Research and Trusted Sources

One of the hardest things to know when you start learning about alternative health care is who and what is a good resource.  We all know the internet is filled with everything.

Many of my patients and my family ask for recommendations from people and companies that I use and trust.  Below you will find my vetted list.

Who makes a list? Teacher, companies, and products I use myself and have good relations with and research and another article I have vetted as a trusted source of information.  This list may include things that I am not currently using, no longer use or ideas I may not fully agree with, but I believe the source is good to the best of my understanding.

I always recommend using my suggestion as a stepping-off point but use your intuition, comfort level, and best judgment as to your guide as to what is best for you.

Your website is either helping you or holding you back.  I had a WordPress website that I liked, but it was frustrating and overwhelming to update it and change ideas.  Then I tapped into Ryan's group program at Maple Creative.  In just four weeks, I built a website that I understood.  I now have the confidence to edit, design, and explore new ideas—Ryan's approach to teaching and collaborating made all the difference.  I now have the language to ask for what I need to design what I envision, and when it is more than I understand or can manage, Ryan and his support team have my back.
