Our team is honored to work with a global community of health experts — from surgeons in Thailand, to hypnotherapists in Canada. Each person puts forward their unique expertise and experience, and all for the same reason: to help people feel better and live better.
A few months ago, we opened up our blog to RingMD’s active community of health experts, so that they could have a platform to share their expertise farther afield. Through phone calls, e-mail and messenger correspondence, we’ve worked together to share content that can help the health experts on our platform grow and manage a business they love, and help the broader public learn more about research in mental health, and tips on how to feel better, fitter, more happy and mindful.
We’ve gone through and highlighted some of the articles that RingMD provider’s that have contributed to our blog below. If you have a previously unpublished story that details a health topic that you’d like to publish on RingMD as well, simply submit your story below.

Meet clinical holistic healer and therapist Daisy Bai
Vancouver-based clinical counselor, holistic healer, and therapist Daisy Bai discusses what mental wellness is all about in this article. In her opinion, the counselling process can be seen as a two-way journey where the counselor walks through the internal mind of the client with the client; introspecting on the client’s past to provide insight to the current situation while expanding pavements towards futuristic goals.
Daisy is experienced and enthusiastic about accompanying individuals, couples, LGBTQ, cultural minorities and immigrant families, and anyone else in need on their personal healing journey and spiritual growth. Bilingual in English and Mandarin, fluent in Japanese, her multicultural upbringings from traveling around the world have granted her profound openness to cultural diversities.
