Dr. Wei’s Philosophy of Care
“The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh
We are living in a remarkable time of unprecedented advances in technology and conveniences of modern living. We have the easiest access to information, improved and broader ways to communicate, greater convenience of travel, heretofore unimagined access to all types of entertainment and food choices, increased efficiency and productivity of work, and ever-increasing advances in medical technology. Yet, living a modern life is getting more and more difficult. Most of us are feeling more stress than we were ever meant to handle. This stress whether dietary, environmental, work-related, family-related, etc. has an immense impact on our holistic health and sense of well-being. This may manifest as weight gain, depression, anxiety, female hormone balance issues, fatigue, GI issues, and other chronic diseases. As advanced as today’s acute, conventional medical care system has become, it has largely failed to improve the general health and well-being of most.
"We were never designed for the sedentary, indoor, sleep-deprived, socially-isolated, fast food-laden, frenetic pace of modern life.”
~Stephen Ilardi, PhD
With our ongoing attempts to cope with living a modern life, many of us have fallen out of balance with how our bodies were intended to function. At Women’s Holistic Health LLC, our intention is to help you on your journey back to restore the intended balance in your body, mind and spirit. This principally involves initiating and maintaining lifestyle choices that empower you to find deep healing within yourself. We all need guidance and support to change our habits and beliefs around how we can best handle the stresses of modern day living.
So, how do we get there? The essence of functional medicine is contained in these two basic questions:
- What harms us?
- What makes us thrive?
The answers to those questions provide the knowledge and power to remove whatever causes imbalance and provide whatever creates balance. In the process, you will learn and understand how beautifully your body works, and what it needs to function optimally to achieve your best health.
After extensively exploring your personal story and discovering the underlying causes for your symptoms, Dr. Wei will design a program for you which will focus on five modifiable personal lifestyle factors:
So, that all sounds great, right? But how do we get there? How do we find the time and the support?
Women’s Holistic Health LLC was created to support you in all aspects of your journey. Your one-on-one work with Dr. Wei will establish the framework to address the issues which bother you most, and provide the encouragement and advice you need to restore balance in your life.
Because a wise nutritional plan is integral to healing the gut, a consult with our functional medicine nutritionist, Holly Niles, MS, CNS, LDN, CFSP, is incorporated into the initial consultation fee with Women's Holistic Health, LLC.
Essential to your success is having access to the help you need when you need it. You will be able to contact Dr. Wei through the patient portal and follow-up visits. You will also have the opportunity to continue to work with Holly Niles, and/or a functional medicine coach to learn how to make the powerful changes you need to create the health and life you really want. However, perhaps the most exciting and meaningful connections you will make will come through the opportunity to participate in small, intimate groups of other women who are also traveling the path of finding better health and wellness. Dr. Wei’s vision is to create the space for you to share about your experience and to receive support and advice from other women. We are all on this path together, and we are here to offer our most precious gift to one another, our presence.
