Treating the “Hole Person”.

Preview of “Treating the "hole Person" copy”I recently attended a presentation by Jeff Campbell, a friend who is an Acupuncturist.  His main focus in the talk was about how he and his wife, Heather, a Registered Dietician, approach their patients as “whole people” and prescribe a plan with that in mind.

Meetings… We’ve all had to attend a meeting that wasn’t our first choice of things to do.  I spent most of my working career in insurance and believe me, most of the ones I attended fit that category.

I saw a notice on a bulletin board recently announcing the time and place for a Board Meeting.  I couldn’t get it out of my mind.  I don’t even know what the Board Meeting was about.  Continue reading THE MEETING OF THE BORED.
