Dr. Heidi Bamford, BA, DC founded Traditional Wisdoms as a result of her own recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E. and her love of the traditional healing wisdoms that ultimately helped her to heal. Heidi’s style as a practitioner incorporates this wisdom and encompasses a positive approach to dealing with physical, mental-emotional, and energetic flow within the body.
Heidi qualified as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2006 (Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, IA, USA) after achieving her Bachelor of Arts in 2001 (University of Wisconsin – Madison, USA) followed by certification as an Applied Kinesiologist in 2007 (ICAK- Australasia). Heidi has practiced internationally in many countries including the USA, Australia, UK, Ireland, Myanmar and Portugal.
After being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in 2011, Heidi dedicated the last nine years towards her own CFS recovery as well as that of others. Heidi is now fully recovered from CFS and has gone on to become an accredited Chrysalis Effect Specialist Practitioner (2019), ILM Wellbeing Coach (2017), and certified Zen Yoga instructor (2020).
As a natural physician, Dr. Heidi Bamford blends many techniques she has learned over the years to bring a unique and highly personalised healing strategy for anyone looking to improve their health, transform their life and seeks to be supported in recovery from CFS, ME, or Fibromyalgia. Heidi is acutely sensitive to the needs she personally had in recovery and brings this compassion to her recovery support approach.
Heidi integrates her scientific-based education as a Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist, with her expertise as a CE Supported Recovery Practitioner, ILM Wellbeing Coach, and that from her own recovery experience and blends this with ancient wisdoms that are now after thousands of years regaining scientific credibility in life transformation and assisting in health recovery. Heidi incorporates many elements of traditional wisdoms from around the world such as aspects of Zen, Shamanic principles, and Toltec Wisdom, to name a few, into both her private consults and Sacred Healing Circle small group supported recovery approach.
