What does modern alternative medicine mean to me?
I believe true medicine is the experience of a practitioner and a patient meeting in authentic healing connection, in healing touch.
is our healthcare providers offering more of their time and empathy.
is people having more choice and medical autonomy over their bodies.
is the access to affordable healthcare.
is our healthcare practitioners obtaining our full and complete consent before agreeing to any treatment or procedure.
is that we know for a fact that our medical choices are heard and matter.
is having healthcare providers in which we deeply respect and trust.
is affordable access to herbal medicine, homeopathic medicine, and supplements.
is having doctors that are truly compassionate and curious about how to best heal our ailments.
is the tuning into the body to find the rhythm of rest and rejuvenation.
is finding stillness and rest in life even when we are just too busy.
is our doctors really listening to what is out of balance for us; physically, psychologically, and spiritually. Considering the body, mind, AND spirit.
is being heard and seen as a person seeking medical care.
is being acknowledged and validated for our pain, discomfort, challenges, and symptoms.
is feeling understood by a healthcare provider.
is feeling cared for, relaxed, and well after an encounter with a medical practitioner.
