I’m here for you.
Whether you’re currently navigating a health problem/crisis or you’re just trying to stay healthy, I’m here to help you navigate the waters of our western medical system.
Western medicine is a powerful healing system, but in recent years, there has been an erosion of trust between physicians and patients. And rightly so, because many patients are seeing past the patriarchal facade of this tradition. In addition to that, the changes of the system that takes away autonomy from both doctors and patients alike that are pushed forth by external pressures like medical insurance and managed care are further eroding trust. But even though there are problems with the system, western medicine is a powerful healing modality that continues to facilitate healing and sometimes cure.
Many western physicians nowadays do not yet understand the power of trust in the healing journey. They do not understand the power of nocebo and medical hexing. They do not yet fully use the power of love and connection with patients to facilitate healing and wellbeing. I want to be the bridge between physicians and patients until the time when such a bridge is no longer necessary (hopefully in the the near future).
I use meditation, coaching and mindset change to help you overcome years of ingrained beliefs about your health that are blocking you from living in your full well-being. As a physician, I serve as your interpreter of medical lingo and help you understand your interactions with your medical professionals. I can help you gain an understanding of your diagnoses and treatment choices so that you can be the captain of your own health rather than a passive participant. I want you to be able to advocate for yourself and reap the full benefits of healthcare. And as a meditation teacher, yoga and martial arts teacher, and qigong practitioner I can help you safely choose other modalities of healing to augment your health. Together, we can figure out a plan to implement habit and lifestyle changes from a place of wholeness, without judgement.
From a place of deep self-love and connection, we will define what wellness truly means for you and find a path to it together.
