When I moved to the island of Bali in 2005, I offered my services in Bumi Sehat, which means Healthy Mother Earth, a free birthing center for poor and disadvantaged local women located in Ubud. There I began working with newborns, infants and children one day a week, putting to use the pediatric sho-ni-shin techniques I had learned from Dr. Miki Shima and my experience in treating children in the West.

It might have been a miserable start to the day in the heart of downtown San Diego. A heavy rain had soaked the large homeless population congregating near the intersection of Third Avenue and Ash Street as they waited for a free breakfast to be served at the First Lutheran Church on the corner. Bodies were sprawled in damp sleeping bags on the terrace above the church, where another line had formed for the free medical clinic that opened at 9am.

I always giggle a little bit (to myself) when someone comes into my office and informs me that they are a healthy eater. What exactly does that mean? Does that mean they eat sugar in moderation? And what's that, exactly? Does eating healthy mean they avoid meat? Eat whole grains? Avoid saturated fats? And really, is it possible to be a truly healthy eater living in modern America? I suspect not, actually.

This past December, I celebrated 11 years in practice. I seriously don't know where the time went. I feel beyond blessed and grateful to be practicing our profound and beautiful medicine and to be helping guide my patients restore a state of optimal health. I am sure many of you agree. However, as I enter yet another year of practice, I am really keen on finding more balance in my clinic.
