Rediscovering Health: A Journey with Natural Medicine

Are you feeling lost as you try to find your way back to health? Perhaps each day brings another layer of fatigue, bloating, or stress. Or maybe you have been dealing with hormonal issues such as PMS, irregular cycles, or infertility for a long time. If so, know that you are not alone and that there is hope for reclaiming your life through natural medicine. With the right knowledge and resources available today, we can create customized natural healing plans tailored specifically to each individual’s needs. On this journey of rediscovering health, I invite all women who are ready to take back their power and improve their quality of life in an intuitive yet powerful way.


Outside the Conventional Box


In our modern contemporary world, more and more women are actively seeking out alternative approaches to conventional medicine. We are exploring holistic and integrative methods that aim to provide comprehensive care and promote overall well-being. While the current insurance-based healthcare system may excel in managing acute crises, it often falls short when it comes to addressing the complexities of chronic diseases and providing long-term support. 


In today’s world, chronic conditions drain our quality of life and make us feel older beyond our years.


As women embrace a more holistic perspective on healthcare, we are now expanding our options and seeking solutions that prioritize prevention, personalized care, and a deeper understanding of their unique health needs. Join me in exploring alternatives that go beyond the usual norms. Let’s find answers to your health concerns together. Many women have already embarked on this journey before they reach my office, having tried various strategies on their own. 


So, where should one start on this wellness journey?


The Grocery’s Produce Aisle 


Do you have a preferred grocery aisle? Mine would have to be the vibrant and colorful produce section at the grocery store. The wellness journey is not just about the gym; the answer lies in the freshness and variety of the produce aisle.


As Lifelong Fitness Coach Jack Lalanne once said, “Let nutrition be your king and exercise be your queen, and then you have a kingdom.” 

Indeed, it is often said that one should let food be medicine. By choosing nourishing and nutrient-rich meals, we can support our overall well-being and promote a healthier lifestyle. The power of food goes beyond satisfying hunger; it can play a vital role in maintaining good health and preventing certain ailments. 


Let’s embrace the concept of food as medicine and make mindful choices that benefit not only our bodies but also our minds, you know?


Subtle Inflammation

In my 20 years of specializing in natural medicine, I’ve spoken with thousands of women seeking better health for themselves and their families. Each woman has her own unique struggle, and many turn to natural medicine when they just don’t feel well. The discomfort often stems from unrecognized inflammation throughout the body.

Inflammation, if left unnoticed, can quietly weave its way into our bodies, causing a gradual deterioration in health that spans not just months but even years. The danger lies in its stealthy nature, as it often goes unrecognized, leading to delays in treatment and the possibility of unforeseen complications arising. 

Are you feeling stiff and achy in the morning? Tired despite getting enough sleep? Struggling with weight despite numerous attempts to shed it? Experiencing brain fog? These could all be signs of underlying inflammation, which, if left unchecked, can increase the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. It’s important to make a conscious effort to stay vigilant and address inflammation promptly, as it plays a crucial role in safeguarding our long-term well-being.


Tips From The Wellness Train 


Let me share with you four simple tips to reduce inflammation and keep you firmly rooted on the wellness train:


  1. Fuel Up with Anti-Inflammatory Foods: Incorporate deeply pigmented foods like leafy greens, berries, and cherries into your diet. Try to have at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.
  2. Cut Back on Inflammatory Foods: Avoid fried foods, dairy products, and highly processed and refined foods. Opt instead for water, coconut water, and unsweetened teas, steering clear of fad beverages.
  3. Embrace Regular Exercise: Consistently investing just 20 minutes daily with unwavering focus can yield substantial results.


  1. Manage Stress Effectively: Ensure you’re sleeping well, implementing healthy habits, and making adjustments to minimize stress.

One-Stop Shop for Overall Wellness


Overall, returning to natural medicine was not only a revelation in terms of how far modern healthcare had come; it also proved that it’s far smarter to address issues rather than put Band-Aids over them. It’s evident that fresh produce and herbs can help with inflammation, an enemy of wellness, and the secret ingredient lies in using ingredients from more than one cuisine or culture. Taking advice from the wellness train — learning to prioritize, nurture yourself regularly, and make your versions of routines — can help move everything else forward in life.
