We are meant to be in good health. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, said that natural forces within us are the true healers of disease. All health problems, illness, and disease are the result of an imbalance that disrupts the way our body functions. Health and well being can only be achieved and maintained by treating the entire person-mind, body, and spirit.
Who we are
Teresa Palmer has been in the healing profession for over 30 years. She is a registered nurse and nationally certified nurse practitioner with certifications in basic life support and advanced cardiovascular life support. Teresa pioneered the role of the nurse practitioner in the acute care (hospital) setting and created a hospital-based nurse practitioner role in cardiac surgery. Through her work she became the role model for other nurse practitioners and graduate nursing students and was asked to assist in developing a graduate nursing program for acute care nursing practitioners. Teresa has been tapped on numerous occasions for keynotes and speaking engagements, interviews for professional nursing journals, and even a video used by graduate nursing to travel to a rural village in Romania to set up the community’s first medical clinic.
Throughout her years in nursing, Teresa has strived to combine her knowledge of medicine with a holistic, spiritual approach to health and she has followed leaders in the field. She has worked in cardiology units with Mehmet Oz, studied spirituality with Deepak Chopra, and practiced yoga with internationally renowned Sri Dharma Mittra. Teresa is a Certified Yoga Therapist through the American Yoga Academy with a specialization in health and medical concerns. She firmly believes that people tend to give away a great deal of personal power and control when it comes to their health and rely too heavily on the medical system and medications to “fix” them. Through counseling, yoga, and meditation, Teresa helps her clients regain and hold onto their personal power with regards to their well-being.
Teresa is a frequent guest on WBAI radio where she offers advice on alternative approaches to health management. She hosted and produced WBAI’s Your Spirit, Your Health and The Power to Heal and she has been a guest on WBAI’s The Positive Mind with Armand DiMele.
Recently she also created a CD titled Meditations for Well Being to help others discover how meditation can positively impact a person’s life and overall health.
