Although I continued working in the naturopathic student clinic during this last break from school, I made sure to fully take advantage of the weekends and make them seem as much of a “break” as possible. I drove home to visit my house and go camping every weekend. I enjoyed delicious meat and veggies on the grill, walked around the campground, visited the local sandy beaches, relaxed in the lawn chair, watched the chickens roam the backyard, enjoyed campfires, watched the stars, slept soundly, and danced at the campground’s weekly dances. I even extended two of the weekends so that I had more time to drop into deeper rest and relaxation. Even though this was not a traditional break, I still found the weekends particularly special.
As I now officially begin my last trimester of the naturopathic medicine program, I am prepared to continue learning and applying my knowledge in the naturopathic student clinic. I also feel an incredible sense of focus on my studies and the profession in general. In these next couple of months, if you are seeking a naturopathic intern at the clinic—either for a presumed or known health issue, health optimization, functional medicine testing, or a freshman physical—I would love to work with you! You can request me as your intern when you call the student clinic to make an appointment.
Here’s to the beginning of my last trimester at NUHS!
