I am sharing these words from a fellow practitioner because I have done the same work for the same time frame, and still going strong today. Please take time to consider the options you have when you feel there are none. There are always options.
| quoted from Andrea Beaman: |
The work I do is essential to the health of my clients and for the world at large. First and foremost, I’m in the business of preventative healthcare and natural healing, and I’ve been doing this work for over two decades. I provide preventative and healing methods for a wide variety of diseases and conditions. Some examples include:
Heart Disease (over 15 million deaths per year!)
My job as a wellness practitioner is to understand the illness, including Covid-19, from an alternative and preventative perspective and provide natural ways to rebalance the body and heal using diet, lifestyle, and consciousness.
This knowledge is essential for a variety of reasons, many of which became abundantly clear during this coronavirus outbreak:
*People on lockdown couldn’t get out to visit a doctor, go for a blood test, or even get access to a hospital as many were overwhelmed with Covid-19 cases.
*For a wide variety of Covid-19 symptoms (poor immunity, dry cough, sore throat, loss of taste, and smell) people have access to medicine in their kitchen and don’t even know it.
*Beyond Covid-19, people are struggling with many other conditions and need support and guidance on how to manage them from home.
As a health coach and wellness practitioner, I provide service to clients. I care for their needs as they seek support for a variety of symptoms related to Covid-19 and other conditions.
My service is essential to the health and well being of people during this crisis and beyond.
Doctors and healthcare workers are doing work that is essential.
People preparing food are doing work that is essential.
Grocery store workers are doing work that is essential.
Delivery services are doing work that is essential.
Police and fire departments are doing work that is essential. Transportation workers are doing work that is essential.
Those people are getting paid for their service without any shame attached to it.
The work that preventative and alternative healthcare workers like myself and you, and many other wellness practitioners, do is also essential.
We are providing a service to PREVENT and HEAL and take the burden OFF an overwhelmed healthcare system.
As we’ve clearly witnessed, our healthcare system CANNOT handle the amount of stress that this virus presented to society as a whole.
So, whether it’s this virus or the next disease that overtakes the population, wellness practitioners of all kinds are providing essential service to help people make it through with their health, their life, and their sanity, intact. There is no shame in that.
I encourage you too, to get back to doing this essential work – you are needed in the world now more than ever.
