My Pathway to Healing
My practice is about healing the human mainframe using a variety of techniques learned over the years. One of my greatest gifts is to work with a patient on their level and gradually groom them to a position of “empowered self-healthcare” that is not only comfortable but also easy to maintain.
As a teenager, my interest in health began with food. I studied raw foods at the Hippocrates Institute in Boston, then moving onto Macrobiotic studies also in Boston and New York. I was then and still am a believer in “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
While attending Chiropractic school in Georgia, I was a founding member of Life Grocery Co-Op in Marietta then moving onto being a silent partner in one of the first health food stores in Atlanta. I resigned because one partner wanted to sell vitamins & I wanted to promote food not supplements.
What led me to Chiropractic was the actual ART of the profession. Adjusting the spine which is a continuation of the brain creates a change in the patients unique vibrational tone always for the better. The higher the vibration or resonance the less likely it is to attract sickness and disease. Does the word Disease really mean Dis-Ease?
Chiropractic was never intended to “fix” sore backs. In the early days, patients went to see their Chiropractor when they felt better than ever and wanted to keep it that way—not because they had a backache. The “old timey” Doctors of Chiropractic felt it was a failure on their part if a patient was sick as it meant they were not doing their job appropriately.
In the “early days” Chiropractors gave a weekly “lay lecture” educating patients on diet and lifestyle often requiring mandatory attendance. They knew education was essential as do I.
During school and with a little bit of NASA insight, I was exposed to the piezo electric effect of crystals, angstrom frequencies hard drive, memory, color, sound, music, and a host of other factors that can affect vibrational tone. This was pioneering work for its time (1976). I also studied the spiritual and mental aspects of healing and how they had an enormous impact on well-being. Hence the 12 Positive Volitions were born, and the Secret to Healing is the Power of Belief became one of my theorems.
Without a doubt, food is indeed the best medicine, however, there are those who do require additional support by way of supplements and pharmaceuticals to put them on the correct path to health.
This led me to become an astute and outstanding researcher into supplementation. I wanted to know everything about a product from its’ origins to its bottling-thus enabling me to feel comfortable recommending them to my patients. In my practice, strategic supplementation is the name of the game. There are no two people alike and one supplement does not fit all. Supplements when needed, are just one of the many tools I use to get the job done.
In today’s healthcare market, it seems Functional Medicine is the new buzz word. I have been practicing Functional Medicine 43 years before there was terminology to describe what it is that I do.
We are vibrational beings with a unique vibrational tone. In closing, my work is about providing a framework of healing using all available tools to expound and enhance the human capability to heal with respect, dignity and grace.
