Do you love sitting down with a nice book and a cup of coffee? Do you hate having to read a PDF on the computer or an e-reader? Do you want to learn all about one herb a month on a deep and profound level WITHOUT having to print a PDF for your self?
As you may or may not know I own both this site and a monthly herbal e-magazine and herb box subscription called Natural Herbal Living. This is my brain child. My way to bring a new way of learning about herbs to the people, because herbs are the peoples medicine. Outside of the latest health fads, herbs lie, and wait for us to come back to our healing roots.
This is kind of where Natural Herbal Living came from. I was told by doctors I was infertile (PCOS and Endometriosis), fat, and obviously lying to them because if I was doing what they said I would be losing weight. This really made me mad and was just the push I needed to start to researching and focus on healing my self. I discovered real food and stopped eating that processed diet junk, got off of the hormone and weight loss pills, finally started losing weight and GOT PREGNANT.
Now that that fire was lit I started reading more and more about herbs. Taking classes here and there. Working with a local herbalist and I discovered a passion awakened. I always had wanted to be a healer. Growing up I wanted to be a vet, but after working in a vets office decided it wasn’t the right job for me. I was pre-med in college and worked in a hospital as a CNA and Telemetry Tech – until I hurt my back and patient care was a fantasy of the past. My newest passion of herbalism helps me to help people heal them selves.
As a mother of two toddlers, I don’t have much time to see clients but I DO have time to help you educate your self in the use of natures medicines, the medicines humans have been using since humans have been around! The knowledge and the power that has been taken away from us by our current medical system. Mothers used to be able to treat common complaints like a scratched knee, headache, tooth ache, ear ache, tummy aches and other common aches and pains of child hood from their garden and basic knowledge of plant medicine. That knowledge has been lost over the last hundred years, and I am to bring it back!
We focus on getting to know one herb a month on a deep and meaningful level. These herbs are common, generally safe herbs that people have used for ages. We discuss many different ways to use each herb, and are sure to cover any contraindications – either with drugs, pregnancy, breastfeeding, the works. We do our best to cover the bases. You can tell since our issues average 60 pages long!
Now, currently they are published as a PDF file and mailed out to our subscribers on the first of the month, or when they subscribe, but we have had a huge number of requests to publish the issues in book format. As a paper book you can hold in your hands, flip through with a nice hot cup of herbal coffee, and enjoy without the glow of a computer screen.
