We had the good fortune of connecting with Nathanael Armstrong and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nathanael, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
My greatest motivation for becoming a doctor and starting Rising Earth Medicine has always been to use whatever talents, skills or abilities I have to do the most good in the world that I can. I believe that we all have a unique set of qualities and we all have a part to play. For me, it is my greatest passion to help people achieve their best possible health.
If somebody is struggling with poor health, it gets in the way and affects everything else in their life. If a person is in good health, then they at least have the first part of what they need to be able to live their best life.
Rising Earth Medicine serves the community and the world by helping people achieve good health, so that they can pursue their own higher callings. I believe that we can change the world by each of us becoming our best self. It is my mission to help whoever I can to be healthy enough so that they can turn around give their own gifts to the world.
What should our readers know about your business?
The world is in need of compassionate and comprehensive wellness care, that treats each individual as a whole person, and helps with their health goals based on their own unique needs and desires.
Rising Earth Medicine exists to fill that need, and to help individuals and families find their best health. I spend time with every person to address the root cause of any health imbalance, and use natural medicine that works in harmony with the body to restore balance and good health. To assess health and find the cause, I use both standard medical lab tests as well as advanced functional medicine tests to identify what is going on physiologically and what might be getting in the way of good health.
To bring back good health, the approach taken depends on the needs of the individual. I will almost always spend time with people to address nutrition, exercise, sleep, and lifestyle. In addition to these, I will often use herbal medicine, targeted nutritional supplements, comprehensive protocols when needed, and frequency medicine. We are very excited to soon be offering Red Light Therapy and Lymphatic drainage.
Rising Earth Medicine stands apart from mainstream medicine. Unfortunately, the mainstream medical system is not set up for optimal health. True, in an emergency, Western medicine is what is needed and is marvelous. However, for preventive care and truly good health, natural medicine, and Rising Earth Medicine, have so much more to offer!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My family and I have had a great time at the Houston Zoo and the Houston Museum of Natural Science. We love the many parks and trails for playing, bike riding, walking and running. Tomball and Magnolia Farmer’s Markets are great. There are some wonderful dining options around! We like Bellagreen and The Wheel Kitchen for seriously delicious and also healthy food. Re:Bar Cafe is great for coffee, tea and refreshments.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My wife, Birdie Armstrong, who is an amazing and inspiring person. She has helped me in more ways than I could ever describe and I owe everything to her.
My family, who have been and continue to be incredibly supportive and invaluably helpful.
My many teachers, of many disciplines, some who have taught me directly and others through their written works.
