Wise Elders

[v. 02-01-2017.  Updated after Inauguration 2017. See below new Elder information about Black leadership in healthcare and acupuncture in these times of austerity and need for cost-effective health care methods and education in these methods: click to jump below.]
 
The sections below are being updated now that I'm consulting on challenging cases only -- via Nirvana Holistic Medicine and Spa. My main focus for the next two months is Wisdom Day 2017My intent in Wisdom Day 2017 is to help the younger generations of Health Care Leaders and Students learn about timeless wisdom and about very important observations that have not been easy to find in these busy modern times.
 
Wise Elder teaches about effects of toxins in foods -- Russell Blaylock, M.D.:
Glutamate and Excitotoxins and their potential in chronic debilitation of nervous system, cardiac, etc. -- Video below is from Russell Blaylock, M.D. He's an impassioned educator striving to wake people up to the facts about healthy eating to protect your brain, your body, your relationships in general -- your entire life... Much research is needed, but this will show you what we naturopathic physicians have considered.

 
 

Charlotte Gerson in this video below shares about "old-time natural medicine" and its current benefits to western society.

[This is a potential referral resource for those traveling to Hawai'i for Wellness Vacations through Routefinders for Friends, with Dr. Wilson.]
 

Below is a video from the Gerson Institute's YouTube Channel. This video introduces some of the basic concepts that can make a big difference in people's health. Once you have viewed the video you are invited to speak with me or Dr. Knights about our current recommendatons about how you can benefit from what has developed with the Gerson Therapy in regards to your own concerns about mental health and wellness. Dr. Wilson has visited and was impressed by the old-time feeling of an important center that is dedicated to Alternative Cancer Treatment, but also includes therapies that can help to turn around any health condition. This is Hawai'i Naturopathic Retreat Center, Inc.[link] This Hawai'i Gerson Therapy Program is directed by Maya Nicole Baylac, N.D. -- Licensed naturopathic doctor, Psychotherapist. Dr. Baylac has designed a program that offers the original Gerson method and enhances it with other synergistic procedures. Dr. Baylac obtained her Gerson certification in 2002; between 2004 and 2008 she was affiliated with the Gerson Institute. Later on she chose to become independent from the Gerson Institute.

[added 01-26-2017] I Mutulushakur is a health activist for the Black and low-income communities of America. He has been what some call a shining star even while he is imprisoned. (I am thinking of the career and imprisonment of Nelson Mandela that I have read about in past decades.) I invite you to read the careful legal presentation of facts that will show that Mutulu Shakur is an acupuncturist whose straightforward message of health care options should resonate strongly with the new Secretary of Health and Human Services [link to .gov site for HHS}.

Here is a photograph from his imprisoned status. [Read the legal details for what seems to be a deserved release: Here.]

He is older and wiser. I am eager to hear how deeply he has memorized his acupuncture knowledge of life cycles and points. [My intro on my teaching site: Acupuncture Science. This knowledge of acupoints and acupressure is something that a person can carry with them forever. This can decrease the need for instant reliance on medical prescription. Especially useful for the Disability Community [my link] and people who can't get to an Emergency Room or a high-tech physician within minutes of their discovering some need is underway.


Next is a therapeutic word-picture by poet David Whyte. This thoughtful insight is from poet David Whyte whose presentation I attended at the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium. It even includes a resonant phrase that The People of The Book would appreciate (Jewish, Christian, Muslim) about turning toward Home...

Body Psychotherapy and Kinesthetic Medicine
This is a beginning to understand a complex set of approaches: My overview begins here.

Especially important are the FlexAware and Biotensegrity insights. [Click for videos and science correlations]
 

The musculo-skeletal-fascial aspect of body movement and energy flow: I'm especially eager to show you the entire half-hour video on the tissue matrix/fascia insights of Dr. Giumberteau. I own the DVD titled, "Strolling Under the Skin" and highly recommend it (purchase at Anatomy Trains supply).l Here is a video that a medical team has posted of the original Strolling Under the Skin film:



The aditional insights below are from my earlier condensed version of an educational program of how to help the concerns of people who contact the center where I work. I intend to reformat this now that Nirvana Holistic Medicine and Spa has become my major platform for contributing to the DC community.

To Begin With: Now that I've increased my online services to include coaching and minimal lab testing worldwide this page will be updated for viewing by potential staff associates as well as the general public.


Quiz to Join: Because of the intricate nature of my "inner algorithm" that guides me in choosing assessments and treatments and coaching style, I've invited people to view this Staff Requirements page as a way to "quiz" themselves about my approach to providing Care. I intend to be adding to this page some self-study items so that you will feel more respected and supported by this "New User Experience." If you and I do make a connection then I'd be glad to hear your observations about how I and my site and my associated network can meet your needs. Read on and discover what is here for you.

Your Networking and Referral Contributions to this Endeavor
 
My practice is one that is non-prejudicial. I invite you to consider your own understanding of the Human Condition. Can you be supportive of people whose worldview is not like yours? Can you respect each individual regardless their professed belief system? The graphic below is my adaptation from an old out-of-print magazine. You'll find it on my page about Science and Spirituality. [Link to that page with the essay, "I do not want you to lose your faith."]


Office and Practice Management:
 
Of course it would be a plus if you were able to type, know how an office should run, and have awareness of EHR (Electronic Health Records, such as at www.NextGen.com).

Final parting reminder about what is behind all the work that I do:
Tte key staff characteristic that I seek -- knowing that you will represent my services to our community and people from around the world who contact us -- is that you are aware of your own dynamic self-healing powers and you can respect the individual processes that each of us practitioners uses for our clients and patients.
