The wellness model for care is one that seeks to ‘first to do no harm.’
You need to research your options carefully from a variety of perspectives. You are weighing out risks vs possible benefits. All forms of treatment, including self treating, have possible risks. You may have tried many Western medicine approaches and have not gotten the results you were hoping for. Or you may want to try an integrative approach but just aren’t sure where to turn next. There are so many modalities that it can become overwhelming.
There are many non intervention oriented methods that are effective for chronic problems. Often you will have to commit to making life style changes and taking more responsibility for your health and well-being for them to work. I can help you evaluate what your choices are. I can also help you with personal referrals based on my knowledge and experience with practitioners.
If you are experiencing a chronic health challenge and have not gotten the results you were hoping for, consider a consultation. As the president and founder of BirthLink.com and Five Element Shiatsu, my experience, in addition to working with Asian medicine for many years, has equipped me with skills, resources and referrals in the complementary modalities. If you have any questions please contact me. I will be happy to help you determine if a consultation would be appropriate. In just an hour or two you could be on your way to better long term health and quality of life.
