Dr. Sharp’s power to help people lies in his long journey into the healing arts. He comes from a lineage of physicians including his father, grandmother, and a great grandfather who was featured in Ripley’s Believe-It-or-Not for commitment to his patients shown by traveling great distances to make house calls. Dr. Sharp graduated from Harvard Medical School and was on the faculty of the UNC School of Medicine for 25 years, where he distinguished himself as a champion of social support for families and communities focused on the needs of disabled children. He learned early on the crucial role played by positive relationships in well-being.
In 1998, facing his own cancer, he broke the bounds of more conventional therapies to embark on a journey that would take him into the study of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, Shamanic healing, Functional and Lifestyle Medicine and, most recently, the techniques to heal trauma called Somatic Experiencing.
Says Dr. Sharp, “The driving force in my career has been to understand the root of illness. Over time, I have acquired a unique combination of tools to help my clients discover these roots and engage their healing. We work holistically in all the realms involved — metabolic, lifestyle, mindset, diet, exercise, and often most importantly – healing the traumas that trigger the fears and rage locking us in illness patterns.”
Dr. Sharp engages a limited number of clients each month who are eager to recover health and change their lives. With each client, he commits to a journey of overcoming the barriers to wellness. The client likewise commits to a process of learning the ways of nurturing – and enjoying – their well-being.
