Indigenous Health includes the practice of Aboriginal Medicine here in Beautiful British Columbia, where there are many bands of Northwest Native peoples, and where we now live on their unceeded territories. The country of Canada includes over 600 bands in total.
Practitioner Emily Isaacson started her career by offering seminars and workshops at the Indian Friendship Centre (now called The Mission Friendship Centre.) She eventually went up to XÁ:ytem Longhouse just East of Mission City, and became a practitioner in the pithouse, while studying the history of the Stó:lō people for nine months. There along with three other qualified practitioners in massage, acupressure, and energy healing, she established a program to invite the Indigenous and other community members to meet with her in the pithouse (built in the formal tradition to be an exact replica). In 2013 she wrote the book on Aboriginal Medicine after consulting with a Medicine Woman from Ontario, A Familiar Shore. This book was published in 2015 (Tate Publishing), and was given to many members of the Indigenous Community in all social classes.
Practitioner Emily Isaacson went on to found The Rainbow Program, a food suggestion website that attracted thousands of global readers and food enthusiasts. This program teaches you to eat by the rainbow, while focusing on naturally coloured whole foods, and excluding refined and white foods from the diet. It does this by promoting one rotation of all the colour groups for each white food group item eaten, to create balance. Notice that there are two websites that explain the principles of the program:
