Experienced Care. Profound Healing.

“I am privileged to have studied under amazing healers; in Brazil, with my father who was a physician, treating the under privileged in the poor areas in Rio, to shamans in the rain forest, to crystal healers in sacred mountains, and African herbalists in Bahia. Then in North Carolina, I became acquainted with the Cherokee people and their amazing healing knowledge. At Yo San University, in Los Angeles, I studied with some of the top practitioners and professors in the field of Chinese medicine. In China I had the good fortune to study with acupuncturists and herbalist who were gracious enough to share their knowledge with me. In Thailand I studied under Mantak Chia. My primary objective is to use this knowledge to help people on their quest for health. To me a harmonious and beautiful environment is indispensable to achieving good health.” Dr. Judith Andrews, DAOM

The Oath of Sun Si Miao for Physicians of Traditional Chinese Medicine

As a Physician of Traditional Chinese Medicine:

    I shall look upon those who are in grief, as if I myself have been struck and I shall sympathize with them deep in my heart.
    I will not give way to wishes and desires but develop first a marked attitude of compassion.
    I shall not ponder over my own fortune or misfortune and thus preserve life and have compassion for it.
    Whoever suffers from disease and illness will be looked upon with contempt by people. I shall maintain an attitude of compassion, of sympathy and of care. In no way shall arise an attitude of rejection.
    I shall treat all patients alike, whether powerful or humble, rich or poor, old or young, beautiful or ugly, resentful relatives or kind friends, Chinese nationals or foreigners, fools or wise men.
    I shall not emphasize my own reputation and belittle the rest of physicians while praising my own virtue.
    Neither dangerous mountain passes, nor time of day, neither weather conditions nor hunger, thirst nor fatigue shall keep me from helping wholeheartedly.

With this oath, I shall fulfill my responsibilities and my destiny as a physician to each and every patient who seeks help from me, until I am no longer capable of fulfilling my obligations, or until the end of this lifetime.
