Hello! Today we are meeting with Katherine Wong, the founder of The Andean Apothecary. She is telling us more about how she spent the last 12 years immersing herself into her passion for natural healing and finally turned it into a beautiful entrepreneurial adventure.

 

 

 

To start, I am curious to know how did you become an entrepreneur! You are a sound practitioner, an energy healer and a flower remedies practitioner, how did you decide to leverage your expertise in those field with a more entrepreneurial approach?

 

Having worked in the medical insurance industry for 7 years, and after becoming a mother, I realized that I wanted to live a more purposeful life, creating a positive spirit. It was very important and clear to me that I wanted to spend more time with my son too.

 

I wanted to help people feel better, feel happier and live a balanced life. I was already consulting friends with my flower remedy blends and energy healing treatments, and gradually developed my passion into a profession, creating healthy, non-toxic and zero-waste products in combination with my customized flower remedy blends, that are inspired by my South-American background.

 

 

在开始之前,我好奇的想知道您怎们样一个创业家!您是个可靠的从业员、能量和花法治疗师,您是如何决定发挥 您在域的专业

 

在医工作了7年,而在成之后,我发现我要一个更有目的性的生活,要造正面的精神。我来也是非常重要和清楚,我想花更多的时间陪伴我的儿子。

 

我想要帮助人更舒适,感到快着平衡的生活。我已与我的朋友咨配的花法和能量治法,并渐渐地将我的展成一个专业造健康、无毒和零浪品,来与我客制化所配的花法做合。是来自我南美洲背景的启

 

 

 

What is The Andean Apothecary? What do you do exactly, what is your mission?

 

The Andean Apothecary brings the ancient knowledge of natural healing from the Andes (in South America). Most of these healing methods and tools were used by the ancient Inca and Quechua culture of Peru and Bolivia. Apothecary because we bring medicine, but the natural kind.

 

I create blends with flower remedies; specifically orchids near a sacred valley from Peru which makes everything even more special and connected to me. Flower remedies or essences is a vibrational medicine. Which more and more people are feeling the benefits of.

 

I believe we all can prevent illnesses and cure most of them in a natural way. I believe if we can live a happy and balanced life we will be able to achieve that. Nature has everything we need to be balanced. I want people to be able to feel good and positive about life.

 

 

The Andean Apothecary是什么?你做什么、你的使命是什么?

 

The Andean Apothecary来了来自安地斯山脉(南美洲)的自然法。大多数些治方法和器具被秘和玻利维亚的古代印加文化和克丘文化所使用。 Apothecary药剂师是因们带药,但是是天然的种

 

造了混合的花法,特是来字秘的一个神圣山谷附近的花,使一切得更加特而且与我更加有连结。花法或是花卉精是震能量医学,而且越来越多人感受到它的益

 

我相信我都可以防疾病并用自然法来治愈。我相信如果我可以着快平衡的生活,我将能够实现。大自然有我需要持平衡的一切。我要够对生活感到良好和极。

 

 

 

You are making “vibrational” candles; can you explain a bit more what does it mean and what are the benefits for people?

 

Flowers essence or remedies is a vibrational medicine that is usually taken orally to raise the vibration of the person who takes it. Every flower carries a specific energy and therefore can help us with any ailment we might be going through. For example if you are sad, there will be a flower that will raise your vibration to make you feel happier.

 

So all my candles are infused with different blends of flower essences carrying the energy or vibration of these flowers and orchids in it.

When you have one of my candles in your space the candle in it-self is emitting this vibration even if you don’t light it up. The energy is there for your space, and when the space feels good people around will also get this feeling.

 

 

你制造。您可以解更多那些是什么有他们对周遭人的益

 

花的精或治疗剂是震能量医学,通常以口服来提高使用者的振。每种花会都有特的能量,因此帮助可以帮助我解决我可能遇到的任何病痛。例来,如果你感到难过,有花卉可以提高你的振你感到快

 

因此,我全部的蜡都注入了不同的花卉精混合物,着含有些花花的能量或振。当你的生活空有我的其中一种蜡烛时,即使你没有点燃,蜡本身也会放振。那股能量也因此会存在你的空中,而当空有良好的感觉时,周遭的人也会有同的感受。

 

 

What is your personal background, were you always passionate about natural medicine?

 

I was born in Boliva and grew up in Peru. Both countries are very rich in culture and in natural ancient medicine. I was very lucky to always have a family member around me with a natural way to cure simple illnesses like colds, headaches or stomachaches. So I grew up with all these natural ways of healing that for us were so normal. Somehow I’ve always been against chemical medicine, the main reason being the untold side effects of it.

 

It was when I came to Shanghai that I realized how special is what I experienced back home and decided to learn more about it to keep my family healthy. I even studied basics of TCM to grow my knowledge on how food can help us heal too.

 

For me the natural way will always be the best way, as you won’t have any side effects unlike chemical medicine. I love the benefits of yoga, meditation, flowers, herbs, crystals, essential oils and water in my life.

 

 

你的个人背景是什么?你一直以来都天然医学如此

 

我在玻利维亚出生,在秘鲁长大。两个国家都有很丰富的文化和古老的天然医学。我很幸运在我身旁是能有一位家人用自然的方式治感冒、痛或肚子疼等简单疾病。所以我是与稀松平常的自然法一起大的。而不知怎的,我一直反化学医,主要原因可能是它数不清的副作用。

 

就是当我来到上海发现我在家经验是如此特,并决定了解更多以保持我的家庭健康。我什至了中医学的基本知,来了解食物是也如何可以帮助我治愈。

 

我来,自然法会永是最棒的方法,因与化学医学不同,你不会有副作用。我喜瑜伽、冥想、花卉、草、水晶、精油和水在我生活中的益

 

 

 

Thinking of flowers as a natural healing method is not quite natural for a lot of people nowadays... Can you share with us some interesting facts about the positive impact of flowers on our health and wellbeing?

 

I started using flower essences consistently, and I saw a major improvement in my wellbeing. The experience was so life-altering that I wholeheartedly embraced this beneficial modality.

Flower essences is not a new way of healing. It has been used by monks and nuns centuries ago,  and other people from ancient civilizations in many parts of the world. Old natural ways of healing are coming back.

Many traditional cultures, including TCM, understood that the mind and body are inseparable and that the health of one is intimately linked to the health of the other. Flower essences activate the innate healing power of the mind. It locates and transforms subconscious blocks and limitations around an infinite number of emotional themes. Since they are subtle energetic remedies, the essences tend to work mostly on the subtle and energetic aspects of ourselves, such as the acupuncture medians, and emotional states; Other than their efficacy, one of the primary advantages of flower essences is their safety; they are completely safe and appropriate for people of all ages, including babies. Animals respond incredibly well to flower essences, too.

 

Just as the beauty and fragrance of a flower uplifts our senses externally, the energetic imprint of a flower essence acts internally to uplift our mind and spirit. The essence of a flower works directly on consciousness to transform emotional challenges and blockages into personal growth. They often deepen our relationships with ourselves and all of life. These shifts in awareness can have many positive manifestations, such as remedying feelings of disconnection and loneliness. Flower essences contain many benefits that can help us shed the “old” to make room for a new and improved version of ourselves.

 

 

今,很多人来,将花作一种自然法并不是那么自然......你能否与我分享一些关于花健康和幸福的正面影响的有意思的事

 

我开始持地使用花卉精,并发现到我健康有大幅的步。经验了生活,使我全心全意地接受了种有益的方式。

花卉精不是新的治方式。在去数世,它一直被僧和尼姑使用,甚至是世界多地方的古代文明人。

很多传统文化中,包含中医学,都了解身心是不可分割的,而且一个人的健康与另一个人的健康密切相关。花卉精激活了心灵的治 。它发现转换潜意的阻碍和无数个情感主的限制。

是微妙活力的药剂,它的精往往在我本身的微妙和活力方面作出反。如同经络和情,除了功效,花卉精的主要点之一是它的安全性,它绝对的安全并适合各年龄层的人,包含儿。花卉精的翻也非常好。

 

就如同花卉的美貌和芬芳提升我的外在感官,花卉精的活力印在内部起作用,增的思想和精神。花卉精直接影响意,并将情感挑和障碍个人成通常加深我自己和所有生命的关系。些意转变可以有很多正面的表,如同治感和孤独感。花卉精含有很多益,可以帮助我们摆自己新和步的一面建立空

 

 

 

More and more people are getting interested in natural healing. What would be your advice for people that would like to do their first steps into those practices but don’t know where to start?

 

After studying basics of TCM I realized how old civilizations had the same idea on nurturing our emotions in order to keep a healthy body. If you are in China take advantage and take a course in TCM. My teacher Dr. Zhang taught me so much about how the right food in the right season can be a great preventative and healing tool. Nowadays you can find different mini TCM courses around town.

 

 

然而,越来越多人天然医学更有趣,尤其在中国,中医非常中的地方。于那些有意愿想要出第一步,但没有足且不知道从何开始的人,你会有什么的建


在研究了中医的基后,我意到古老文明在培养情以保持健康的身体方面有同的想法。如果您在中国,利用优势并参加中医学的程。我的老师张博士指我很多有关在什么正确的季和食物可以成一个大的防和治方式。 如今,您可以在城找到不同的小型的中医学程。

 

 

 

What are the biggest challenges you are facing in your entrepreneurial journey?   

 

Many people expect to have scented candles, as some people believe Flower essences are essential oils, though the two are quite different. Since flower essences are energetic, they do not contain a scent. So when they smell my candles they wonder why they all have the same sweet smell of honey. If people don’t know or understand about flower essences my candles will be just normal candles for them. Educating people about it has been a challenge for me.

 

Having amazing feedbacks from my clients is what keeps me going on offering my healing sessions and making my candles.

 

Life is energy and not so many people understand that yet. Like Albert Einstein said: Matter is Energy. Energy is Light. We are all Light Beings.

 

 

 

什么是你在创业路程中所面的最大挑

 

 

很多人期待有香气得蜡,因为许多人认为花卉精是精油,然他相当的不一。而因花卉精是有能量的,所以他不含香气。因此当他们闻我的蜡烛时,他会想什么它都有相同的甜甜蜂蜜香味。如果人不知道或不了解花卉精,那么我的蜡烛对就只是个普通的蜡。教关于些事,我是

 

 

从客那里得的精彩反是我继续提供治和制作蜡的原因。生命就是能量,但并非很多人理解。如同因斯坦(Albert Einstein:「物就是能量。能量很。我都是的众生。」

 

 

 

Do you have plans or dreams for the future of The Andean Apothecary?

 

I have so many ideas for The Andean Apothecary. New products and ways to make it grow.  These candles can clean the air! Everybody should have one at home.

 

 

你是否The Adean Apothecary的未来展已划?

 

The Andean Apothecary有好多的构想。新的品和提升它的方式。些蜡可以滤净空气!每个人在家中都应该有一个。

 

 

 

Do you have role models, or people that have inspired you in your work or life?

 

My grandmother who was the healer of all our family and my great great grandfather who was very famous in his small town for healing so many people. Both of them are great inspiration to me and my work.

 

 

你有榜或在工作或生活中激你的人

 

我的祖母是我全家下的治疗师,我的曾曾祖父因他治愈了很多人而在他的城中非常有名。他两人都我和我的工作有恨大的启
