Retirement from conventional clinical practice is not the end of medical practice. It could be a start of an unconventional continuing practice in a natural setting that smells of fresh air, not of sterile environment reeking of chemicals. A limited consultation time is not even a concern. Nature provides the natural-walled facility that is:
- relationships nurturing,
- conducive for sleep and stress management,
- providing numerous physical activity stimuli and
- perfect for the body-gut-brain-soul nourishment.
In such a setting, a retired physician could immerse more into Culinary Medicine and have a freer Lifestyle Medicine practice unencumbered by organizational restrictions. I better throw in Environmental Medicine too! It has gotten too complicated now. Let’s make it more complete practice but simpler -HOLISTIC MEDICINE This is what my career path brought me. And as I transition from being quinquagenarian to sexagenarian in few years time, life is getting more interesting. Having left the rat race behind and headed to a laid-back but more enriching life, I grow older rejuvenated and revitalized to continue carving further this new path.
I didn’t know that this new path entails starting this blogazine when my husband gave me A Gift.
As I start here, let me share with you Our Story.
