"I show people that they have the ability to rise above the storm of life that has captured and whipped them around for so long."
HI! I'm Dr. Sarah Ghekiere.
I received my Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences from Western Michigan University in 2013, and my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from National University of Health Sciences in 2018.
From the time I was 13, I knew I wanted to be in the health field. I had pneumonia for weeks before it was finally diagnosed. I went through four different doctors before one finally took the time to listen to me, which gave way to the missing piece the other doctors had missed. It was then that I knew I wanted to be just like her – a healer who LISTENS.
I have also always been interested in the unseen and deep inner knowing that is within each of us - even as a child. This interest deepened during my naturopathic training.
I saw patient after patient come in with symptoms mirroring the exact thing they were trying to run away from. They couldn't see the connection, yet once I shed light on what was happening, their symptoms cleared. I had a "knowing" that naturopathic medicine was not the end all for me. I believe my life to be a journey of discovering the connection between the mental/emotional/spiritual realms and its connection to the physical body.
As part of my journey, I chose to learn Traditional Chinese Medicine and am currently in the Masters of Acupuncture program at National University of Health Sciences. I will graduate next year, 2020.
I am also a Reiki Master Practitioner. I have been developing a connection with my Higher Self for the past few years by attending an intuition development class each week and practicing different forms of shamanic healing, while also doing and receiving the healing myself.
I spend a lot of my free time learning astrology and how it can be used as a tool in physical health. I believe there's certain aspects that help bring light to our own shadow sides where we stay unconscious. I believe our bodies give us hints of where we need to be paying attention and astrology is an additional tool.
"We can't know what we don't know, until we know it." < This.
I also look at astrology as a way to discover what you came into this lifetime to fulfill within your soul contract. I've learned when people start to deviate away from this plan, physical ailments occur in the body.
Don't let me fool you by all of the alternative talk, because I love "nerding out" over the bodies biochemistry and physiology as well. I often prescribe supplements to provide the body the added boost it needs in order to heal itself. This in addition to the greater picture is very important.
You will also find me roaming around a nearby forest preserve with my dog, Reece; barefoot and on the search for the darkest mud I can find. I am originally from a small town in Michigan near Lake Huron, where I grew up on 13 acres full of plants, trees, and animals – all of which gave me the love for nature I have today.
