The Sacred Phoenix

Growing up in Jamaica, I was the village healer/doctor. I only had Chloraseptic, ice, soap/water and Mercurochrome. In my medical journey, I found that Traditional Chinese Medicine and Functional Medicine to be the best, and integrated methodology for modern Hippocratic medicine. The Hippocratic way focuses on all body systems, it doesn’t isolate and is not myopic. I was trained to believe that the patient is the textbook of medicine.

I practice energy medicine as a Krieger-Kunz Therapeutic Touch practitioner, and have been performing Tai Chi-Qigong for several years. I am passionate about Fashion designing and may switch in my later years. In the meantime, at the healer ranch, I will promulgate for the elimination of underserved areas/populations.

Demystifying Infertility

The causes of infertility are varied and multiple. However, on a pathophysiologic level infertility root cause is normally thyroid/parathyroid dysfunction, low/borderline progesterone, obesity and a pro-inflammatory diet. I normally recommend IVF as a last resort secondary to sometimes very toxic side effects. Fertility acupuncture and the Tao of Fertility book are excellent starting points on one’s fertility journey. Optimizing the aforementioned systems can easily be the cure for fertility issues.

The management of chronic pain syndrome

Chronic pain syndrome is mainly managed by first optimizing the body’s innate wound healing repair system and immunity system. To achieve this goal one has to mainly create a hemodynamically balanced system by focusing on function and not laboratory ranges. The balance is manifested by listening to the patient clearly delineate their symptoms and then try to figure out the source of the problem and eliminate it. The systems to focus on initially are thyroid/parathyroid, circulatory/hemoglobin, GI/microbiome-microbiota, micronutrient/Vit D-Vit B complex and the trace minerals such as zinc/copper/selenium.
