregnancy/infant care through elder care.
