I find myself a fortunate soul.
I grew up in a loving family of hard working God loving, nurturing parents in the NYC borough of Staten Island. Yes the forgotten borough with probably the highest cancer rate around. I know, I know if you are from the tristate area you probably have a preconceived image of me. Not exactly a FARM girl living off the land! Although in many ways I did feel as though I grew up with a piece of country but that’s for another time.
I’m a practicing podiatrist in NYC and board certified foot surgeon. What a privilege it has been to serve others and offer healing. In my 20 years of practicing, I have learned a great deal from my patients….what makes someone heal? Is it the physical treatment? I know that is one component, but there is soooo MUCH more!!
“When we heal from a place of LOVE, miraculous things start to happen”
My patients have healed me in many ways and have taught me what works and what doesn’t. There are days when a patient will look into my eyes and say “how are YOU doing?” or “ how are YOU feeling?” There is an instant shift in me that the person opposite me CARES about ME! WOW! HOW PROFOUND AND HOW HEALING! and most of all how TEACHING!
Patients need to feel love from their physician ( I personally feel I am just a vehicle that can allow God’s love to flow through me). Are we present? conscious? Are we listening? observing?
What about the holistic approach? If we have patients that nourish their bodies it certainly helps to heal effectively. When we know better we DO BETTER! or at least want to. What about reducing toxic load? or eliminating toxins from our bodies? Have you educated yourself on the products your using? How have we gotten so far away from nature and so dependent on chemicals?
How does mindset effect us? Is it healthy?, Hopeful? or self loathing? doubtful? What mental blocks do we have that are preventing us to be the best version of ourselves? Are you living your TRUTH? Honestly?
Spirituality…One of my favorite books, one that I have shared with many of my patients over the years is “Love Medicine and Miracles” by Bernie Siegel. He shares healings that medicine alone cannot explain…. The mind body connect is REAL folks, very REAL! Another favorite is “Healing Back Pain” by DR. Sarno. Again mind body connection. In my personal life I have truly witnessed miracles that I can only attribute to prayer.
With an expansive attitude I opened the door to Natural healing with Essential oils. This was radical for me since after 10 years of schooling and residency nothing and, I mean NOTHING in the natural rehlm was discussed let alone taught. To say I was a skeptic is an understatement but with that said, self healing, wellness and development has always been an allure and led me to many self help and self development reads over the years.
My exploration of essential oils began at home with me and my family. The results…. well this is why I am writing this. Quite frankly they have significantly changed our (my family had no choice to be apart of this movement! lol!) lives which has compelled me to teach and introduce as many people as I can to these gifts of the earth.
I see and feel a SELF HEALTHCARE REVOLUTION taking place…..We have the ability to take our health and wellness into our own hands. Let me share here priceless knowledge that will empower you and the ones you love.
It’s OK to begin learning self care. It’s OK to begin to self heal. It’s OK to explore organic options. It’s OK to share your experiences with others. It’s OK to perhaps take a step back in time. It’s OK to be here!!
