I have just started a course of acupuncture and am learning more about my body and how it works or doesn’t! I feel good and am fascinated by the meridians. I’m so looking forward to learning more about them in a hands on way with Donna Eden and her unique approach to energy medicine. I am a great believer in the fact that knowledge is power and knowing more about your own unique energy system (inherited and otherwise) can help you to keep well. One approach is not enough. Chinese medicine treats the person and not the disease which is how it should be. It is not just about nutrition or emotions but so many factors add up to our unique profile. A health professional needs to consider inherited factors, where you live, emotional stresses, work environment, diet, weight, upbringing, relationships, disease, toxins, sleep patterns, mental attitudes, thought patterns, happiness, spiritual awareness etc before considering how a person should be treated. Today conventional doctors rarely ask what may be going on in your life outside of your physical symptoms. We are unique , complex and amazing so one size definitely does not fit all!! This is why I love what I do. I get to meet so many amazing people and learn from them. I hope to pass on some of the things I have learnt along the way to help them also. The other most important thing to take on board also is the fact that no other person on the planet is responsible for any other person’s health. That is the unique responsibility of you and you alone. So do something to change what isn’t working in your life before it makes you ill and start now!
