014: 3 Things I Wish I’d Known When I Opened My Clinic

When my oldest daughter was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, I set out on a journey to find resources and answers to save her life. At the time, I had no clue of the link between our food and our health – and I felt painfully alone on that journey. And several years later, when I finally opened my clinic, I quickly realized there was much more to know. And honestly, it felt overwhelming and very lonely.

But now, many years later, after having dedicated so much of my time to help other alternative medicine practitioners, there are three things I wish I’d known when I was getting started. 

Today, I’m sharing these three key learnings and how you can use them to grow as a practitioner, expand your knowledge base, and better serve your patients.

  • Why connecting with local practitioners and hosting meetups, even virtually, is so valuable for your learning.

  • Why it’s so important to spend dedicated time learning.
