Our goal is that our passion for the best health news will enable you to take personal control of your health.
A Passion for Natural Remedies was born
At a young age, I took a nutrition course that got me going in the direction of natural solutions. I was always involved in competitive sports, so anything that could give me an edge sparked my interest. I took a nutrition course that opened my eyes to the power of food and natural solutions on our body and mind.
The important lesson that I learned was this: the daily decisions that I made in food and exercise had a direct impact on my performance and overall health.
The Passion was Awoken and Enflamed by a Series of Problems
As the late 20s came alone, so did a series of serious challenging health issues. I was focused on adjusting to a very fast-paced workplace. So I was not as involved in sports and nutrition. Several health challenges came along. I looked to medical doctors to simply resolve the problems, perhaps with a medicine or some magic advice. To my disappointment, they could not provide serious solutions. A few years passed without answers and my hopes of a recovery began to fade away, but I did not give up.
I started going to health food stores and started peppering them with a thousand questions and in some way was setting them up as the new doctor-type. They did not pretend, however, to have the answer. They did something different. They imparted information that I could assimilate and build upon to make informed decisions in my daily life. This is when the old passion I had before was re-ignited.
The valuable lesson learned was this: While I should not entirely disregard medical professionals, the decisions regarding my health and well-being are my own. I have to take responsibility and ask questions and find answers.
Many of you are at that stage and you are here because you are seek answers to questions, remedies for problems.
Daily Food and Natural Remedies as our First Line of Defense
I soon returned to my previous passion and lesson learned regarding daily habits with natural food.
“Let food be thy medicine,” is a quote that is credited to Hippocrates (400 BC). Our first line of defense is in the things that we eat and get naturally on a day-to-day basis. Moreover our habits (good or bad) set by personal decisions, make a big difference in prevention and the remedy of various ailments. We ourselves are responsible and can have an impact on our health.
In this period I learned that there are many powerful, God-given, properties in nature that are very effective as solutions against various ailments. We do not always need a prescription, although sometimes it may be the case.
One example, is when I discovered that my condition may have been linked to receding gums. Furthermore, the mercury filling could have been further complicating my condition. In this discovery period, I learned about holistic dentistry. I also learned about the power of essential oils in dealing with receding gums and periodontal gum disease. This was the health challenge that caused me to launch this site. I learned why dental health is so important. In various forms, I repeatedly read the following phrase:
The mouth is the gateway to disease in the body.
As I learned more about the link between disease in the mouth and disease in the body from holistic dentists, I had my mercury fillings removed. I changed my dental hygiene habits and my eating habits as well. I started using chemical-free dental products that did not irritate my gums and teeth.
