What do you get when you cross a Heilkunstler with a singer? Tammie Quick.
Boy, if the kids in high school could see me now! Once voted most likely to succeed, my becoming a doctor of anything was never in anyone’s thoughts. I was the girl in all the choirs, all of the theatre productions (and some of the detention rooms), and who won all of the artistic scholarships… but none of the academic ones! Yet being on tour in backroads Alberta, BC and Saskatchewan took its toll on my health, and that led to an obsessive interest in alternative forms of staying healthy.
Years later when my firstborn was diagnosed on the autistic spectrum, I was drawn further to alternative health care and away from the allopathic system of drugs and surgery. While I am passionate about both art forms (performing and healing), eventually I made the decision to go back to school with the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst.
I love this work! And I have been so blessed throughout the journey from student to practitioner. The remarkable healings that I have witnessed in my circle and within myself, not to mention in those who have honored me with the care and guidance of their Heilkunst journeys, leaves me in quiet awe.
“You only get the patients that you need.” This concept is a key teaching for Heilkunstlers and, as such, I (eventually) realized the opportunity I was being given when I kept attracting Lichen Sclerosis patients to my clinic. Once I opened myself up to the possibility that someone was trying to tell me something, my own healing journey (from Lichen Sclerosis – something I’d continued to suffer with, while successfully helping others) was ready to start! That healing began with a spiritual unfolding and eventually turned into a book that helps others to heal from this debilitating condition too. My book is entitled: How To Live Happily Ever After “Down Under,” the how-to thrive with lichen Sclerosis guide. In my practice I now specialize in the treatment of Lichen Sclerosis.
But the learning never ends! Because of my personal and professional interest in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, and because I have wonderfully inquisitive patients, I began a ketogenic experiment nearly three years ago. What an incredible journey! I’ve learned soooo much. Did you know that dieting is a trauma that will harm your metabolism – for life?? I didn’t either! But Heilkunst excels at treating past trauma, so this is a crucial component of my second book: Your Weight is Over, Dr. Tammie’s fast Quick guide to taking it off & keeping it off. I now specialize in the Heilkunst Weight solution too, which will help you reach (and maintain) your “happy weight” as well as heal systemic inflammation, which can be a root cause in most chronic illness.
No doubt about it, my post-secondary education has provided the clinical knowledge for the application of the appropriately chosen homeopathic remedies, given in perfect order… AND the universe gave me exactly what I needed to do just that, and more.
“If you don’t want to hit it, don’t look at it.”
This was practically a mantra from my driving instructor. But at the tender age of 16, I didn’t realise how right she was! It certainly applies when operating a motor vehicle, but it also applies in the rest of life. We have sayings like: “What you resist persists” and “Energy flows where attention goes.” “If you don’t want to hit it, don’t look at it” is the same advice.
This is an important concept for modern humans to understand because we have so many things vying for our attention – and our energy with it. Now more than ever, it’s important to be discriminating about where you’re going to spend your limited supply – of energy! Additionally, once you’ve discerned where you want to spend your energy, the act of looking at something – anything – and learning about it, thinking about it, talking about it or working in it, will continue to bring more and more information and opportunities about that VERY thing. “Looking” at it, helps to create it. It creates this invisible attraction between you and what you’re looking at, just like when you’re driving.
This may sound silly, but it’s so true. I can’t count how many times people have come into my clinic with a story about how their greatest fear happened or is unfolding, right now. Fear is a tough one and perhaps humanity’s greatest challenge. I’m constantly attempting to invent ways to help my patients not to focus on (ergo create) what they fear.
So, that advice from my driving instructor back in the day was, and is, an important spiritual law for avoiding giving forward momentum to something that I don’t want to create in life, as well as for being mindful of my thoughts and actions, so that I’m creating only what I want to “hit.”
This is impossible! There are so many “best” books!
I will say that my most important read to date is a book called The Bridge Across Forever by Richard Bach (William Morrow Paperbacks, 2006). I had never read anything like it! I was 19 years old and trying to figure out who I was and what the next step to the next part of my life was. Suddenly a book tumbled into my world that changed the way that I looked at everything! Indeed, when I went to find more Richard Bach titles, I discovered that the book store didn’t know which category to put them in – fiction or non-fiction!
The Bridge Across Forever was THE book that forced me to question what I believed in and why. School had never taught me such critical discernment, and I wondered why Richard Bach wasn’t required reading for graduating from high school, and becoming an adult with the right to drink and vote. Other books have the capacity to open one up like this one did for me, but this is the one that did it for me, and I am forever grateful. Not coincidentally, I read it to my boys when they were still young enough for me to read to.
