The Top Article of the Week
When the Church Abandons You in Your Grief – Dr. Archer Atkins, ND
We’ve all been there at some point in our lives; where things haven’t turned out quite how we expected, or it just wasn’t our day. What was it that helped you through those tough times? Perhaps it was a best friend that let you cry on their shoulder, or a family member who was ready to listen? Maybe you sought the help of a therapist to find some clarity, or did you find you were alone, without anyone to support you?
Our “Best Article of the Week”, written by Dr. Archer Atkins, ND, details a time where she and her family were adjusting to some difficult changes in their lives and her feelings of being without the support of her community. In this deeply personal composition Dr. Archer provides insight into the minds of those dealing with tough situations without the support of their community or loved ones.
“Having others show up for you in your grief is a basic human need for healing”. As a Naturopathic Doctor I have always found that the most beneficial treatment I could provide was not found in a pill or tincture but rather was the support and compassion of a listening ear. Reminders, such as this memoire, help to highlight the simple healing powers we have as Naturopathic Doctors that don’t require a protocol or prescription, but rather include a dry shoulder and an understanding of the healing properties of just being there.
