• 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!

“Certified” Organic Herbs??

I get lots of questions about whether the herbs I use are certified organic. Following is the quick answer I send to those questions:

Some of my herbs are organic, some are not, for a variety of reasons. Organic certification can be applied only to commercially farmed herbs, which very often do not have the same medicinal properties as those which are wild-crafted. Organic certification standards vary from country to country and even from state to state. Certification is expensive, so many small growers whose standards and practices would qualify do not apply. As far as processed herbs (extracts, salves, etc) go, the quality of water, which cannot be “organic”, affects the quality of the final product. When my children were very small I remember one brand of organic baby food testing very well while another was awful; the ingredients were identical, so the difference had to be the water or the vessels in which they were prepared. It’s not unusual for some organic vegetables at some supermarkets to not test as well as commercial items; they may be older, come from further away, be irradiated for longer life, or be transported or stored in fumigated areas. I use muscle testing to evaluate quality. Labels can lie!
