Hello all of my fellow Herbies.
Thank you for joining me on my website Herbal Amy. I hope you take the time to look around and do lots of reading. I have truly enjoyed my herbal adventures and hope to have many more to come. I am on a quest. Won't you join me?
I am going to be 40 years old this year. Do you believe me?
Why is that?
The Power of Nature.
My journey for better health started many years ago as I become fascinated with Alternative and Eastern Medicine. After retiring from the military (I am a disabled Army veteran), I went back to college to learn as much as I could. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Biology and then I went on for another year, studying in the Masters Program for Biology. As I continued my studies, I fiddled a little in Athletic Nutrition, went deep into Earthwise Herbalism, and found myself enthralled with Holistic Herbalism. As I continue learning I find myself reading more about Chinese Herbal Medicine.
I've continued my learning expedition by reading from some of the greats, such as Matthew Woods, David Hoffmann, Rosemary Gladstar, and others.
I believed there was a better way to manage common ailments without Big-Pharma and their poisons. Everything you put into your body will express outwardly in one form or another. You CAN choose healthy!!!
Most of my food is made up of what I can grow or raise on my homestead. If I cannot grow it or raise it myself, I find someone with the same ideals as me and I barter for what I lack.
(Yes, that baby chick is mine. She turned into a wonderful hen)
Herbal Medicine has been time tested and proven over thousands of years. In eastern societies, herbal remedies are the #1 go to for treating common ailments. Herbalism and Holistic Medicine is held to a much higher regard.
Do me a favor...... google "Ayurvedic Medicine". What did you find?
This is the WORLD's oldest holistic healing system known to man. It was developed more than 3000 years ago. I agree with their belief that the whole body must be in balance and if any one part is out of balance, your health will suffer. Taking care of your mind, body and spirit is the core of what Herbal Amy is all about.
The year 2017 is kicking off to a really good start. I have the pleasure to be a vendor at the local farmers market and wanted to share with you my experience.
The Nampa Farmers Market is full of wonderful vendors. I really love the customers because they are so friendly and love to listen to me talk about what my herbs can do for them. I could spend all day telling people about all the healthy benefits of each individual herb!!! Memorial weekend at the market, I spend so much time talking to people and helping them pick out the perfect herbs for them. It was such a wonderful day that I didn't want it to end.
But, alas.... all good things come to an end. I look forward to seeing all those happy faces next weekend. I love each and every one of you and look forward to helping you along your path to better health and fast healing. I love you all!!!
