Who I am..
First I am a child of the One True King (yes that’s also a song), wife to a wonderful, hardworking husband, and homeschooling mama of 3 wonderful kiddos and 1 rotten dog (yeah, the dog joins in school but mostly sleeps through class).
I grew up in a typical family (although I’m an only child-don’t hold that against me)-my parents tried to make me eat healthy and we ate out some but not a lot. I was involved in every sport our small school offered and seemed pretty healthy growing up. But I did have ALOT of sinus trouble. I mean the doctor pretty much expected to see me every three or four months like clockwork. It was bad y’all! (Yes, I’m from the South.)
I just dealt with it thinking this was part of life-until I got pregnant with our first child. Just in case you don’t know, while your pregnant there is not many prescriptions that are considered safe while still being helpful to sinus infections. But pregnancy is only 9 months so I can handle it right? But then I chose to breastfeed and that brings up a whole other list of “you can’t take these now” prescriptions. What’s a mama to do? That is when I first began looking into natural, herbal remedies. And since I kept having babies and breastfeeding (I was pregnant or breastfeeding for almost 7 years straight), I had to do something. So I started learning what was relevant to us at the time and saw how our bodies could heal themselves (without prescriptions) if given the right nutrients through food and herbs.
I soon realized that overcoming sickness was not enough. I wanted to NOT get sick in the first place! I wanted to go through a winter or cold/flu season and not fear every sneezing person I passed or every germ that might be on the grocery buggy. (I would tell you we never get sick anymore, but that would be a lie and you’re smart enough to not believe that anyway.) But I did continue researching and learning and trying what I was learning and we kept getting better! So while we do still have an occasional sickness, it’s usually not as severe or doesn’t last as long. Oh, and those horrible sinus infections I got every time the weather changed-gone! Yep, I may get one from time to time, but I now know what causes it (it’s usually my own fault) so I correct that and am better in a few days-no prescriptions!
From all this developed a passion to learn more about God’s wonderful creation and how He has given us so many plants that heal, strengthen and nourish our bodies. And I want to share with you the knowledge I’ve learned, the products I’ve made, and the resources I trust to help you on your journey to health!
