Growing up my mom would never take us to the hospital.
She always taught us that food is medicine. You are what you eat. If you eat right it's rare you would get sick. She is right because we never did go to the hospital. Every meal she would go on and tell us the benefits of each
vegetables in our meals. Living a holistic lifestyle runs in our blood, my great grandfather was also an Ayurvedic doctor, now my middle sister is also a nutritionist. When something is off with my body I have learnt to go to the root cause of the problem not a quick fix by popping a pill. I only turn to western medicines as a last resort. Being a reiki master myself i always check in with my emotions and food I'm eating first.
