Imagine a Shaolin monk with acupuncture needles riding on a Navajo horse from the ancient plains of a forgotten sense of healing and wellness. A quiet and unassuming master of somatic awareness and modern medical systems who suggests people get into cold showers, sober up and get with their whole selves. Hailing from the hinterlands of British Columbia’s rugged landscapes Michael Smith is both a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, a gifted martial artist and an experiencer of the hunting and trapping lifestyle of his aboriginal roots. In this deep interview he counsels us well as to the meaning of integrative health solutions and acts as our health detective always pointing the way with unique and meaningful stories culled from his own rich training in multiple disciplines. He asks us to envisage ourselves as the horse upon which the samurai sits with binoculars i.e. to a far more total sense of being in this world as dysfunctional and often addicted primates. He does it with compassion and care and most of all with knowledge. Don’t miss it! His website is here.
