Why am I passionate about Natural Medicine?
As a Healer, I am someone who is all about connecting with the right people. I have an inherent ability to help people to give voice to their emotional lives. Being a part of a person's development brings me great joy. Since I am inspired by what tomorrow may bring, I can paint pictures of the future, energizing those around me. I often help to resolve challenges by bringing courage and creativity to problematic situations.
Like many others I have talked to, I experienced less than desirable side-effects when I consult traditional medicine. Unfortunately, some prescription drugs get on the market without the proper background testing to ensure that it is totally safe. Then, when people start to get sick, or even die sometimes, then the product is recalled. I am much more comfortable with an ancient form of healing which has had very extensive testing and retesting, ensuring the safety and putting my mind at ease.
