Hi there. I’m Debby and I would like to welcome you to my alternative world. I have had an interest in plants and their usefulness regarding health since I was a young girl. Although I am a certified herbalist, my interest in health and well being has extended far beyond my strong desire to know all about what plants were useful for medicine as well as for food.
What I have discovered
First, that what we put into our bodies greatly affects the health and well being of them. The old expression “we are what we eat” is very true. What we consume is more important than most of us realize. Many diseases are connected with poor autoimmune health and they can be, and often are, helped or even cured by changing what we put into our bodies.
Second, that adding herbs and supplements to your diet can actually help in your struggle to regain health after diagnosis with chronic diseases, or just to maintain a healthy body. Many of the foods we already eat or use to season our food are actually considered as herbs. In fact, the 3,000+ year old Chinese theory of medicine uses food as medicine.
Third, that a healthy diet is more than just a diet that you follow until you achieve the desired results. It is making lifestyle changes. That doesn’t mean you can never have your favorite comfort foods again; but it does mean that you need to learn healthier ways to make those things that you love so much. or find healthier treats to replace them.
I have family members and friends who have autoimmune related medical conditions, which is why I have chosen to explore this area. I hope you will follow along as we learn together how to put the knowledge I’ve already gained, along with new information I am garnering along the way to use for the best possible results for my family and friends as well as yours.
