I have to say that I’m very excited about starting this blog. It’s a combination of two great passions in my life: motherhood and natural medicine.
When I was a child there were two things that I knew I wanted to do when I grew up. One was to be a mother, the other to be a doctor. I can’t remember exactly when I developed my maternal instincts. Perhaps it was being the eldest of three sisters, or maybe it was born from my love of babies. The only thing I can be sure of is that as long as I can remember I wanted to be a mom.
On the other hand I can distinctly recall the exact moment I knew I wanted to be a doctor. I was 8-years-old, I was at the doctor’s office and I was very frightened. The doctor was so nice to me and she quickly put me at ease. My experience was immediately transformed from terrifying, to calm and comfortable. I knew at that moment that one day I wanted to help children who were sick, just like her.
So here I am today, a naturopathic doctor and a mother of two living in Beijing. It is both a wonderful and at times scary experience, and I look forward to sharing it with you.
