My Beliefs:

I believe the body will find equilibrium if you give it half a chance. Let the relationships restore communication.

It is important that we tune into the matrix that carries our personalities and our intentions. We need to let it inform us and to playfully explore what it needs.

We are a collaborative network of cells. The physical structure in which we reside requires nourishment (substrates for function, and oxygen). It needs to eliminate what is not needed, receive what it does, and communicate with the whole.

Hormones, Neurotransmitters, and Inflammatory mediators are the communicators, informing, crosschecking, and setting the entire matrix into the state that is needed to best serve the whole.

Balance includes finding peaceful reconciliation between our physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
