Highlights from today's episode include:

Diane Fownes 08:15

We have so much technology at our fingertips now, so much information that we can go and find on our own if we're proactive and self-directed to do so. That information sometimes is food for their soul. It's amazing how it opens doors for them to start to realize that maybe there's something else that I can do or try.

Diane Fownes 10:43

I think it's what fascinates me is even where we are right now, how far we've come what we're still learning, what we still have much to learn. When we think that we're masters at knowing pretty much what's going on inside our body and how stress affects us and how it affects our healing and what creates disease and what creates inflammation. There's still a lot we don't know. And that's what I think the average person still doesn't quite understand that we're still learning, we're still trying to figure out like, how our body systems work.

Diane Fownes 17:53

Oh, I've had some bodywork people come in to see me for at my aesthetic clinic and question, why would you ever do Botox on someone? Doesn't that kind of go against the grain with it being a pharmaceutical to with what you do with health and wellness and bodywork and I'm going no, this is what is the best outcome for the patient. And if I can get them out of pain immediately within two weeks, then we can work on the rest. And they can come back and do Bowen therapy and do TMJ work.
