While going through a chronic illness we often focus on the physical symptoms and the physical causes. Whether the emotional and spiritual aspects are part of the illness, or a bi-product of it, the spirit is often over looked in Western Medicine. Chinese medicine views the spirit or “shen” as our consciousness, mental functions, mental health, vitality, and our "presence". One of the most important things in recovery from a long illness is to find ourselves again, but there is little guidance on how to do so. Dr. Lisa Weleschuk will discuss the spirit and its importance in our health journey.
