Welcome! We love to meet new friends. Many of us have met on natural health forums and have gathered here. We're delighted to have you join us. Take a minute to introduce yourself. What interests and hobbies do you have? What fun projects are you working on? What do you want to learn more about?
There is a "Friend" tool here on Heal Thyself! If you click on the Photo of a member, you can see their profile page. On the left side-bar is a "Add as Friend" button!
Let's be Friends!
I'm Pat. I unschool/homeschool our 11 year old son. We love to travel. My son and I are driving to all 48 states and have 13 more states to go. We drove 8500 miles to the West Coast and 4000 miles to the 5 Great Lakes and Canada in the past 18 months. My dh and I have been married 30 years and we have eight cats. We live in North Carolina and love nature, especially the ocean.
I'm passionate about holistic health, especially whole food nutrients, digestion and detoxification. I've learned a lot about the MTHFR gene polymorphism after my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2009. Unfortunately, she was not open to alternative health and died about a month after her diagnosis. I've been researching and realizing many health issues are related to impaired detoxification and our toxic exposures. Mercury (silver amalgam) fillings and Candida are two of my related passions.
And I love to evangelize about the dangers of antibiotics and steroids and the benefits of Master Tonic and kefir. :-)
