“I fell in love with Eastern medicine when I was in Dharmsala, India. I got very sick and suffered from a severe flu. I was told about this brilliant and well-respected Doctor who was the appointed physician to the Dalai Lama. I went to him a bit skeptical because I wasn’t yet versed in Oriental Medicine. He took my pulses — a major diagnostic tool in Chinese medicine — and through an interpreter he told me many things about both my health and personality that were true. I was stunned at what he ascertained about my past health history from my pulses alone. He spoke about my propensity to over-think and that I had difficulty staying still, and, without me mentioning it, that I had bronchitis in the not so distant past which was true. He gave me an Herbal prescription and in two days I felt considerably better. I was immediately intrigued and decided what field I would pursue … Eastern Medicine.”
