As more and more people become disillusioned with a system of healthcare that seems to cater to the pharmaceutical companies, there is a growing interest in a more integrative approach. A form of care that places the patient at the center and addresses not only the physical ailments, but takes into consideration one’s emotional, mental, spiritual and environmental influences.
This week on the Inspired Woman Project, we are speaking with Tanya Beaubrun, a Family Physician and a Certified Wellness & Lifestyle Empowerment Coach. Tanya combines traditional medicine with alternative modalities enabling and empowering her patients to become an active participant in their healing process.
Although Tanya began her career as a traditional doctor, she eventually felt the calling for a different way of treating her patients. She began to explore a number of “alternative” modalities and now practices by using emotional components to diagnose physical ailments, allowing her intuition and her scientific background to lead her in her patient’s care. According to Tanya, this type of attention allows her to care for her patients as a whole person, rather than merely to treat them.
In many ways Tanya feels that she has been transformed by this practice, changing not only the lives of her patients but herself in the process. She displays such a deep knowing and faith in this interview, presenting our listeners a side to medicine that is both heartfelt and beautiful. I hope you gain as much warmth and insight from her as I did.
