On today’s podcast, we’re discussing Nature Cure and Skin. My guest is Dr. Ben Reebs. Raised in the Quaker tradition, Dr. Reebs grew up off-the-grid in central Washington state. Living close to nature in a family of healers, Dr. Reebs’ path began with a childhood steeped in medicine, exploration, and the power of the natural world. Dr. Reebs earned his doctorate of naturopathic medicine (ND) from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon.
Before naturopathic medical school, Dr. Ben Reebs was head cook at the Esalen Institute, a world-famous humanistic alternative education center in Big Sur, CA. While there, he had the opportunity to study mind-body medicine with prominent healers from all over the world.
With the experience he gained, Dr. Reebs healed himself of two life-long chronic diseases. Now, as a practicing doctor, he combines traditional healing wisdom with current scientific knowledge, enabling him to better meet diverse patient needs.
During this interview, we discuss some of the laws of vitalism and principles behind Naturopathic Medicine. This leads us into talking about the amazing attributes of skin and how we can heal skin with nature cure, including hydrotherapy and embrace a truly holistic approach to skin.
So please enjoy this interview…
