Okay. So I am not now, nor have I ever been, opposed to the use of medicine on myself or my loved ones in times of actual need — but you also won’t see me popping an Advil anytime I come down with a headache. Having been called, “my flower child” by my mama and “mother Earth” by my mama-in-law, it probably goes without saying that I do my best to take proactive steps in eating, using, etc. all things natural in all areas of my life. I’m a minimalist when it comes to using today’s widely accepted medicines for sure, and I honestly have a great passion for living this way. And since we’re all knee deep in cold/flu season, I thought it was about time to share some of the knowledge I’ve come across in my short years here on this Earth. There is still so much to learn!
Below I’ve included a list of items we have used, currently use, and will use in the future broken down by certain symptoms or ailments that someone might experience — and for now, that’s all. I hope to write another blog post in the future that includes a little ‘blurb’ with each item doing my best to explain its properties/benefits, our own personal experiences, and why we’ve chosen to use it in our home — but for now, I hope this leaves your wheels turning and inspires some research of your own!
