This has been a tough time for everyone regardless of which "side" you fall on. Each are coming with their strong feelings and experiences and there is enough judgement going around on all sides.
Good news is that we can learn a lot about ourselves and others and we can choose love and tolerance even if we don't understand the other side.
More good news is that we can use what we are learning to make things better. We know that education system is broken, and the political system, and the medical system etc etc. We all ultimately want the world to get back to "normal" and for us to not fear this virus, some more than others maybe but we do. This may be our opportunity to be part of the solution of creating better systems!!
Change has never come from the top down but from the bottom up from grassroots efforts. We have to be squeezed to our discomfort sometimes before realizing that we have to make change. If we stayed comfortable, why would we bother to change anything at all? Exactly!! So we have some pretty amazing opportunities to create something totally new once we realize that it is US that needs to make it happen.
This is why we are planning to create a new medical system called Compass Integrative Health. Our goal is to have a non-profit arm and a for profit arm to allow for investors to help us build this dream. Our goal is to create a truly integrative healing experience starting with an integrative urgent care. For instance, if you break an arm, you will still need a cast from an orthopedist but we can also use homeopathy and herbals that help heal fractures along with PEMF. Or kids with ear infections can pick up some garlic ear drops, some homeopathy and see the chiropractor. Those are just a few examples of how we can use many modalities for healing. We plan to expand into a 23 hour observation unit, a birthing center and ultimately an inpatient unit to help people receive the most loving care with all the modalities available for healing, including Western medicine. There is no need to throw the baby out with the bath water so let's use it all within reason. There are plans for a study arm so we can collect data to help build the scientific information to invite in the biggest skeptics into our loving profession! We are excited to build a platform that incorporates Western medicine with acupuncture, chiropractic, nutrition and herbal medicine, energy medicine and more. We will also be consulting with environmentalist to make the most environmentally friendly construction possible.
In the meantime, how are you going to make lemonade out of lemons? You have the power to do so much!
