Bridging the Gap between Western Medicine and Complementary Therapies

Posted May 12, 2016

On Saturday April 30th, I presented “Bridging the Gap between Western Medicine and Complementary Therapies” at Mark Auger‘s Transformational Wellness Fair in Guelph ON.  

I truly believe that both Western medicine and complementary therapies have a place in our health and well-being.  They both have their strengths. For example, Western medicine was perfect at repairing my torn ACL, whereas it was unable to relieve my chronic allergies. It was through the use of complementary modalities that I have become allergy free.

There is a substantial amount of existing research and more is being conducted on other complementary and alternative modalities (e.g., acupuncture, Therapeutic Touch®, Forest Bathing). As for the new contribution to the evidence supporting complementary therapies, this was the debut of some of the live blood photos taken before and after holistic energy sessions

For those of you who missed my presentation on April 30th, the slides are uploaded below:

More research and information is being generated and collected. Stay tuned for updates on the usefulness of complementary modalities on chronic ailments.

Put together your own healing wheel.
