Joined 8 years ago from Lancaster, California
Herbalist, born in Los Angeles, California, raised in the sucuburbs of West Covinia, California. Background in Herbs since I was a child, because I was born premature and weighed only 3 pounds, my grandmother on my mother side was from the Indian Reservation in Oklahoma, when she came to california, she had 12 children, 6 of them came down with some sort of sickness, that put them in the hospital, 3 of them died, from that time forward, my grandmother always preached to my siblings and me to never use doctors, she knew herbs like the back of her hand, she would go out to the streets of california and pick plants that were healing and cooking, she raised chickens, bought a whole cow from a farmer and had it cut into parts for eating, Brandy, honey and lemon was the remedy for colds and coughs. My grandmother was a strong believer in the bodies ability to heal itself with the proper nutrition, rest and exercise. Because my lungs were weak at birth, the doctors told me not to exert myself too much and gave me an inhaler to breathe more easily. My grandmother took the inhaler away, made me run and play, and told me to keep a positive outlook. I have used herbs my whole life, but did not become certified until 2011, to me it is crazy to become certified for using what is natural, especially to the American Indian race. Like my grandmother I strongly believe in the bodies ability to heal itself. I will go to a doctor if I have a severe injury. I have nothing against doctors, they have their place just like any other profession.
