When I was in college and finally brave enough to reach out to doctors about the problems I was having with depression, PMS, bloating, unquenchable food cravings, stomach aches, eating disorders and extreme fatigue, I became extremely disheartened, as a common theme kept presenting itself with these unrelated healthcare providers. What I noticed was that I didn’t feel really cared about. The doctors that I visited didn’t seem to know my name or want to know much about me. They didn’t touch me, follow up with my care or have any ideas on how to help me. One doctor told me to go take a walk in the rain, another put me on birth control pills. I was baffled!
I was only studying psychology in my first few years of college, convinced that my problems were psychological; however nothing I read seemed to fit either. I was getting nowhere slowly! Though I was on a pre-medicine course of study, I didn’t see the relationship between health and what I was studying or learning.
My Start to Being a Naturopathic Doctor in Hawaii
After six years in undergraduate school, independent research and perseverance, I discovered Naturopathic Medicine school and I was completely elated. It was my dream come true. Upon completion of my four years at my beloved medical school, I made a firm decision that I would use all that I had learned in school as well as the understanding I had of how it feels to be in the chair of the patient. It is a place where one can feel hopeless, filled with despair, and completely untrusting of anyone in the medical profession, because of the experiences one may have had. I know what that feels like and I make it my life’s work to do things differently as a naturopathic doctor.
