I had an interesting conversation with a friend this holiday weekend. Jim asked me what compels someone to book time with me with regard to their health. I thought about it. I considered the fact that many come to me via word-of-mouth referral- having helped someone others want to see if I can help them.
I considered the amount of training and experience I have, and the wonderful system of German combination homeopathy and classical single remedies, with nutritional guidance, all blended into a system that really works for my clients.
But then I answered him: “Because I really care, and my clients know it. They can feel it.”
And that is the difference. Unfortunately, orthodox medicine trains its doctors, and nurses to a lesser degree, to cut off their emotions as they work with patients. I simply can not and do not choose to do this. I feel such great compassion for the people who ask me for help. Because I really feel for them, I go the extra mile and do whatever it takes to try to improve their quality of health.
This of course means more time. TIME- you know, the thing you just never get in the medical world? lol I can’t work with very many people at once, as I give so much time to each person.
So, alternative practitioners are not wealthy, but we are satisfied, rewarded human beings!
I finished up my explanation to Jim by saying, “I am working my way to heaven, one person at a time.”
It feels very good to me!
Happy New Year to you all!
