Dear Dr. Smith,
One of the things I so appreciate about being treated by you is that you look at my body and my testing as part of an entire system, rather than something that is operating on its own.
For example, I have struggled more with my blood sugar lately. If I went to a physician who practices Western medicine, they would look only at that one number.
I know I would be accused of doing something wrong and not taking care of myself properly.
I am so thankful that you see that higher number as a sign of my body healing and detoxing itself.
You know that I’m taking care of myself and that the number will get back to where it’s supposed to be once my body has healed itself.
I like that you understand that all our body systems are working together and that something else, which seems unrelated to most people, may have to be healed before my blood sugar will come down.
I like how your extensive understanding of how body systems work together and how the healing process works means that there is no judgment about any of my testing being “off”.
This is the only place I feel safe to share all my health concerns; and the only place where my body has found true healing.
Thank you so much for all you do to take care of your patients!
Dr. Smith’s Reply to Faith
Dear Faith L.
Words cannot express the depth at which l am touched by everything you wrote. I have waited 40 years to receive the quality and content of the feedback you have given me. Thank you so much, Faith, for everything you said.
Everything you said is exactly what l have always strived for in helping you and others.
Knowing that l have provided that safe, trusting, and effective healing place for you means everything to me.
Knowing that l am helping you understand your own unique healing processes and how your body works so you may work with your biological and biochemical processes and have peace and trust in these processes is very rewarding for me.
Faith, your commitment to excellence in the care of your mind and body is inspiring and your discipline in applying what you have learned through me, and will continue to grow in learning and applying this knowledge is admirable.
To work with more and more clients with your commitment and discipline has always been my goal, as well as helping those who may not be there at the onset, but who have this desire and potential to achieve.
And, Faith, thank you for helping me fulfill my mission as quoted by Winston Churchill, “Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have.” (1943)
