Profile Information

How did you learn about the "Heal Thyself" site?
from Pat R. via EHA.
What does "holistic" mean to you?
Approaching our health by looking at the big picture: nutrition, circumstances, emotional/psychological state etc. Addressing the whole problem and not just treating ourselves symptomatically.
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
About 4 years... every since becoming a mom! I'm sure the interest was latent in me before then, but motherhood has really caused it to blossom.
a little about me
I am married, mother of two boys (so far). I am an avid babywearer, and passionate about (ecological)breastfeeding, EC, and other "AP" type practices. I have been preparing traditional foods for a little over a year and I also enjoy languages, traveling, culture, religion, reading and learning new things! I hope to grow some medicinal and culinary herbs soon and figure out what else I can grow on our shady property.
Professional or business affiliations?
None.
