To My Family and Friends,
I’m so excited to share my next endeavor with you and would like to ask you for support in my journey to discovering the truth about health. As some of you are already aware, my training in holistic nutrition opened my mind to a new health paradigm and to the infinite wisdom of our bodies.
Before my holistic nutrition training, I wanted to trust in people caring for one another. This included trusting anyone (or any organization) who made promises of safety and something being “good for me.” To this day, I want to trust the inherent good in people. I have also learned to make discernments around what drives people – we all want to be loved, accepted, and cared for. Because we all have unique ways of meeting these needs, priorities can be shifted in ways that do not place objective truth above personal gain and comfort.
Critical thinking is essential in learning any truth. It may feel uncomfortable and even threatening to question anything we want (desperately at times) to trust. I’ve struggled with my curiosity challenging what we’ve all been told is the truth, especially about our capacities. In particular, the body’s capacity to function, heal and thrive is unparalleled.
From a very young age, I was fearful about the state of my mom’s health – she was a smoker, not very conscious about what she consumed, she did not enjoy exercise, and her twiddling thumbs would reflect the constant activity of her mind. In hindsight, her body had been nudging (sometimes screaming at) her multiple times. Her back would give out to the point of immobility, and she experienced symptoms that medical professionals could not understand or explain. I used to give her such a hard time about her smoking habit and would express my concerns for her health in hopes my pleas would be taken more seriously than her own desires.
My mom received the diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in February 2019. I recall feeling scared but also hopeful. That may sound naïve, especially since 99% of the people we’d speak with (and sources we’d read/watch) would emphasize the poor prognosis for pancreatic cancer. I remained hopeful because of my conviction for the body’s inherent ability to heal. If only hope were as contagious as we believe pathogens to be.
The shock of hearing the word “cancer” sends waves of fear and hopelessness through most people. My mom was told she would not make it past one year (had she not followed the conventional treatment options). Having asked some follow-up questions to the doctor proved to only push up against his ego, and I knew I was alone in my place of hope and imagining possibilities.
We have been enculturated to trust “the professionals” in many aspects of our lives, most notably our health. My mom followed the doctor’s recommendations and integrated them with Chinese medicine. She also quit smoking the day of her diagnosis, changed her diet, walked/swam/hiked, and demonstrated a positive attitude and what hospice doctors and nurses called an extraordinary will to live. My mom died on February 6, 2020 - just under one year from the date she was given her prognosis. The significance of mind-body oneness cannot be denied; I believe that the prognosis my mom received, worked as a spell.
The outcome was not what I hoped for, yet I continue to appreciate the lessons and opportunities for growth and health. While I still have moments of wishing I knew then what I know now, I see through a wider lens and hold space for understanding why my mom made her choices, as well as an understanding of myself and why I gave her a hard time.
All this shared, my conviction in the wisdom of nature and it being the same wisdom inside our bodies remains unshaken. Nature’s design is not flawed; Our bodies do not make errors or work against us. Having faith in nature’s intelligence and a curiosity to understand what “disease” in the body is, led me to discover German New Medicine (GNM).
GNM is a revolutionary perspective of health and disease discovered by Dr. R. G. Hamer, a medical doctor. In the early 1980s. Dr. Hamer identified a definite correlation between our physical symptoms, our brain and unexpected emotional distress in our lives, also known as “conflict shocks.” His scientific research has provided a “map” that can help identify what symptoms and organs are controlled from what areas of the brain and what type of “conflict shock” we experience.
GNM helps us to understand the cause, the development and the natural healing of diseases based on what Dr. Hamer has named the Five Biological Laws of Nature. The Five Biological Laws are the foundational principles of this new health perspective. It provides a new understanding of “diseases” as biological programs built into all organisms to assist us in dealing with unexpected, emotionally distressing situations.
I’m excited to delve into all that GNM offers and explore its mind-body connections map. It aligns with my reverence for the body and will dovetail with the therapies I currently provide, including Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. Both modalities emphasize the client's innate healing power rather than the idea that the therapist is doing the healing.
This endeavor is part of a larger vision for my organization, HOLD, to cultivate a space for supporting one another through a lens of compassion. I appreciate your interest and time in learning about my campaign. Thank you for your support.
