Give yourself the gift of health

Happy Thanksgiving - a few days late! How was your turkey dinner? We spent the day with my husband's family and had a magnificent feast topped off with pies, cookies, and cheesecake. Tis the season for goodies galore! Unfortunately, that night started a weekend-long stomach bug in our house.

I know, just the thought of it makes you feel just a tiny bit nauseous, doesn't it?

We're all fully recovered now, but I do not want to go through that for the rest of winter. I am fully determined to keep my family healthy and boost our immune systems! And if you've followed this blog long enough, you know we are all about doing this naturally and safely. We are huge advocates for naturopathic medicine - such as homeopathy and acupuncture treatments. As a matter of fact, it was homeopathy that cured my little guy of the flu last week. These medicines are proven effective, safe, and with minimal (if any) side effects, so I encourage you to seek out such care. In this day and age, it seems that many of us are all about diagnosing and getting a prescription for a quick fix. Sometimes this avenue is necessary. Oftentimes, however, it is more harmful than helpful. When used properly, homeopathy and other forms of medicines are blessings to families and individuals who look to heal various ailments. I can speak from experience how amazing these gentle remedies are.

While you can certainly learn some of these medicines on your own, I would highly recommend seeking the guidance of a wonderful naturopath. There a a lot of wonderful specialists who want to help people feel well again - so support them and seek out their quality care.
