I know I was a little cryptic when I announced that I’m putting my white coat back on, and I’ve gotten hundreds of sweet, curious, and supportive emails from you asking me what’s up and giving me high fives (Thanks loves!) Since then, I’ve been in my book-writing cave, passionately digging into my next book The Prescription: 5 Spiritual Steps To Healing Yourself From Illness, Trauma & Loss, which my agent will soon be shopping to publishers (so keep your fingers crossed for me.)
You Can Heal Yourself
As I started writing this book, I had a belief I didn’t know how to prove – that you can, in fact, heal yourself from what ails you and that you need not hand all your power over to someone else so they can “fix” you. This is certainly not something I was taught in medical school. In fact, the broken, outdated patriarchal medical system taught me to teach my patients to foster dependence upon me and my drugs/surgeries/treatment.
But I have always known that, while Western medical treatments certainly have their place and I’m grateful for the technological advances that allow us the opportunity to provide curative therapy for some illnesses, pills and surgeries are often not the answer.
