So, what do you do?
I often get asked what type of “healer” I am and why I started the national Holistic Chamber of Commerce (HCC)…
This pre-supposes that 'holistic' refers only to healers. From my point-of-view, there are holistic ways of doing business as well as holistic health and wellness experts. Given the state of today's world, I want an attorney with holistic attitudes as much as I want a massage therapist to keep my body in tune. I prefer a bookkeeper with similar values just as I prefer healthy eating and exercise for staying fit.
Why I got Involved~ By Darlene Merkler
By Darlene Merkler, Merkler’s Consulting Services. Darlene was our first associated HCC Chapter President in the Inland Empire (CA)!
Initially, I couldn’t find any options… When I was diagnosed with osteo-arthritis and told by my medical doctor that there was nothing that could be done for me-- that I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 55.
Eventually, after asking everyone I came in contact with about other options, someone mentioned Acupuncture and Massage. So, I tried them both and they helped a lot.
I also tried Reflexology, Meditation and other holistic approaches to healthcare.
