Welcome to Priority Health Blog!
I am a researcher, a sponge for information and knowledge. I want to KNOW things.
I am an Enneagram Type 5 - the Investigator.
I am a Gemini - keen on learning, curious. Mercury in Gemini: I love writing, thinking, and try to better the world! Chiron in Gemini: Wounded Healer. Marsn in Libra: diplomatic, seeking justice, fairness and equality. South Node 6th House in Capricorn: PLace of Service, helping others, health care.
Not that I know much about astrology but it seems my path in this lifetime is pretty strongly pointed into the learning, thinking, researching area; and as a wounded healer I want to help make the world a better place (while at the same time needing a lot of solitude to focus on my spirituality).
How did my interest in natural health start? The wounded healer path, I had health challenges myself. Today I see them as a blessing, as part of my soul purpose. Actually they are/were neither good nor bad - they were just necessary to push me in the right direction for my life.
Disease really stems from the friction between what your soul wishes for your life and where your personality holds you back from this purpose out of fear.
After about 15 years of private research and studying how the body works, about supplements, nutrition, herbs, healing modalities, genetics and so on, I now finally formally enrolled in studying Holistic Health and Herbalism. And I am inhaling knowledge. I know I am now finally closer to my life purpose and I feel in flow. At the same time fighting my impatience with wanting to know everything now. I regret that I hadn't studied medicine back then like I had wanted when I was a kid. But I was too afraid and too sick. But the wish to learn about medicine had never left me, and it did send me down the alternative, natural path of healing.
Do I want to be a healer one day? I don't know. It would be lovely to have the purpose of helping others feel better and heal themselves like I did. But in the end I would rather want to encourage everybody to become their own healer. I feel it is important to not give away your responsability for your own mental and physical health. I know we are all busy but what else is more important than our health? Yes, money can buy you the best treatments but even the best doctors or healer can only do so much for you if you don't know yourself.
At least that's what I think at the moment. If there is anything I have learned over the years, then it's that nothing is set in stone. I make a discovery, reach a new stepstone, have a new epiphany - only to find out something else later along the road.
The biggest trouble for my kind of character is that I will never know everything. At least on this physical plane where we only use 10 % of our brains.
Health and Spirituality belong closely together. The more I healed my physical body, the more spiritual I became. The more you meditate and get aligned in your soul, the healthier you become. That's why I study Holistic Health, taking into account the whole person, mind and body.
Western Medicine has some good aspects. Yes, we can transplant organs, reanimate hearts, intubate non-breathing individuals, and generally keep people alive. But it is missing out on so many aspects of true health. How healthy is our current society? Looking at heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disease rates? Yes, we are alive but how is the quality of our lives? Western medicine is missing out on treating the whole person, the soul, and most of all: it is missing out on treating the root cause of diseases. It is treating symptoms, but suppressing symptoms is not healing.
So this blog will be all about true healing. Finding your root cause (spoiler alert: it's mostly toxicity and lifestyle) to find true health and happiness.
Taking care of your physical and mental health is the most important thing you can do.
Become your own healer!
