Get Healthy.  Stay Healthy.  Naturally

     I began this journey because I discovered that by staying on my medication I was putting my health at risk.  I came across an article saying that those who discontinued taking their statin drugs had a 50% chance of developing Parkinson's.  Those were not acceptable odds.

   When I began to do research on alternative medicine, I discovered a whole world of natural, herbal medicines.  I began my adventure in herbal living, eating the right foods, drinking herbal and medicinal teas, and making herbal preparations.  

     Now I'm sharing what I learned with you.  On this site you'll find articles on herbs and how to use them.  You'll also get to take advantage of usingmy herbal preparations.

     Let's stay healthy together!

My winter series is on Power Foods.  The best way to stay healthy is to eat real food, not Kool Whip or Cheetos, but real food with powerful nutrition built in.  We will include foods such as avocados, nuts, spinach and yogurt.  So sit back and enjoy your favorite foods with a cup of tea.

If you have a short growing season, it might be wise to start your vegetables and herbs inside.  Look at your seed packets for the recommended starting dates.  I'll need to start my garden huckleberry and my tomatillos in February.  It isn't too soon to begin planning your garden.

In my case, I have to plan it out on paper.  Everything is covered in a foot, or more, of snow.

FYI, I'm currently taking a class on emergency herbalism.  We live in Colorado, one of the outdoor capitals in this country.  My goal is to provide excellent information on alternative medicine to our bikers, campers, snowboarders, hikers, fishermen, and the like.  I will keep studying, so that you can keep getting the right information.  And as I learn, I'll pass my knowledge onto you.  Deal?

This week's Power Food is CHOCOLATE!  Yumm!
