"First time I've ever been classified as "New England" LOL, but I'm in Virginia (Charlottesville) and I've got water kefir grains and brown rice sourdough starter to share if I don't kill them first. Between various…"
I found "Heal Thyself" through MDC's allergy forum. I am stephienoodle there.
What does "holistic" mean to you?
To me, holistic means treating all of the parts of the body to fix a health issue, not just masking the health issue by treating the one part of the body that is showing symptoms. It means using nutritional means instead of pharamceutical means whenever possible.
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
For the last 2+ years in particular, since I discovered that IgG food issues were causing all of my health problems.
a little about me
I am 27 years old and have been SO much healthier since discovering my food allergies 2 years ago. Prior to figuring out the food allergy bit, I had a suspected case of multiple sclerosis/Parkinsons, fibromyalgia, PCOS, and a boatload of other health problems. Changing my diet has resolved all of those problems. I have one DS who just turned one, who seems to be having a few food reactions of his own, and I'm hoping to heal both of our bodies!
Professional or business affiliations?
I am a former special education teacher... but I don't know that I offer much because of it. ;-)
