After ten years of working independently, I have decided to join a team of like-minded health care professionals at the Natural Health Clinic of Halton (NHC).
My vision is to help create a health care system that addresses underlying cause of disease and inspires prevention. We can be victims when ill-informed. A more sustainable health care system empowers the patient with the tools and resources that facilitate self-care. It recognizes that we are all biochemically unique and that there is no one-size-fits-all best practice.
A month ago, I was putting all the pieces in place to go back to university full-time; to pursue a designation that conventional health care would recognize. I wanted to get into the box to facilitate change from within. In a sense I was admitting defeat, even though my mantra had been, ‘I never fail. I succeed or I learn.’
This opportunity has put those plans on hold. In mid-life, having overcome so many challenges to get to where I am, I already have so much to share and just need to reach a wider audience. While I am a lifelong learner, it no longer makes sense to hide behind my books.
If I have to resort to using “resume virtues” when the “eulogy virtues” seems so much more natural at this stage in life, so be it. Sometimes you have to play the game; step outside of your comfort zone.
‘Circumstance does not make the person. It reveals them.’
Working in a clinic with like-minded professionals, who treat the whole person, not the diagnosis, resonates with my core values. Recognizing that healing is enhanced in a community, I will initiate many group learning sessions.
I am so excited about working collaboratively with my new TEAM.
