The Power of MEDS and RX: Natural Interventions for Health and Healing

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, we often find ourselves inundated with prescriptions and medications from our doctors and pharmacists. However, what if I told you that there's a different kind of MEDS and RX that can work wonders for your health? Let's delve into a holistic approach to wellness that encompasses Meditation, Exercise, Diet, Sleep, Relationships, and Supplements.


Meditation isn't just sitting cross-legged and chanting "Om." It comes in various forms, from deep breathing exercises to mindfulness practices. Scientific studies have highlighted its profound effects on our physiology, including stress reduction, improved mental health, and enhanced emotional well-being. Incorporating meditation into your daily routine can yield a myriad of benefits for both mind and body.


Physical activity isn't just about getting a sweat on; it's about releasing those feel-good hormones called endorphins. Regular exercise not only boosts mood but also strengthens muscles and bones, improves cardiovascular function, and reduces the risk of various diseases. Whether it's hitting the gym, going for a run, or practicing yoga, find a form of exercise that you enjoy and make it a part of your daily life.



As Hippocrates famously said, "Let food be thy medicine." The foundation of our health lies in the foods we consume. However, with the industrialization of food production, many essential nutrients have been stripped away. Opting for whole, nutrient-dense foods can provide the energy and vitality our bodies need to thrive. Remember, what you put into your body matters.



In a society that glorifies hustle culture, sleep is often overlooked. Yet, adequate rest is vital for our overall well-being. Quality sleep promotes cellular repair, regulates hormones, supports heart health, and boosts cognitive function. Aim for at least 7 hours of sleep each night to reap the benefits of this natural healer.




Nurturing meaningful connections with others is just as crucial for our health as any medication. Strong relationships have been linked to lower rates of anxiety and depression, increased self-esteem, and improved overall well-being. Take the time to cultivate and cherish your relationships—they're worth investing in.



In today's world, supplementation can bridge the gap between what our bodies need and what our diets lack. Whether it's whole-food nutrients or herbal remedies, supplements can support our body's natural healing processes, bolster our immune system, and restore balance to our systems.


In conclusion, embracing the power of MEDS and RX—Meditation, Exercise, Diet, Sleep, Relationships, and Supplements—can transform your health from the inside out. By prioritizing these natural interventions, you can embark on a journey towards holistic wellness and vitality. Remember, your health is your greatest asset—treat it with the care and attention it deserves.

After two decades as a practicing pharmacist, Dr. Shipe realized that many of his patients weren't improving; rather, they were worsening due to medication toxicity. Recognizing the urgent need for change, he shifted his practice to natural medicine, concentrating on women's health as his specialty. This critical choice marked the start of a fascinating journey into holistic medicine, in which Dr. Shipe aimed to revolutionize healthcare by combining ancient wisdom with modern thinking.

Understanding the complexities of women's health and the need for a more individualized, holistic approach, Dr. Shipe curated a selection of Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies aimed at addressing the underlying causes of health imbalances. From acupuncture to herbal medicine, each aspect was carefully chosen to provide balance and restore harmony to his patients' lives. Thus, Women's Traditional Chinese Healing evolved as a safe haven for women to begin their transformation journey toward optimal health and well-being.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"Dr. Shipe is truly one of a kind (and I mean that in the best way possible). He is SO knowledgeable and understanding and genuinely cares for his patients. After struggling with Western medicine to treat the same problem I’ve had for decades, I decided to try a more holistic approach and I am so happy that I did. I’m so grateful to have found this practice and I’m going to keep coming back."
