Gulf Breeze, FL – Dr. Bonnie McLean is the founder of Spirit Gate Medicine, where she combines ancient Chinese medicine, hypnosis, nutrition, shamanic healing and energy work to catalyze healing on a deep level for each unique individual.
Dr. McLean says she’s wanted to be a healer ever since she was a child. Her father belonged to the last generation of physicians that made house calls. Her mother was in the generation of nurses that still were able to take the time to touch their patients and to listen to them.
“I suppose growing up in the environment I did, it never occurred to me to do anything else other than go into the healing profession,” says Dr. McLean.
Dr. McLean says when she first started nursing in the 1960s, there was a lot of hands-on, but over the years technology took the place of touch and medicine became big business.
Dr. McLean says the ideal paradigm is the best of both worlds: using technology to make care more efficient while bringing the hands-on back into our hospitals and all medical care.
“In our culture, people are always looking for the magic bullet, the instant fix,” says Dr. McLean. “The patients who usually come in to see me are in a place in their lives where they have to take the bull by the horns.”
Dr. McLean is the author of Integrative Medicine: The Return of the Soul to Healthcare
“The purpose of my book is to bring these concepts into the lives of people that ordinarily might not be exposed to them,” says Dr. McLean. “I would like to bridge that gap.”
