• YOU can become your own primary health care provider!

    Natural medicine is a vast improvement over contemporary care, but natural health is even better. My intent is to provide the tools and information you need in order to duplicate my successful experiences, and to offer you the comfort and peace of mind that has been such a blessing and security to my family.
  • Whatever form of natural health supplement you choose, be sure to educate yourself on all aspects of your health care. Let your diet and your attitude be the foundation for a life of wellness, not disease. When you don’t feel well, look for the root causes rather than seeking to simply substitute an herb or remedy for your medication. If you are taking medication for a serious condition, consult with someone well trained in herbs and alternatives before making a substitution and stopping your prescription. Your body will need time to reestablish it’s awareness that it is required to function!

FAQ: So, If I Just Drink Lots of Herb Tea I’ll Be Okay?

Depends on your personal needs, but not likely.
Teas extract only the water-soluble properties, leaving behind many of the health benefits of most plants. Teas from fibrous portions of the plants, like roots and bark, actually need to be boiled to get their value, whereas that would be too harsh for leaves and blossoms. Another issue is the quantity you generally need to have any real impact. When I was pregnant with my first child, the midwife had me drinking a quart a day of raspberry leaf tea, which tastes mostly like dirt. Taste is the final blow. While something simple, like mint or chamomile, is soothing and enjoyable in its own right, many herbal teas really aren’t. Check the label on a typical “herbal” tea, and you’ll find “natural flavors” as an ingredient, which generally are not “natural” at all.
