“I came to Chinese medicine hoping it could do something for the health issues I had, and I was blown away with the results. It completely restored my health and I got off the drugs from my doctor. I couldn’t believe that Chinese medicine could heal something my doctor could only medicate! "
“Being a scientist I was trained to always look for the root cause of an issue and fix it from there, not to just cover up the symptoms. I think people want health care that will do that, and yet modern medicine is geared to just shut off or remove warning signs. Once I discovered that Chinese medicine has the insight and tools we need to change our health at its root, it was easy to switch from a technical role in medicine to study Chinese medicine and share it with others. "
“I want people to understand where their health issues are coming from and how they can make simple changes while they’re receiving treatment. Chinese medicine isn’t just about sticking needles in people, it helps people get in touch with their inner wisdom to make the benefits last a lifetime. I feel fortunate to get to use this wisdom to help people regain control of their health every day.”
