IFS Podcast #8 with Alison Chen: Nature As a Path To Health

We live in a world where most of our problems are caused by the fact that when there is some kind of a dysfunction instead of getting to the root cause of it and treating it of the problem, we try to mask it by suppressing the symptom. We are used to taking disease as an inevitable part of life and we rarely question the cause of it. That’s why there are people like my guest today – Dr. Alison Chen. She is a Canadian board-certified and licensed Naturopathic Doctor from Toronto, Ontario. She believes invaluable health care integrates Western science with Traditional holistic medicine to provide individualized safe and effective natural treatments.

I spent 30 minutes talking to her, and I was fascinated. She has a way of helping you understand the details and then powered by your own knowledge, to take the best decision for your body, health and life. So don’t waste time. Listen to the podcast, get empowered and take your health in your hands. Because nature is the true path to health!
