After nearly a year....

So after nearly a year, I’m ready to start blogging again!
Here’s an update on my status: This past year I've continued with my study of traditional foods and alternative medicine. I've enrolled in a couple herbalist courses. The first wasn't exactly what I hoped it would be. However, the second (my current herbal course) goes above and beyond what I was hoping for. I’m a student with Vintage Remedies School of Natural Health. I’m enrolled as a Family Herbalist student, and I’m learning SO much.

Actually, I’m learning so much that I have a feeling it will be spilling over onto this little blog I started last year. As I study, I find myself taking notes that I want to share with other people. If anyone is still reading, stay tuned for blog updates with my thoughts and newly-found knowledge.  

I highly recommend Vintage Remedies to anyone interested in herbs or nutrition. Jessie Hawkins (founder) understands the meaning of holistic health. This is not just any old herbal school! Vintage Remedies does not teach merely how to treat symptoms, but focuses on prevention. They recognize the importance of food and lifestyle as foundational to good health. The information in my course has already caused me to rethink the way I view the germ theory, the common cold, and even how I make bread.

My goals this new year are to complete my Family HerbalistCertification, start an herbal Etsy store, start teaching classes through Vintage Remedies Essential Series, and enroll as a Clinical Master Herbalist through Vintage Remedies.

God bless,

"FRESH" (video)

A friend sent my family a link to a great documentary called "FRESH." It's about sustainable agriculture and raising food naturally. Joel Salatin is featured, along with a really cool urban farm and an "all natural" pig farm. The movie is very enlightening and reveals a little of the mess that goes on in industry farming. Please watch this soon! The movie is only available online until Feb. 1st.
