Most of the people we meet in our restaurants on a day to day basis are super busy humans. It’s hard to find enough time in the day to take care of ourselves, but it is essential we do. Stress and health issues can get in the way of feeling amazing, which is really what life is all about. Over the years we’ve built a team of experts around us that have helped us thrive. Here is a list of resources that can be a starting point to viewing health in a whole new way. With these experts, you may gain a new understanding and perspective of your personal health.
On a personal note, my twin sister and I were born at 4 lbs and we had a tough time thriving. My parents tried all sorts of medicine and nothing was working. We were colicky, underweight, unable to digest, and very sleep deprived. Finally at 6 months old my parents were introduced to Dr Philip Incao and this is where our health journey begins. A homeopathic doctor, Dr Incao built his practice around getting to the root cause of a health issue and treating the problem with his patients’ constitution in mind. With one homeopathic remedy, food abstinence and a medicinal bath, my twin sister and I were immediately relieved of all of our symptoms.
We had a unique childhood in that my parents gained a perspective on health and medicine that was ancient in practice but rare in the modern world. Food was medicine and homeopathic remedies and lifestyle adjustments were the cures should we come down with any viruses or illnesses. The idea behind this resource list is to offer you the connections we have made over the years and hopefully complement the journey you are on to achieving wellness and feeling amazing.
This post is dedicated to my childhood doctor, Dr. Incao who passed away February 28, 2022.
