David Kirkpatrick, PhD, the founder of Guidance for Wholeness, is a Board certified Quantum Naturopath Coach who started his exploration of alternative healing when he and his wife were diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2004.  This led to his training in Quantum Biofeedback, BioSpirituality, Matrix Reimprinting, Spiritual Direction, Quantum Techniques, and many other energetic and spiritual healing techniques. Today neither he nor his wife show any symptoms of Lyme Disease and both enjoy good health.


Dr. Kirkpatrick, a Harvard trained lawyer, has a doctorate in Alternative Medicine, a doctorate in Traditional Naturopathy, and a Ph.D. in Natural Medicine.  He is trained or certified in numerous other healing modalities and meditation practices, but believes that a return to full health is often less dependent on his training and experience than on the active participation of the client.  It is his belief that the body can heal itself if all barriers to its healing potential are removed.  In many cases this means that the client needs to be an active participant in the healing process.  He is most excited about empowering clients to take responsibility for their health through lifestyle change and deeper self-knowledge and personal awareness.


In addition to working with individual clients, Dr. Kirkpatrick offers an 8-week training in Skills for Health and Longevity designed to give individuals greater skills in working with a practitioner or even for healing themselves.


Dr. Kirkpatrick is not a traditional medical doctor and does not diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any medical or psychological disease, disorder or condition.  He works primarily at the energetic and spiritual levels and is not a substitute for standard medical, chiropractic, or psychotherapy treatment.   Many clients come to him to supplement the care they receive from traditional medical professionals or for help dealing with long-term chronic ills.  Many of his clients come to him to deepen and enrich their lives, to attain peak performance in athletics, business, or life, to prevent the recurrence of health issues, and to increase their longevity and vitality.


“As we get better at understanding how little we know about the body, we begin to realize that the new big frontier in medicine is energy medicine.  It’s not the mechanistic parts of the joints moving.  It’s not the chemistry of our bodies.  It’s understanding for the first time how energy influences how we feel.”
