Balance Point has published regularly for over 10 years. I hope the information you’ve gained here has helped you improve your health and well-being.
Lately, I’ve had conversations with a number of people that have made me think differently about how we communicate through this blog. That, and changes happening in my practice have led to the decision to make some changes in the presentation of these posts.
I want this to be more of a personal communication rather than just sending information. It’s not that there won’t be information, but the tone of these emails will be more personal. I want you to know me better and I want to know you better as well.
If that doesn’t interest you, I respect that. If you are on the mailing list, there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email I send you. We can part friends.
At the same time, I hope you’ll choose to stick around, at least long enough to know if this new approach is interesting to you. I am intending it to be.
You may have read my bio on this site or one of my practice sites. But there is a deeper story. That story has to do with why I do the work I do. And it has to do with how you can benefit from it it a greater way.
Not many people know why I started practicing medicine. Oddly enough, it happened because someone threatened my life.
I was 21 at the time and living in Arizona. One of my neighbors claimed to be a martial artist. He had a hobby of going into the desert and blowing things up. And he looked pretty strong. Not really an ideal neighbor.
One day he decided that I was a good target for bullying. I’ll spare you the details, but just say I managed to get out of there before anything violent happened. And by “out of there” I mean I moved to L.A.
Once I moved, I made the decision to study martial arts. The only place I knew of was 45 minutes away. The teacher there was Master Share K. Lew. He was the 25th lineage carrier of the Tao Dan Pai school of martial and internal arts. And, at the time, he was the only temple trained Chinese Master who was teaching non-Orientals the deeper part of his art. It was an amazing experience.
The training was classical. In other words, intense and detail-oriented. Before I’d been training there a month, I realized the real power of the kung fu came from the qigong. So I started studying qigong with him. For those who don’t know, qigong is a method of opening and strengthening energy and balance.Ã‚Â A few weeks later I began taking the healing class. That’s when the real journey of healing began.
ThatÃ‚Â training, now 44 years ago, stays with me to this day. And there have been many enlightening experiences along the way. I will be sharing some of them here in the next few weeks.Ã‚Â I’ll be talking about things deeper than just taking supplements, insights that will go to the very core of the healing process.
I promise that this information will be very useful for you.
All the best for your health and happiness,
