Kaur Thandi Birinder qualified in conventional medicine in 1986 and gained experience in hospital jobs, specialising in obstetrics and gynaecology while looking for a way to integrate healing of mind, body and spirit. “Starting with personal growth and development in 1996 and Reiki from 1997 – I am working towards my ideal of integrated healing combining conventional medicine and complementary therapies, providing holistic healing enabling individuals to find balance, well-being and harmony in their lives healing of mind, body and spirit. I trained as a Colour Breathing Practitioner in 2005.
My vision of integrated medicine is inspired by the WHO definition of health – ‘A state of total physical, mental, spiritual and emotional well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’. I qualified in conventional medicine in 1986 and then trained in various complementary therapies. While working in a variety of hospital jobs, I explored ways to integrate the individual as a whole – mind, body and spirit.
Complementary therapies work on the subtle energy system composed of energy centres and meridians. Research has suggested that patients who are motivated, willing to take responsibility and involve themselves in their own treatment, have better clinical response and recovery from illness. Integrating the two achieves disease management, health promotion and service management with lasting cost effective benefits and satisfaction for the health professionals and the patients.”
Birinder is currently an NHS GP based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.
