How to get healthy naturally

With the rising costs of healthcare and an economy that is looking pretty dismal, people are turning to more natural ways of staying healthy and curing whatever might be ailing them. One method that many people (including myself) are turning to is herbal healing.

I have been a work-at-home mom for over two years. Sure, I represent some amazing companies, but I do so as an independent contractor. In other words, no health insurance. Getting added to my husband’s policy through his work would raise his monthly premiums by over $300. We make just enough to not be able to get me coverage through Medicaid. So, what to do?

I have been researching healthy living through natural methods. Herbal healing, homeopathic remedies, essential oils, eating healthier… you name it and I’m researching. I have started raising my own herbs and have been making healthier meals for my family. I am taking Skinny Fiber, an all-natural weight loss supplement that not only has helped me lose weight, but has also helped with many of my medical issues, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, migraines, high blood pressure, depression. (Learn more of my Skinny Fiber journey here – http://www.LiveHealthyWithPatty.com). I have started using Wildtree food products (http://mywildtree.com/pattygraham), which contain no preservatives, no GMOs, no MSG. But even that just doesn’t seem like enough. So here I am. Studying “alternative” medicine. That phrase just makes me crazy. Let’s think about this, shall we?

Modern medicine.

  • Dreamed up by pharmaceutical companies as a way to make a profit. Have you had to get a prescription filled recently? Holy smokes! More often than not, the drugs cost more than the office visit! I know many people who spend $300 to over $1,000 a MONTH for medications that their doctors have prescribed. How often have you heard of someone taking one medication to counteract the side effects of another one they are taking? Is that really healthy? I don’t think so.
  • Peddled by physicians who get “incentives” from the drug companies to push their products. Now don’t get me wrong… I love our family physician. She is amazing. However, she is open to more natural forms of healing. AND she understands that we are not made of money when it comes to paying for prescriptions. She is a rare breed of doctor – one with an open mind.
  • Approved by the FDA. Don’t get me started on the FDA. This is a federal governmental agency that approves products that MAY help with one issue but have side effects that can number a dozen or more and quite often, the side effects are far WORSE than the condition the drug is treating. How many times have we heard of drugs that the FDA approved that are now causing serious issues, sometimes even including death? You’ve seen those commercials about the class-action lawsuits. Should we really be putting our health into the hands of our government?

Now let’s talk about healing with herbs and essential oils. These are not new concepts. Through the ages, people have used herbs and oils in healing. It’s only really been since the beginning of the 20th century, that these old ways have been pushed aside to make room for “modern” medicine. Sure, people may be living longer today, but what about the QUALITY of life they are living? I love the fact that I am off all my medications. Not only do I feel great, but the money I save every month… WOW!

Over the next few months, I will be featuring some of the amazing information that I have been discovering about natural ways to be healthy. I hope you will find it interesting and maybe even start to apply it to your lifestyle. Thanks for hanging in there with me! Be sure to FOLLOW me to get all the great information!
