I believe that I have the right and the responsibility to partake in healthful living. This includes being in right relations with all life forms, my environment, and in honor of my ancestors and future generations. My thoughts and actions are collectively shaping the world I live in and the world that future generations will be living in. I am in charge of these choices. How shall I weave my dream of the future?
I believe strongly in the mind-body connection. I do my best to treat everyone and everything in the way I would like to be treated, even if they communicate differently or in a way I can’t hear. I understand that my personal reality may not be the only reality, therefore I always act from love and a positive regard for the greatest good I can see. How am I treating myself? Am I loving to myself, to my temple that is my body, given to me by the Great Spirit, God or Goddess? It is time to transform the patterns that separate me from my true self, from others and from the Great Spirit. At this time in the world, this requires a commitment to resolving deeply conflicting programs and emotions within me and in the outer world. If I want to change my life, I must change the choices I make in my life by walking and talking in a way that honors the sacred in all things.
While on this path to healing, there are many crossroads to navigate. Currently, I am forced to make choices for the greater good of the work I do as a mother, partner, daughter, sister, friend, neighbor, minister and healer. These choices may not always be accepted by everyone but it is my promise that I will always navigate them with integrity, with utmost consideration to the deeper ethics that guide me, and with the all important intention of “first, do no harm”.
That being said, the planet is in a healing crisis and so are many of the life forms on the planet. The “symptoms” that come along with healing are not within my control. Sometimes healing is in the form of amazing relief of pain and suffering. Sometimes, things get worse before they get better. Sometimes, “symptoms” of healing are uncomfortable, particularly when they allow the up-welling of deep emotions long held back. Often, releasing these chemical, physical and emotional stresses from their seats in the mind, body and spirit can be very challenging. I do my best with the skills I have to facilitate a healing experience in a way that feels safe. Though I aim to complement, and integrate, western medical treatment and diagnosis, many people choose to step out of this box altogether. Some find that past western treatment and diagnosis has not been helpful, worse harmful. Some find that the choices they are being offered do not feel acceptable and they are seeking a more natural option. Some of my skills are conventional and licensed by the state and some are “unconventional” traditional medicine techniques not governed, nor supported, by current health care structures. I offer what I feel the best options are, from my full knowledge, giving you an empowered choice in your care. Anything less of an offering would be untrue to my faith.

In fact, I oftentimes am able to negotiate a lower rate not available elsewhere.
This true path is one of ease when I can let go. I can’t guarantee I will always make decisions that will be comfortable, but you are welcome to join me on this journey.
Yours in Service,
Dr. Nicole “Rainbow Woman” Andrade
