Dr. Stacey Richards BSc, ND
Many of us seek to find that thing we were put on this earth to do. To live a life that is in alignment with our values; full of passion, energy and love. A life that makes us happy, fulfilled and most importantly give our lives depth and meaning. That thing doesn’t have to be grand but satisfying.
Being an ND is a rewarding and fulfilling profession. It’s a lot of hard work but anything worth having usually is. It’s given me the ability to take my patients on a journey to live their best lives. The first steps on the journey to better mental and physical health involves getting to a certain level of self awareness. It is that self awareness that leads you to learn more about how connected you are to your environment.
There is no separation between how you choose to live your life and the results you achieve.
The connection between your mind and body is just as important as the connection between your lifestyle and your body. Oftentimes, this is the part that is enlightening to my patients because they become empowered as they learn more about themselves on all levels. My role as as teacher, coach and cheerleader helps you along this journey and is essential to your success.There are many paths to get to that place. For me, asking how I can contribute to the bigger picture of life seemed like a strange question to ask since most of my life I’ve done the opposite. Many of us are more concerned about what we can get out of life instead of what we can give.
I teach my patients anything worth having requires daily effort and health is no exception. For me many aspects of the profession didn’t come naturally. But the parts that did has been pivotal to my success. There are 2 characteristics that flowed naturally and those are empathy and commitment.
I feel my purpose is to connect and to share. And this is the foundation of SMRT health.
