I'm "Mom" to three adult daughters and "Gaga" to a precious grandson. My "Simple Solutions for Healthier Lifestyle" story began in late 70's early 80's, when I was a young mom who simply wanted to raise my daughters in the healthiest environment possible; but then in 1984, a trip to the pediatrician turned out to be a turning point in our lives.
My middle daughter was four-years-old and had a second ear infection soon after recovering from a first one that had been treated with antibiotics. The pediatrician, seeing that I was concerned, scolded me saying, “I don’t know why you’re upset; children have these things all winter long!” I looked at him and replied, “Not my children!” and thus began my journey to learn all that I could to support my personal belief that it was not normal for kids – or for anyone -- to be chronically sick.
There was no internet in those days, so I read, researched, visited health food stores, asked questions and learned from the wisdom of “older” moms who raised their children in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s nursing them through the then routine acute childhood illnesses of chickenpox, mumps and measles using good nutrition, fluids, rest, lots of good old-fashioned TLC and very little, if any, medical intervention. My journey led me to learn all that I could about routine vaccines for children and adults and how they might be having adverse effects on our health. I also learned that when medical intervention was needed, there were gentle and yet highly effective alternatives, such as homeopathy, to help restore balance and good health without the side effects of many allopathic treatments.
We started eating organic foods and continued to adopt a healthier lifestyle. My passion for a holistic approach to good health intensified as I learned that healthy unprocessed foods, wise supplementation, exercise, clean air, clean water and reducing exposure to toxins both inside and outside the home made a significant difference in my health and the health of my children. That passion evolved into my full-time mission to help other families by sharing what I have learned along the way.
