381. A Balanced Path of Holistic Healing
As a toddler, her grandmother saw her intuitive powers and gift for healing. For years, Deborah felt she had to suppress her gift. “I knew I had to justify my healing abilities by getting a university degree.” Reaching the perfect balance between the science of medicine and the art of healing has been her life-long challenge.
Deborah Maragopoulos MN FNP, The Hormone Queen®, blends the science of medicine with the art of healing. Upon graduating from UCLA with a Masters in Nursing, Deborah studied nutritional science, functional medicine, quantum physics, genetics, neuro-immune-endocrinology, and metaphysical healing. Through clinical research and two decades of collecting empirical data, Deborah developed a unique holistic healthcare model blending naturopathic and allopathic therapies, as well as a promising nutraceutical product–Genesis Gold®.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
Although Deborah had known she had powerful intuitive abilities all her life and often used them to help her friends and family, “I knew I had to justify my healing abilities by getting a degree.” While studying nursing at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), she volunteered as a candy striper at a hospital. “I decided to become a nurse practitioner. That way I could do what the doctors were doing, but still get through school quickly and have the more wellness-oriented education I found in nursing education, rather than a disease-oriented education more typical of medical schools.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
A major early childhood event that continues to shape Deborah’s life came, literally, at her grandmother’s feet. “She was what might have been called ‘the village witch’ back in the day. Although no one called her that, they just knew she was special. People would come to her to interpret their dreams.” Deborah clearly remembers playing on the linoleum kitchen floor under a table where several women were seated. She saw drops of blood coming from one of the women. “I stood up – I was little enough that I could stand up under the table. I placed my hand on her belly, and told her, ‘Not this one.’ Unbeknownst to me, the woman had experienced multiple miscarriages. I later confirmed this memory with my mother, who told me that was the moment my grandmother knew I had the gift, and started to mentor me.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“I really believe if you’re doing what your calling is—and you’re not fighting it but you’re really going with the flow—it all just opens up. Everything just laid itself out for me at UCLA. Everything was ease and joy, and there was no stress with it. It was this amazing experience at a huge college, especially for someone from a small town.”
Steps to Success from Deborah Maragopoulos
1. Your inner voice doesn’t always talk. Often it’s a feeling most people feel in their gut. Learn to listen to it, in whatever way it comes to you.
2. When your intuition is talking to you, it’s often telling you to take action.
3. Pay attention to your perceptions and beliefs. “If I believe I’m never going to climb the mountain, I’m never going to climb the mountain.”
