Hi there. I'm Leilani. I'll share my story - and then I'd love to hear yours!
Almost 25 years ago, the dad of a kid on my hockey team saw me taking my inhaler. "Have you ever tried natural medicine?" he asked. "I don't have asthma anymore unless I go eat a burger with cheese."
It made no sense, but I was intrigued.
My mom drove me 2 1/2 hours each way to see the naturopath he knew.
I learned about food triggers, nutrition needs, herbal medicine, and stress.
I started to get better. I stopped taking pharmaceutical medications.
And so began this journey.
Another chapter opened when I was 18, and my doctor was encouraging me to go on the pill for birth control.
All that work I'd done to put only the healthiest stuff into my body and get off all the meds - only to take synthetic hormones? I didn't like the idea.
So I started asking around about natural birth control.
One naturopath recommended abstinence. (No thanks.) An MD told me that once we found the right pill, I "wouldn't feel a thing." (Not the point.)
Thankfully, I found someone who taught Fertility Awareness. The first time I saw my own cervical fluid, I said "Whoa..." out loud in my college dorm's shared bathroom. I've been talking about it in public ever since!
This healing and learning is still in process, but I've come a long way.
I've gotten healthy. I've studied naturopathic and Chinese Medicine and traditional martial arts. I've made a home close to the wilderness. And, I now help others in my clinical practice and through online education.
All my work is rooted in the wisdom of classical Chinese Medicine. I have a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine from NUNM, where I studied acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutrition, and began my study of dreamwork. I'm a Licensed Acupuncturist and herbalist. I'm also certified as a Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner through the Justisse College.
In my clinic, I provide treatments and education one-one-one. Online, I teach worldwide. At home, I'm a mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend who draws on these same tools for myself and the people closest to me.
