Peace and Health go hand in hand

Standard

You cannot be healthy if you are not at peace. Peace is a sign that you are in line with your spirit and the Universe as a whole. Peace is a product of harmony between your subjective experience of life and the flow of life itself. Peace cannot be found outside of yourself. Even if you are in a “peaceful” place, the experience of peace arises from within. What would you do if your sense of peace were not dependent on your environment or any other external factors? Can you imagine being at peace in the “here and now” just because you are in existence? What would it take for you to be at peace now? What is preventing you from experiencing peace this very moment? The truth is, nothing is preventing you from experiencing peace except your erroneous subjective perception of existence.
Peace leads to health and wellness. The body and mind thrive when peace prevails. Health and peace go hand in hand. Over and over again I see patients who are sick in one way or another and invariably they are not at peace. The deviations from peace are infinite, but the experience of peace is the same for everyone. Your peace is your responsibility and no one else’s. You must decide that you are going to put peace before all other things. Put peace before friends, family, desires, hopes, expectations, frustrations, disappointments, and your own petty sense of self. When you place peace on the altar of your own consciousness, peace will pervade your entire being.
To think that your health is somehow separate from inner peace is like saying water is separate from its wetness or fire is separate from heat. Peace and health proceed from the flow of your vital force or qi. The greater to flow of your vital force the more you are in sync with your purpose in life. Not what you think you should be doing with your life or how many goals and expectations you are meeting, but how fully and authentically you live the life you are given. Very few people are truly at peace, but this fact should not deter you from being at peace. If a person is capable of finding peace in the process of death, they should be able to be at peace through life.

He then went on to receive his Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from the accredited naturopathic medicine program at NCNM in 2002. By the end of his first year at NCNM he knew that homeopathy was going to be a large part of his practice. Since graduating he has maintained a private practice and over the last several years he has taught classes on homeopathy to graduate students and colleagues. He has used homeopathy in his practice to help his patients with a wide range of maladies including eczema, asthma, anxiety, depression, migraine headaches, arthritis, etc. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that recognizes the inherent Spirit of the individual as the source of health and wellbeing. As a perpetual student of medicine, healing, life, and human nature he tries to learn from all life experiences. Striving to broaden his understanding of homeopathy and this phenomenon we call the human experience, he has studied the works of all great teachers, philosophies, and religions. Of greatest interest to him is the practice of Meditation. He has held a meditative practice over the last 25 years, and has learned more in the depths of stillness than all of his hours of reading.
