Day 83/365 - On My Now
(Continued from On my why)
Over time, my resolve for holistic and preventative care prevailed. I studied nutrition and became a certified health coach by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). Then I started this website, to spread my message to anyone willing to listen (or read). Here I write articles and blogs, and do one-on-one and group coaching sessions.
Finally, in the next step of my journey I enrolled at Arbor Vitae school of herbal medicine, located right here in NY. Here I’m learning that healing is not only about focusing on individual ailments, or even individual root causes...it’s about connecting to something greater than yourself to create a thriving community of humans, plants, and ecosystems. It’s about finding a sense of belonging and having an active role within a beautiful healthy environment, full of networking, interconnections, and relationships. To heal our ailments, we must accept our human nature in the context of the greater Earth; we must heal through understanding and help one another; we must live graciously and gratefully; we must love every part of our beautiful bodies and earth, fiercely.
