Dr. Ben Reebs: A quantum talk on vitalism
and individualized healthcare
Dr. Ben Reebs was a classmate in Naturopathic Medical School who's ways of thinking and practicing always intrigued me. His "vitalistic" approach to healing was one that I have always strongly believed in as well, and his background and path into the field of naturopathic medicine is an inspiring one.
Some important take aways include...
You are a wave, not a particle
There is no one-size fits all approach to health and healing!
How and why individualized vitalistic medicine is the way of the future (and past!)
Some of great tips that are extraordinarily applicable to anyone in this world today
How and why a connection to nature is so important to health
I appreciated how this interview was much more conversational as we traversed many topics to come up with new ideas and visions for our way forward into a healthier and happier world.
