Since working in the traditional western healthcare arena for 6+ years, I’ve developed a love for Naturopathy, Ayurveda, and other eastern philosophies. This new passion stems primarily from my study of yoga. My eyes were opened to the pain and suffering our country is in. As a pharmacist, I get to see the daily struggles people have with depression, anxiety, pain, addiction, cancer, and general disease. There is a pill to treat almost every symptom of a disease, but very few can treat the person. The lack of focus on diet, exercise and lifestyle in western medicine is frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, traditional medicine is necessary- hands down, but it’s overused.
My interest lies in the science behind natural medicine. There is no doubt that Naturopathy works. And why most would argue “why apply western principles to eastern philosophy,” its a necessary step to convince the average American that it does truly work.
I’m not sure what my long term goals are. Eventually I would like to branch off, continue my education, and practice a form of eastern medicine. Right now, I’m using my time in my position as “research.”
My sites are used to share my knowledge, advice, tips, and general awareness about alternative therapies that are easily available.
