Michelle Barrial  (06:06):

So really we have this energy flowing through us and then there's energy all around us in our environment. So you're really connecting to that universal energy. And what you're doing is you're acting as a channel so that the energy flows through you. And that's where you can sense if there's blockages in the person's, I call it their highway, their bio highway. So if you can sense that there's a blockages much like traffic it's blocked sometimes and backed up, it's the same way with our body. So when you can sense that there's a blockage in the area due to a physical symptom, or again, due to some kind of spiritual or mental block, then what I do is just transmit the energy through myself that I channeled it as a channel. And then that's when I can feel that it starts to break up or sort of dissolve, I could feel and have that sensation that it's, it's opening up the channel.

Michelle Barrial  (17:42):

So our conscious mind is what we're in most of the time, but in reality, our subconscious mind is the mind where your memory is longterm memories, part of where your imagination is. So, and it's also where you have a lot of beliefs from childhood traumas and things that you don't remember that come up that are still affecting you today as an adult.

Michelle Barrial  (40:02):

So in my book, I talk about the ways that you can create a healthy life, body minded spirit. So I talk about how to relax physically like mind hacks for sleeping. I talk about breathing how important it is to, to maintain your breath control, particularly when your emotions try to take over, and then you wanna help yourself to be calm again and, and feel like you're not losing control, but rather that you're are in control of your emotions. So I teach steps in there for breathing with a few exercises.


About Michelle Barrial:

Dr. McPhie's passion for medicine and healing began at a very young age growing up in Zambia and South Africa.  Building  upon her love of the natural world and science, she  completed her undergraduate degree in Biology at McGill University, and then went on to complete a 4 year study of natural medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, completed 2 years of clinical practice in Toronto, and then returned to the West Coast  to continue her career. She has operated a successful family practice for over 20 years seeing patients of all ages from all over the lower mainland, across Canada and abroad. 

Dr McPhie lectures frequently at universities, colleges and to the public. She has a passion for creating connections and community. Dr. McPhie believes loneliness and isolation are an under considered social determinant if health.  Our health suffers greatly if we are lonely and lack connection.  As a result, Dr. McPhie does workshops with teachers and community groups where play, active learning, creativity and connections are used to find solutions and reduce loneliness in vulnerable populations.  She believes that connecting people to themselves and each other is powerful medicine for keeping us healthy and happy.

She was the recipient of the David Schleich President's award of Excellence and the Dr. Patricia Wales award for her significant contribution to the development of the naturopathic profession in Canada.  She was also recognised by UBC as Mentor of the Year for her many years as a mentor in the nutritional sciences program.

Dr. Mcphie is very passionate about treating a wide variety of conditions for the whole family with naturopathic medicine.  She has a general naturopathic practice and therefore treats a wide variety of conditions and concerns. Dr Mcphie is an avid supporter of children's health and prevention.
