My name is Marteen, and I’m the founder of Soul Being.
Please allow me to welcome you! I speak on behalf of the entire Soul Being family when I say that we are so glad that you’re here. If you’ve been longing to connect with a community that values health, well-being, and collaboration, you have come to the right place.
Every journey begins with a single step, and here’s how this community was started…
I come from a family of Healthcare Professionals — my mother was a registered nurse, my older sister is a behavioral psychologist, and my brother in-law is a medical doctor and surgeon. I’ve learned that as a family, we are a complete composite of mind, body, heart and spirit.
I’ve also learned that the doctor doesn’t always have all the answers.
I’ve seen my friends, family, and clients give away their power to an authority to tell them what their diagnosis is, that there’s no hope, and they might as well resign themselves to whatever their health problem is.
And yet, at Soul Being we believe that it’s only through self-empowerment, exploration, trusting in, and consulting many different types of practitioners, that we can begin to piece together what is the best personalized approach for each of us.
Soul Being was founded with the intention to heal the brokenness that exists in medicine today… and to stop the polarizing of Eastern and Western philosophies and approaches to care, using technology to bridge the gap. As Thomas Edison so graciously put it in 1903, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Soul Being is a tool to break the cycle and unify the fragmented health and wellness marketplace.
Like many of my peers, I experienced first-hand as a Wellness Professional in private practice, the challenge of profitably running a business while focusing on providing quality patient care. I’ve witnessed the confusion of patients looking in an over-saturated field for help on understanding what approach is best to take for them.
Soul Being fixes this problem by bringing together a community of healthcare professionals and the conscientious consumers, in one platform and one community. Our mission is: to educate, connect and provide holistic health options to treat the whole person.
