Treating the Whole person
January 26, 2012
Hosted by Dr. Susan Allison
Are you willing to look at every part of your health and life in order to feel better: your lifestyle, habits, diet, your thoughts and emotions? Acupuncturist and herbalist, Lesley Tierra shares how important it is to treat the whole person, and will share about her own life as well as her patients’ experiences. After decades of being an acupuncturist, herbalist and shamanic practitioner, Lesley knows that if you only treat one part, such as diet, but ignore other components, such as the emotions, the illness or issue will likely return. And in contrast, if you discover the emotional cause of your illness, but fail to change your lifestyle or habits, the problem will not be permanently resolved. According to Lesley Tierra, the more complex and chronic the condition, the more important it is to treat your issue holistically: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually for lasting wellness.
