No One Can Make You Healthy

A little bit about summer heat, emotions, and different approaches to feeling better.

Something About Crystals

“Hey, random question. Do you use crystals, or know anything about crystals?” One of my very best friends asked me this question this afternoon, just as I happened to be returning home from a crystal-shopping mission across town. We’ve known each other for the better part of thirty years, and know A LOT about each…

Globalization, Research, and Shopping Local

There’s something to be said for cultural adaption. Moving to a foreign country, we miss some creature comforts, like the same brands of food, or even pens!

The Journey Begins

I feel like there is often a clear, memorable moment in which we decide we’re sick and tired of being sick and tired. For me, one of the biggest moments was the first time I visited a naturopath. I had been plagued (ha. ha. maybe there could be a more fitting word here…) by illness,…

Healing Autoimmune Disease: A Practical and Spiritual Approach

Not here to claim any cures. I am here to share my story, what works for me, and how a holistic approach has proven more helpful than solely spiritual or solely allopathic approach. We are more than just our bodies, and more than just our spirits. We are humans, and I personally believe that getting…
