• Slow Medicine: Hope and Healing for Chronic Illness

    Everything is inter-dependent—muscles and nerves, bodies and minds, people and planet – and each connecting thread has a domino effect on the other. To achieve and sustain optimal health, we therefore need perspective that goes beyond the obvious symptoms. We need to become aware of each area of our lives and explore how to optimize our wellness, not only within each of these areas but also through their harmonious integration. The best “quick fix” for our health, you see, is not a quick fix after all; rather, it is Slow Medicine – a methodical, step-by-step process of asking questions that lead to awareness that turns into action that results in optimal health. It’s kind of like a treasure hunt. Ready to begin?
