Dr.Whit’s wisdom

Dear Editor:Twenty years ago, Dr. Whitcomb gave me an introduction to some little-known facts. He taught me something about life that was quite shocking at the time. It was a truth that took years to fully understand: that I am more than my body.Instead, I am a composite of my body, my thoughts, my attitudes and moods, my truth, my wisdom, free will and my true nature. Numerous times he showed me how when one of those parts is out of balance, my body and the other parts of me can suffer. As his patient, I was taught how to better live my life, how to pay attention to the little things, how to strive for balance – and he gave me tools to help me do so. A true gifted healer he was. And because Whit cared to help me learn how to be the best that I can be, my life has taken a different track – a track to help others learn his valuable life lessons. It was like Whit was the principal of his unique version of the “school of life.”And those of us lucky enough to study under his loving guidance are forever changed. These rich life lessons are forever a part of us. As for me, I will continue to carry his spirit and wisdom into the lives of all whom I touch. Thanks, Whit, for leaving behind a legacy of richer human beings.Alicia SirkinAspen and Miami
