Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture and Chiropractic Care

I have not been to a doctor for a regular check up for nearly 7 years.  Mainly that was because I didn’t have insurance, but partly it was because I’ve lost faith in Modern Medicine’s approach to “healthcare”.  Rather than going to the doctor for regular check ups, I’ve changed my eating habits, become more physically active and found natural alternatives to treat what ails me.  I feel more healthy than I have in a very long time because of these lifestyle changes and have had a lot of success with my natural treatments.

Now that I finally have insurance again I decided that I wanted to continue on this more natural path for healthcare and was absolutely exstatic to find that my insurance covered Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture and Chiropractic care.  I was even more excited when I found a group of providers all located in the same office.  I promptly made an appointment and anxiously awaited my intake day.

Today was that day.  The Doctor was friendly with a gentle bedside manner.  I was comfortable discussing my lifestyle and health concerns with her and she was very good about explaining everything that she was thinking about or looking at with regards to my healthcare.  She listened thoroughly to all of my concerns and asked pertinent questions so that she could get a feel of where to direct my treatment.

At the end of the visit, I feel good about continuing to see her.  I have to go get some things looked at outside of her realm of experience – but she intends to consult and guide me through those processes.  My biggest concern was my stomach issues.  She prescribed a supplement which contains Banana, Licorice Root, Marshmallow Root and Slippery Elm Bark.  These ingredients are supposed to heal my stomach and esophagus.  I’m about to pray to the Google Gods to find out the benefits and drawbacks of each ingredient and how they work together.  I’ll keep you posted on what I find out.

About Ms Fihaki

Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I’m supposed to write about me – who I am as a person and I really don’t see the sense in that considering that when you read my posts you will learn more about me as a person than you would from any 500 word statement I could make. I will however play by the rules – just this once. I’m 36 years young. I consider myself a strong independant and beautiful woman (hey! I wrote about that! Check it out!). I’m single and love it. Just over a year ago I made some serious lifestyle changes which include eliminating alcohol from my diet, being more physically active, eating healthier and daily working on my spirituality. One of the things which has happened as a result of these lifestyle changes is that I’ve gained a level of clarity I never knew was possible. With this clarity comes the realization that my words affect the lives of those around me. I’ve always been much better at writing than at speaking. If I can affect people the way I do from speaking, just imagine the effect I can have with the written word! I had been blogging about my secret life doing sensual massage – but I wasn’t getting a lot of traffic or interraction from that blog. Upon the suggestion of several friends I decided to start this – my public blog. My hope is that this will allow my readers to interact with me, a real live human being and that together we can create a ripple effect of positivity throughout the universe! (yea I dream big – it’s a must!) Anywho – I sincerely hope you enjoy the things I have to say and interractions are welcome and encouraged! Be Well!
